I didn’t know anything about Mr. Blade steel before this purchase. I own some decent stuff, custom and other premiums, and this knife feels good in my large hand. Awesome action and appearance. Finish and quality feel significantly more expensive than what I paid. Every bit the equal of some $200 Benchmades I’ve bought, probably better. The blade will shave hair. Being D2, time will tell on edge retention. The G10 is really well done, and I’m not a big G10 fan. Bottom line...killer deal.
