    These knives are CRAZY sharp. Wouldn't take much to slice some flesh.:( I let our secretary use my Take today and she was amazed at how nice it was and how sharp also.:D

    You won't go wrong with any of the three, depends on what your preference is though.

    Not sure which Mcusta is on your mind, but the A II is a great smaller edc.

    You got that right. I've got a bald spot on my arm just from lightly testing the edge.

    I love mine, but it did develop an issue like KAMM's. After using playing with it for a while the "action" began to feel rough. So I did what KAMM did...took it apart. I found that the rough cut on the back side of the scales was really dusty and think that might have played a role. It felt gritty when I opened/closed it. Not at first, but after I used it a while. So I took it completely apart and cleaned it up(by rubbing the dust off with my hand, then I sprayed Moly Dry Film on it, blew it dry and put it back together. Oh, I also left the main screw a little looser and bent the liner lock the opposite direction to make it easier to operate.
    Overall, it took about ten minutes and it works better than ever know. Slicker than snot on a doorknob:D Had it not gotten dust in it I would have left it alone

    After reading some google searches I think the "dust" is actually suppose to be the lube they use. Everyone that has had a problem with a gritty feel does exactly what you did SAK and breaks the knife down, cleans it and use something like TUFglide. Might have to do that to mine just to see if mine have the "dust" in them also.

    I guess it's better than something else on a door knob. He is a plumber after all.
