I have always been fascinated by the idea of owning Automatic Knife, but to own one in at least my state is illegal (other than active military, police or if you only have one arm) and is out of the question.
My son is active military so I had the chance to try his 5300SBK out, then I went to my local gun store with him and saw the 583SBK-Warm and we compared them.
The 583SBK-Warm (the black semi serrated blade version) is completely legal in my state and all over the USA, but it did leave me wondering why do you need an Auto with FAST action on this BEAUTIFUL Knife.
The build quality is absolutely superb and the G10 Scales are very hardy without any rubbing off on my sons 5300SBK black coating that's plagued it.
I found the scale quality is superior to the normal 580 version in a NASTY PLASTIC scales and the action is extremely smooth, now I say who needs an Auto when you can have one of these.
This knife really covers the whole gambit from self defense to simply peeling an orange and the RED back spacer just makes the knife POP.
You know it's a great knife when that he prefers it to what the Military Issued HIM....:)
I think it was a little pricey at first, but is well worth it in the long run..!!!
