    Keone does some killer work. I've had 2 of his pieces in the past:

    I've seen others complain about working with him, but he was a pleasure in my dealing with him, and the turnaround was super quick. I did a review of my pieces here a while back.

    It's been a crazy week but I didn't want to skip over my Tanto Tuesday shot. It's only 3 days old. :)

    What do you think of the Gerber? I like the looks of it, but I'm not Gerber's biggest fan.

    I had a few issues dealing with Mr Keone but he came through in the end and I'm very pleased.....enough so that I quickly purchased a few beads

    I'm not a Gerber fan at all. I don't know why a _knife_ company as big as Gerber doesn't put more effort into the quality of their products is beyond me. Companies like KAI with their Kershaw brand are running circles around them in regards to quality. And now that Reate, a Chinese company, are producing such a high-quality knife there's no excuse to having crappy Chinese knives anymore.

    However, this specific knife is modeled after their old 06 Auto which was one of their best knives (an easy task when you only have one or two good knives). I wanted black and since I have a ton of knives already with good steel I wanted to see how their 420HC held up. Spoiler alert, it doesn't. I absolutely love the knife, though. The blade is assisted and flies out very quickly and the thumb button locking mechanism is very nice. I would definitely buy this knife again but i would pick the Downrange model which has an S30V blade and then use RIT to dye the scales black. The G-10 is VERY grippy so I only carry it with jeans and definitely not my khakis. And I hate serrations but I actually enjoyed them on this knife. I got it specifically for hard-use tasks and the serrations have helped more than I thought they would. If it helps, this is one of their USA made knives and comes with a lifetime warranty just like all of their knives do. Before I got this one, I got their Instant (which is where I fell in love with the thumb-button lock) and I really liked the ergos of that one and enjoyed carrying it despite the really horrible blade steel. I had a lot of problems with that knife, though, and their warranty department bent over backwards to help me, including sending me a brand new Instant (which I still have in the packaging, lol).

    Long story short, the knife would be on my absolute favorites list if I had picked one with better steel.
