Just look at this thing. It's as awesome as it looks in the pictures. Black bone handle scales meet precisely with the mirror polished stainless steel bolster and pommel. The sparse linear engraving give it an art deco look. The dagger style, single edged blade is made of 440C high carbon steel. For those of you not familiar with steel, 440C is pretty hard and therefore can hold a wickedly sharp edge for a long time. Yet it's not so hard that you can't easily sharpen it on your own using a whetstone. It's also far more resistant to rusting than Damascus (pattern welded) steel.
The handle spine has really nice decorative brass filework. There's also some decorative filework jimping on the spine of the blade, which helps secure a good grip. The blade can be easily opened using the thumb stud at the base of the blade (one handed if you wish). Once open the blade is securely locked in place using a liner lock type. Disengaging the lock requires only that you push the liner lock bar to the side. Then you can safely and easily return the blade to the closed position.
The only drawback is the lack of a pocket clip. However, it does come with a decent leather sheath that accommodates the knife well. The sheath has a leather strap riveted to it's backside so that it can be worn on a belt.
