I'd put it up against ANY knife or machete. I truly dont believe theres a better one out there.edit on 4-1-2011 by captaintyinknots because: (no reason given)

not if your looking at a Bowie Knife, knives, then that is the best all around knife, but good luck finding one under a 100$ usd with sheath and stones. an other good one is the Arkansas tooth pick.

I agree that a fixed blade is better but they're pretty expensive for one made with good steel. The blade lock on that knife is amazing. I was pretty surprised when I got it. It doesn't wiggle or move at all. It takes all my thumb strength to get it to disengage.
As for speed, it has a pocket catch on it. So as soon as you pull it out of your pocket it opens. You can see him use the pocket catch in the video.
