Ive had this knife for a little under a month and it is awesomen the fit and finish is adequate in my opinion. It opens very smoothly and locks up tighter than my delica 4. Im very impressed, the 8cr13mov holds its edge quite well, and is also very easy to sharpen. Ive used the delica 4 for a long time and this one is just as good in my opinion just the vg10 will hold its edge for about an extra day of regular use. Its an incredible value.

My knife is the g-10 version. It is like having a g-10 delica with finger choil. I love this knife. The steel is pretty good but not like the vg-10 of the delica. It is very easy to get razor sharp. It holds its edge for awhile too. Definitely not a junk steel. You can usually destroy the edge with 8cr14mov and easily get it back into shape. This is a great little budget blade with a strong midlock and a scalpel like blade. Good ergonomics for a small knife. I just don't see many drawbacks to this knife. It also comes in frn, stainless and now even titanium scales at a reasonable price. I highly recommend this knife.

FRN PLAIN EDGE VERSION

This knife is incredible for the price. It is designed by Spyderco and modeled after their Delica 4 FFG. As it costs about 1/3 of a Delica, I didn't expect it to be nearly as good.

BUILD QUALITY:
Very good. There are a couple fit and finish issues, such as the blade centering being slightly off, and the three pieces of FRN being slightly off level on the back of the knife. Lockup is excellent. Opening is very smooth thanks to two bronze bushings.

ERGOS:
Almost perfect. The handles aren't completely squared off, but aren't sharp/uncomfortable. One of the best features of this knife is the choil. I find the knife much easier to hold using the choil; it provides great point control. The FRN is very grippy and the jimping is decent.

VALUE:
Possibly the best knife in this price range. The steel is good for the price (8cr13mov). The pocket clip is four-way positionable, and rests on the logo, not the grippy part of the FRN as to not tear up your pockets. For 1/3 of the price of the Delica, you get the same knife with worse steel, slightly worse fit

An absolutely amazing knife for the money. I have the G-10 version. The 8cr13mov steel is perfectly adequate for an EDC blade, and the blade shape is near perfect, as is the handle shape,love this knife. The clip is near perfect as well, sturdy, looks good, not too tight, and not too loose. If you have the money buy the Delica, or just buy this and the Cara Cara for the price of the Delica.

I bought this knife as a cheap EDC. And that's were it begins... I love this knife, so much that it sees more pocket time then my spyderco knives do. It fits in your hand like butter melts on warm toast. The steel is easy to touch up and I am to the point were 6 strokes on a creramic rod and I am good for at least 2-3 weeks. The Best EDC I have ever owned.

Good to hear the good comments! I have one coming in the mail. This knife isn't a fancy one, but by all I have heard should be a very tough one for a great price. Thanks for the review!
