I bought this knife because I love the look of it. Stainless silver bolsters, black micarta handle, and the upswept blade are all very cool.
The opening action is overly stiff. Per my research, this is a common complaint on this knife. It seems to be getting better with time, however.
The knife is not light for it's size, but is very solid and well made. Very sharp, and the blade (VG-10) is nice quality.
I don't carry this that often because I want to keep it nice looking.
The one advantage of this model is that it should hold its value well, as per many Spyderco models. This is being discontinued by Spyderco after 2009.
