I started off really loving the Chill. It's aesthetically pleasing, deploys quickly and smoothly, built of decent quality materials, and has nice fit and finish.
However, I've found several things that I really don't like about it over time. For whatever reason the Chill doesn't hold an edge particularly well. For whatever reason it just dulls a bit quicker than other knives I have that use 8Cr13MoV. Maybe it's something to do with the grind. It gets really scary sharp but after cutting anything serious it becomes dull almost immediately.
I also find the pocket clip to be really terrible. Out of the box it was so tight that I had to struggle to clip the Chill into the pocket of my jeans. So every time I used it, I would have to spend two or three minutes trying to put my knife away. That was exceedingly annoying. After a few months the clip did loosen up. However, it loosened up to a point where now the clip barely holds the knife in my pocket. In fact I've had numerous times when I've had my knife pop out when I reached in to grab my phone. That's equally annoying. In fact, that's been so annoying that I've stopped carrying my Chill all together and it sits in the junk drawer of my desk.
In summary, the Chill is a decent knife but there are a few things wrong with it that limit how often one might carry it.
