This would have been the perfect gift for Father's day (except that mine is gone).

440A isn't one of the top, "in", steels and my first thought was this looks cool but is junk. But I searched a bit and 440A is a solid economy choice. E.g: Knife Steel FAQ (at http://zknives.com/knives/articles/knifesteelfaq.shtml#440A) says it's fine for everyday use and has good rust resistance. SOG's heat treatment of 440A is specifically called out as well done.

Edit: fix link. (Why doesn't the Woot markup work here?)

I just received my order and the effects, reel & clicker, are cool. For $13, I'm glad I got one. However, this won't get carried or used. The decorative bits would catch on pockets & bags and I'd choose to carry a simpler, more functional knife when I carry one.
