The linear lock is grinding against the blade near the axis and its causing is to screech when I open or close the knife. Other than that its a fantastic knife for the price.
Use the knife as my everyday pocket knife. It has withstood all forms of abuse and i have not had to sharpen the blade afeter 6 months of frequent use and it will still take the hair off of my arm. Honestly i use it in ways that it really shouln't be and it takes and keeps on keepin on. Great knife.
Great for outdoor use, cutting thick rope or small branches. Good looking black finish.
