The Spectrum is by no means a POS.
It has aircraft aluminum handles, AUS8A blade (which can be sharpened to a razor edge),opens with ease, passes the "whack test" and does a pretty good job at cutting and edgeholding.
There are not to many other knives that are this light,durable,and nice looking for around $35.
It is not a heavy duty knife, but is was not made for this purpose. As a lightweight, light use knife you might want to check it out.
