    Fantastic high-end EDC!

    Posted by Jakob on Jun 11th 2016

    First off, the folks here at Cutlery Shoppe are amazing. Quality service! Ordered the night late Wednesday night, shipped Thursday morning, and was here on Saturday! And what a knife it is... I was worried that the aluminum handle scales would be slick, but they provide enough traction to do any cutting task you need. Speaking of cutting, the blade comes hair shaving, razor sharp out of the box; and is perfectly centered. The action is smooth, and the assisted opening mechanism requires just enough pressure on the flipper that I feel totally comfortable putting the knife in my pocket without engaging the safety. If you love Benchmade, you're love this knife. Perfect for slicing, and a wicked sharp tip, the Amicus is the perfect (though pricey) high-end EDC/Gentleman's folding knife. It is functional, smooth, and elegant, made from premium materials that I bet will last a lifetime! You get what you pay for!
