Default Benchmade 818 Mini Loco

Just arrived today. I'm by no means a knife expert but man I've had a bunch of $30-60 craptastic knives that I didn't care if I lost including my last Kershaw which was imported, couldn't hold an edge and sharpening did nothing.

Decided to upgrade to the Benchmade 818 Mini Loco, a new and smaller version of the 808 Loco.

Specs:
CPM-S30V Stainless Steel (58-60HRC)
Blade Length: 3.38" (8.59cm)
Blade Thickness: 0.145" (3.68mm)
Open Length: 7.62" (19.34cm)
Closed Length: 4.38" (11.13cm)
Handle Thickness: 0.59" (14.99mm)
Weight: 4.47oz. (126.72g)
Handle Material: G10

Action is buttery smooth. Even though it's the mini version, I wouldn't call it a lightweight, small pocketknife by any means. It's got a good heft to it but not so much as to prevent EDC. Price is around $190, not cheap but after my previous experiences with cheap knives, let's see how the buy once, cry once philosophy pans out.
