After 4 years, still like new.
I am an electrician, and work in a foundry, which means my tools are subject to a lot of sand, heavy dust, and countless other gritty, abrasive materials. I constantly have to clean/lubricate all of my stuff, just so they function properly. Well, even under conditions that could be considered neglect or abuse, this knife has never let me down. The amount of play when blade is open is minimal at most. Even though the eccentric on the locking cam has rounded slightly over time, there is still a feel of a positive lock, that definitely inspires confidence. I fully expect another 4-5 years of reliable service. This model was kept simple. And we all know the saying about fixing things that aren’t broken. Excellent tool.

Just one minor tweak and it would be perfect
I use this knife almost everyday. I’ve owned most of the fastback folding utility knife versions and this one is by far my favorite. The pocket clip is much stronger on this version than the others. And it’s less bulky than the one with onboard blade storage. Also most utility blades are already two sided I never had a need to change one out while not near my stack of 100.

The only improvement I would make would be to flatten out the end and add a small piece of metal. You wouldn’t believe how often I end up using this knife as a hammer, to pound small nails or restart a computer.
