I've carried this knife on me every day for over a year now and have not had any problems with it. It hold a very slim profile in my jeans front pocket and is no problem carrying around; even though it is still considered a large pocket knife to many. The locking mechanism is so sturdy, it feels like a fixed blade. Its razor sharp and holds its edge well. The black finish can scratch off with time, but hasn't bothered me. It has a great natural contour in your hand. I definitely recommend this knife.
