Well excecuted copy of Bob Lum's "Forester" model. Large knife, with exceptional full flat grid that is both thin and tall. G-10 looks great, not too overly grippy, but handle ergos are good enough to over come the slicker G-10. Does have a nice pattern to the G-10. Clip is a copy of Bob Lum's original clip, which you may like or not. Clip is not movable to another spot on the knife, so if you are left handed might be an issue. Axis lock is typical, strong, reliable, and possibly the best knife lock out there. If you are able to navigate around Benchmade's MAP pricing it is a good value for the money.
