Fragile inlay, beatiful knife.
Fantastic knife or sure. Beautiful and lightweight, but beware, should you need to remove the inlay for any reason, you should know that it is very fragile. I found out the hard way when it became necessary to clean out some oil which made it's way underneath it. Snapped in two pieces within seconds under very little pressure. Now it's gonna have to go back to BM for repairs.

I kinda wish they would've used a more durable material for this part of the knife. This issue really is the only black mark I can give this review, which is why I can only give it 4 stars.

Very nice knife and good price for this level

This is the first decent knife I have bought in a long time. I used to collect benchmade and other various makers along with several custom made knives. Well I sold everything a long time ago and walked away from knives for good or so I thought lol. I saw this one pop up on the going gear site. When I saw it i had that I have to have it feeling come over me and got one. I have to say over all its a great knife good steel holds an edge very nice and as always razor sharp. It is on the light side but still feels good in the hand and the inlays and red sapacers and thumb stud are beautiful in person. Well thanks going gear for suckering me back into the knife game.
