Mine just arrived from HKS too - I REALLY like it. The only thing I would change would be to replace the clip with a deep carry wire clip, but the rest of the knife is near perfect. The short blade is small enough to not be intimidating, but large enough for good cutting ability. The handle is large enough that the ergonomics are excellent and it fits in the hand well. The woven carbon fiber has a great texture in hand, and looks gorgeous. And the flipper is smooth like butter.
This might supplant the ZDP/CF Caly 3 as my favorite EDC. With the sub-3-inch blade, I might even put this one in the "little big knife" category, although it's width definitely doesn't make it feel little in the pocket.
