Excellent knife. Not the most EDC friendly due to thickness/thick grind/not the best slicer but it was still a great knife. I only sold mine to someone who fell in love with it and couldn't find one.

It is indeed close to being perfect. I recently purchased one in DA and it’s a hoot to deploy manually or automatically. I have yet to have anyone figure out how to deploy it automatically without being shown how to. :)
