This IS my first steel toy: I did read all the concerns about its not being stainless
steel before purchasing, but since it is still a nickel-free, good-quality steel (and was at a great sale price) I ordered it, and I love it! The look, feel, and fuinctions are all great. The only issue I have is the button needing to be pressed really hard to power on and change functions. Can anyone tell me if they've had this issue?
