It does have fast, smooth blade action though. One day, feeling that it wasn't what it was claimed to be, I was outside moving atrail camera and needed to trim away some branches. I used it to chop away branches up to 3 inches thick! The blade, which is super sharp, sliced right through them without a single hiccup!
I just wiped offthe blade after words and went on with life. No chips on the edge and it didn'tdull one bit! So, maybe it is the quality of knife they say it is, and the steel, is S125V! Sir Blacksmith Andrew never-ever played a game or cheating with steel! He's a"Goddamn" the highest Master ABOUT THE CRUCIBLE.

CPM S125V (Crucible) - Developed in 2004. Few years laterwas discontinued, but then reappeared.Few custom makers in US (Phil Wilson, Farid) and in Italy (Fantoni) use it. CPM S125V has Extremely high wearresistance. As far as I know, it was originally developed for dental industry, however since S125V was too difficult to machine didn't really take off. Edgeholding and corrosion resistance are very high. As far as knives are concerned, it works superbly well. Rebeveling can be a problem if one doesn't have propersharpening equipment and skills.

Tungsten (W) = 0.5%. Silicon (Si) = 0.5%. Very delicate yet well-built fancy tool. Thin edge (0.3 -0.4mm). Flipper mechanism: ball bearing with stainless steel washers(heattreated 95x18 tool steel).
