I have several on order and can't wait to get them. Be sure to post a review when you get it.
I really like the EDI knives and A-2 is my current favorite steel. A-2 is tough, sharpens easily, and will take and hold a scary sharp edge in a pocket folder. The coating used will mean the only potential rust spot would be on the cutting edge which will be in contact with the material being cut and any sharpening tools used so, doesn't seem to be a maintainance concern with regards to rust unless neglected for really long periods.
The Mission A-2 "Steelcoat" fixed blades I have are superficially constructed the same way and, initial usuage seems to be proving that knife is a good combination of the right stuff as the I'm sure the A-2 EDI will.
