Rated 3 out of 5 by RidersDad Decent - but nothing special
The knife was not very sharp out of the box - there is no easy way to deploy the blade - quality materials used throughout - a bit too thin, and too long for my personal taste (not a surprise - dimensions were not a surprise) - locking mechanism is superb - pocket clip tension is very good - combo blade proportions are very good - a little pricey compared to other options

Rated 4 out of 5 by MMonk Wish it was not serrated
Very strong for such a lightweight knife, making it a great backpacking tool. I would have given it five stars except I just didn't like how the blade was partially serrated. If ll bean sold the fully plain edge version I would definitely buy it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MDoffroad Great quality but felt like a toy....
I bought this as a way to use a $100 gift card. I figured, why not? I have always bought $50 knives, lets see what $100 gets! Well, the blade is sharp as all get out. The knife was well made, but, in my hands, it was so light it felt like a toy. There needs to be weight ratings on ALL knives sold by Bean. I ended up sending mine back and going with a more familiar Gerber that had some heft to it.
