This knife is stunning looking. It has a commanding presence. When I deploy the blade it has a crisp snap like no other knife; reminds me of the pleasure of going shooting and pulling the trigger. This knife will be noticed and if you show it off, it will be intimidating to a layperson. I owned this knife and lost it. I love it so much I repurchased it. It is worth every penny is a great investment and addition to any high end knife collection.
