So this knife was just 3 hrs from my door on the 3rd, but USPS and Canada Post had other plans, sent it on a long journey finally arriving today? Anyways on to the knife, it certainly feels like a tank compared to my carry as of late, Enigma Classic but I expected as much comparing build materials. Now after my Northwoods ED Barlow made by queen I had decided Queen made knives weren't for me. (It wasn't terrible but not really good either, with some work I can and do use it from time to time) BUT, something about caplifters I guess, plus S30v and of course nice covers and the brass bolsters all combined convinced me to give it a shot. The knife is well built, solid with no play. Transitions are smooth and springs are flush open and closed. Pull is medium and feels right for the size. The wood isn't polished as much as I expected but I prefer it like this, I usually take some fine steel wool to take off some of the shine on a new knife anyway. Now the grinds appear rushed or done by someone inexperienced. I won't pick it apart bit by bit but hmmm. It was also the dullest out of box/tube of any knife I own. Took an hour to get her useable. Probably take 2 more sharpenings to get it the way I like, (I'm not patient enough to do that much sharpening work on a knife at once. I like to throw in in my pocket and put it to work right away). Actually I typically use the factory edge until it gets dull then give a good sharpening. Unless I just wanted it for spreading butter however, I had no choice. I was a bit worried about how the high sitting caplifter would feel using the blade but it's actually quite comfortable. It does takeaway from the ergos of the gunstock handle shape a bit however. I think this knife will get quite a bit of pocket time and use. Can't think of anything else to add right now so I'll leave it at this and edit in a few days if I think of something.
