This beast is my go to big folding knife. The blade is thick with a sturdy tip, but it still takes a great edge and isn't unbearably heavy, even clipped to a pocket.
Never had a knife of this quality (or expense) before, and it's definitely worth it (for me). Basically, it just works, and keeps on working. Super sharp, right out of the box, and really holds an edge. Great blade shape that's been useful in many situations and for a wide variety of tasks. Others have commented on the harsh handle shape; I find it fits my large hands well and is extremely "grippy". Great locking mechanism that is very easy and lightning fast to open and close, and rock solid and secure when locked. The black pocket clip that came with it wore badly; Benchmade replaced it quickly and for free, albeit with one with a bright finish. After a year of hard use in the woods, the garden, and the shop, living almost every day in my pocket, it's showing very little wear. Definitely my favorite for EDC in almost every situation.
