Usually don't buy knives of 440A, but the design was so beautiful, and I love the cocobolo/stainless combo (handsome combo on grips/handguns, too). For this price you are not too disappointed if you lose it, or if it breaks. Pretty sharp from the box, takes an edge exceptionally well (keep the sharpener handy). Best ergonomic grip of any micro knife I've ever handled. Will make a great EDC/box cutter/knock-about knife to save metal on my good blades. I bought 2 more to give as gifts. It's a "Buy It" from me.
