Good for the money but could be better.
Ordered this more as a test of this website's functioning. It's a nice enough knife, though I can't give it more that a 3.5. The reason it does get the 3.5 is the price. At under Rs.1000, it is a decent looking and very carryable knife that came reasonably sharp out of the box. Not as sharp as I will make it shortly, but sharper than a lot of more expensive blades. However, while the scales, liner's and back springs seem to line up alright, the centering of the blades is off. The spey blade is slightly off center and the drop point almost scrapes the outside liner apart from having a fair bit of blade play. I would demand a replacement, but there is no guarantee that the problems are only with this knife. Remains to be seen what Knifeindia/Windlass do about it. The non-specific 440 steel is good for the price but edge taking and retention remain to be tested. So does usability and long term build quality. Still have to say kudos to Windlass and knifeindia.com for making and making available a better class of knife domestically.
