Would have gotten 5 stars...
I wanted to get my wife a knife for EDC since she always seems to need one. I knew I wanted to get her something of high quality, which narrowed it down to benchmade and spyderco. I picked the benchmade because on several forums the mini grip seems to be a must have knife. This is a very nice knife. It is the perfect size for her, and once I showed her how to flip it open and close it via the axis lock she was doing it with ease. She loved the knife. Everything about this knife was perfect, save one thing; it was not very sharp. Now, I'm not saying it was dull- I could shave with it out of the box, but it took quite about of effort/pressure. I have recently bought a few Buck 110s recently, which are almost a third in price to this, and also made in USA. They came MUCH sharper than this knife. In a competitive market like this, benchmade should be setting a standard when it comes to things like this, especially at a higher than average price point. If it would have been sharper, this knife would have gotten 5 stars.
