While I realize the tendency is to regulate price with quality, in the case of Buck, I find that theory lacking. I have carried a Buck 110 for 35 years, and never once has it let me down. I admire the companys dedication to USA made, and their customer service has never let me down. I find that after befriending this blade for so long, one hand opening comes as natural as a flick of the wrist. I dont know much about the exact blade you purchased, but wish you as much luck as I have had with my humble 110.

Well, I've had it in my pocket for a few days now. I'll say it's certainly a $20 knife. It's way better than the one I had before, but not as nice as some others I've seen (which also cost way more).
Opens nice and quick
I find the pocket clip to be pretty sturdy and it hasn't really cut into my pants
It's just the right size for me. I can't carry a huge hunk of metal in my pocket... I like slim and trim
The lock switch is a bit stiff -- I hope this resolves itself with use; over time
The blade did not come real sharp -- don't get me wrong, it'll take off your finger if you use it wrong, but it wasn't real impressive on the "paper test."
The plastic handle seems a little on the cheap side, but hey, it's a $20 knife, right?
Anyway, overall, I'm happy with it. It's a good little utility knife which I've used for many, many things, already.
