This is a pretty typical gentlemans folder. The knife is beautiful in person. It is very sleek, particularly the blade profile.
The first thing you should know about this knife is that it has no clip whatsoever. Also, the thumb stud is set up only for right handed people, although it is held on by a small torx bit so it looks like it is reversible.
The bone looks very nice and has a little bit of texture to it. There is a lanyard hole as well. The fit and finish is pretty good, however I would not describe it as amazing. My blade is alittle bit off center, and there is no way to adjust the pivot or scales, which are pinned.
The lock snaps open nice and tight, no blade play in the vertical direction. There is an acceptable amount of blade play in the horizontal direction when open. The lock itself seems stout, and the knife is not particularly heavy. The blade will take a pretty nice edge as well, and corrosion doesn't seem to be a big problem.
All that being said, this is a knife I'd carry at a wedding or somewhere more formal. It really looks the part, and is nicely sized to be useful but not draw attention. I would not however, choose this knife for camping etc. As it's name implies, it really is a dress folder and does that job very well.
