Lock fails quite easily and protrudes above handle, where it can be accidentally disengaged. It came with the lock spring pin protruding from the handle. Not a comfortable grip for any sustained or hard work. The blade was wobbly. The edge, out-of-the-box, would not slice paper, and appears to have a slightly off-center grind. Definitely would not recommend this knife, but gave it a "2" instead of a "1" just for the blade material (1095 steel).
