It's been....a mixed bag. The blade is good. Relatively easy to sharpen and a useful blade shape. The walk and talk on the mechanism is so so, not very snappy at all. I like the handle, I think it is mainly that I might not be super big on the slip joints. My D2 mini grip ends up in my pocket 90 percent of the time, so this one has sort of been relegated to more formal dress occasions. I've cut more cigar ends with it than anything else lol.
