Fast is fine but accuracy is final. You must learn to be slow in a hurry!

I had the MKII and I thought it was an awesome knife kept a sharp edge for a long time ( I used it as a work knife so it was used and abused ) I did eventually break the tip but overall good knife ( my opinion) lasted me 2 years
