I received this knife in a trade with custom milled scales and backspacer that look great. i loved it so much, i bought a second one. Out of the box, the vg-10 blade is very sharp. i touched it up a bit to scary sharpness. VG-10 is excellent steel in my opinion and most would agree. The jimping along the spine of the blade is very good as is the jimping along the flipper. The blade deploys with little effort at a moderate speed. There are faster manual folders i've encountered but the lock-up on the blade is vault- solid! the lahar i received in the trade was perfectly adjusted, i just put loc-tite on the pivot screw. the factory lahar had to be slightly adjusted to my tastes and was also "loc-tited". The stock scales on the lahar offer superb purchase. there is not tto much however that you will tear up your pockets. the scales also line-up perfectly all the way around and the overall fit and finish of the knife is excellent. The blade shape is excellent for slicing and has a reinforced tip making it suitable for heavier piercing tasks. ergonomically, it is very comfortable but its not a "melt in your hand" kind of feel. Overall, i would deffinately consider this a must-have tactical or edc folder (although a bit heavy for edc- 5 or so ounces). if you like it, get it, you won't be disappointed.
