For christmas I was lucky enough to receive the HARPY I wanted with VG-10 handle and blade. The lock up is solid, everything fits perfectly tight, I cannot commend spyderco enough on the construction of this knife. It's just a pleasure to own and it is rock solid, worth every penny. I have definitely become a spyderco fan now. No real reason for this thread, just wanted to say I LOVE SPYDERCO!!!
