After receiving shipment of this knife I am pleased to have spent the extra bucks to move up from the Troodon to the Troodon Hellhound .This is one fantastic looking blade. Overall the fit and finish of this knife is excellent. I believe that I made the right choice. This knife is lightweight,strong,and has a very fast action.It locks up tight. There is no real wiggle or play in this knife new out of the box. I like it so much that I am interested in buying another Microtech knife,hopefully in the near future. The Troodon Hellhound is a Grandslam form Microtec IMHO. The Micro-tech knife's are higher priced than comparable knives on the market,but they may just be worth the extra cash. Only Time ,and Use will tell.
