I've had one for about 1½ years. Had to send it in for repair, but it came back within 2 weeks. The little retaining pin on the blade came off. I used to slap the thing open pretty hard. If you do that enough, the portions of the liner that stop blade travel get compressed slightly. Now, the liner lock goes all the way across. There isn't any play yet, but the blade has a very pronounced divergence from being parallel with the handle. Not only are the liners too thin, the steel is way too soft to stand up in the long run. I'm sure Fiskars could replace the liners, but I don't use it anymore.
I'd like to have the $95 I paid for it back. The knife is cool, but it's not worth half what it costs, IMO.
