Very nice blade. The liners are thin and the liner-lock takes some getting used to. There's a certain way you have to adjust your fingers so you can close the knife one-handed. But once that's down, it's reasonably easy. The handle undercuts the liner, so for heavy usage it might hurt a bit after awhile if you rest your thumb at the top of the handle. I could see using gloves, or an entirely different knife, though, if it comes to that.
The reason I got sold on this knife is the amazing grind on the blade. I can see why push-cuts would be nice on the tip, and cutting rope and finer work reserved to the hollow grind on the recurve, where it accelerates your cut as you approach the tip. Just a nice functional blade, and the micarta handle is very nice to the touch.
The liners and lock and ergonomics of the handle means it won't be for heavy usage, but the looks and the nice grind of the blade makes it a joy to use anyway. There's a uniqueness to it. More character than most EDC's.
