Love the blade shape and can choke it all the way up due to that finger cut out on the blade. False edge on-top of the blade to give an all around sharp edge type of dagger appearance. Not really any major hots spots in the hand, nothing sharp, smooth jimping, smooth overall finish. Ball being Flipper: Flips open & closes with ease and authority Liner-lock: very good lock up Detent: strong enough - can boarder line gravity flips open wth applied force & flick. Easy to close with one hand, however no ramping on the bottom of the knife steel where the detent ball meets. Thus is a little stiff, but one can easily 'one handed' fold close the blade Internal SS liners are hidden from view. (nicely done) G10 Handle material is real Good looking knife overall thats ECD for tactical or every day use. (Blade shape could be a little intimidating for public use)
CONS
Blade Steel: Not real D2 but 410/20 stainless! low siting clip makes the knife sit higher up in the pocket (however this is the exact same as the authentic) Bigger and heavier than it looks in pics! (If you don't mind pocket carrying a heavier knife its a non issue)
Good Copy knife for the Price but....the Blade Steel is Not real D2 steel by a long shot! Test have been done and the blade steel for this knife is actually closer to 410/20 stainless steel, which is far from being near D2! (This has ben confirmed online by a member of the knife clone collector community after test were done on a whole batch of various Chinese made copied knives including this one!) However at this current price of $24.29 - the knife is still well worth it, specially as it comes with the proprietary pivot/screw shaped tool driver - which I have seen sell online for $20 or more. So, if you have always wanted this knife but could not afford the authentic or just don't want to splash out, and you don't mind the 410/20 stainless blade, I recommend you pick this one up. You will not be disappointed! However if you are after a similar priced "Real D2" blade steal knife w/ Ball Bering flipper, Liner lock, SS liners with real G10 Handles then I suggest you go for one of the various made CH knives sold here on fasttech for around $23 or less with Code MAP: https://www.fasttech.com/search?CH%20knives%20D2%20knives

Good Flavour but will be to rich for some and not to everyones liking. Can have hight pitched tasting tones so does benefit from longer stepping with the lid off for a week to oxygenate and calm it down 2 to 3 weeks step or longer and this will shine!

Tones of Belgium Biscuit with a very slight hint of strawberry on the exhale. A nice satisfying flavour overall, not to rich nor to sweet, just right! I like this a lot and will be buying more at this price!

Can easily fit in 2x EVGA 1600W PSU's Fits gigabyte B250-FinTech & Biostar TB250 ATX mining Motherboards perfectly (nice long hex screws to raise board up) Will pretty much fit on any 120mm computer cooling fans Plenty of room to work with and could easily add 8x GPU's if one wanted to. Everything came with & nothing missing Comes with tools Come with plenty of screws etc Plenty of youtube tutorials on how to assemble the frame and the 120mm fans. Helps to achieve better cable management Looks good and clean
CONS
Will likely take the uninitiated a good hour or more to assemble Express Shipping 'only' which is a bit expensive due to the overall weight Mining profits are down :(
I really like this fame and was a much needed upgrade from my last GPU mining rig frame that was a lot smaller in size. Easy to add on my 120mm Aigo AURORA C5 Cooling Fan Kit (SKU 9624948) which I have added 'back to front' to help suck the heat off the cards (if you do not already have 120mm fans and don't care for RGB lights I would recommend the more powerful VEDDHA 2500 RPM fans SKU 9643318) Everything came, nothing missing & no issues! A overall pleasurable & satisfying experience building and assembling this rig! Comes highly recommend to amateur & pro miner's alike.

Two weak little fans
This is more of a novelty item as its just not powerful enough to bring temps down more than 1 to 2 degrees Celsius while siting underneath a laptop. For the price its okay I suppose and does hold a laptop up from sitting flat on a table, specially if you have a decent fan close by to blow through! Can no use this on your lap.
