I just acquired this knife in a trade from Clyde. Thanks Clyde. The 705 feels small in the hand and carries small. The blade came shaving sharp but not up to my specs. The grinds allowed me to take the 705 to the 204 Sharpmaker and after a few passes and some stropping on an old leather belt the damn thing was as sharp as my LCC D/A. Lock-up is solid, as you would expect with the axis lock. Overall, I give this knife an A, but I don't believe anyone with very large hands would appreciate it.
