    OOS and I'm glad. People wasting their money on Chinese knives with inconsistent steel deserve what they get. And shame on CRKT for not being upfront about where this knife was made. It took me 20 mins of digging to find out.

    ^ 8Cr13MoV is a Chinese steel. AFAIK nobody has ever seen a knife with this steel that wasn't made in China.

    However, 8Cr13MoV is quite good for a budget knife. It's better than Buck's 420 or all the other 440 variants made in the US. What then remains is manufacturing tolerances which are also good on major brand knives.

    Granted you may need to lube it with a drop of oil when new, adjust the pivot bolt to your desired tightness, but the same is true of any knife.

    Then again I'm not so sure that it matters. This looks more like budget collectors knife. It's too big and heavy for EDC for what it is functionality wise (and the 3.9" blade could cause it to be considered an illegal weapon in many areas of the US) and too quirky with crevices and lack of grip to be a good regular use field knife. At 10 oz it's quite heavy to have the concession of being a folder rather than fixed blade, and imbalanced.

    The cocobolo handle seems to be the only justification for it being a >$35 knife before it hit Woot, again making me think "display knife" rather than competitive with other $35 knives for real world use.
