The first impression I got from this knife was how beautiful it is. The redish wood really works well with the stainless tool steel that makes the frame. When I opened the knife, I was impressed by the smoothness of the action. There is a fine set of brass bushings that provide the perfect amount of tension for easy opening. The knife will not open with a wrist snap when the blade is fully closed. However, if you start it open a little bit with your thumb, and then wrist snap it, it will open and lock just fine. I feel it is the perfect amount of tension for saftey. The blade is the best part of the knive. I've not had an S20v alloy knife before, and all I can say is...wow. The factory edge seems to be hand finished and has quite a bit of bevel, giving a sharp and sturdy edge. As for the sharpness, all I can say is, I got a piece of paper, did some slice testing with my 110, this knife, and a Chineese Kershaw. The Kershaw could bearly cut paper without tearing it. The 110 did better, but still didn't cut that clean. This knife...with the S20v blade...wow. It cuts like a razor. Be careful with this knife. The blade is sharp beyond description, and the action is so smooth that closing the knife is too easy sometimes. It would be very easy to cut your fingers when the blade isn't in the full lock position. I can't wait to get a deer this year and really try this knife out.
