Not sharp enough
It's not a bad knife, but only if there was a big retail and you got it for 20-25€.
I like the weight of the knife, the flipper is smooth, I like the size of the handle and the shape of the blade.
The lock could be a bit harder though, especially for a so called "tactical knife". But I don't think I'll ever cut something sturdier than cardboard with it, because food is a no go : thumbstuds are a pain in the ass on nearly every folding knife when it comes to cutting food, and so is it on the KAL-18. I also fear that these thumbstuds prevent a correct sharpening of the base of the blade, too, and that is way more important...
But the worst thing for me just now after unboxing is clearly the lack of sharpness. And with no sharpening angle info anywhere...
