The problem with these knives is the AUS 6 steel that CRKT likes so much... The steel can take a wicked edge - but cant hold it for very long. AUS 8 is much better.
If you like the idea of a good knife that is cheap - check out GIGAND knives. You will be amazed. The TOP of the Gigand line is only 60 bucks while most are between 30 and 35 for the folders. Even less for the fixed. I have liked every Gigand I have seen.
