Chris Reeve Knives

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
This is one of the most beautiful knives I own. The quality, fit and finish is perfect. Excellent balance and design. The clip is made is made to hold this knife securely but allows a smooth removal from the pocket.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, None
Not the expected quality
Not pleased with my purchase. When the blade is closed, it is not aligned = the blade and the titanium are "robbing". Within this range price, I expect a perfect product. And this is not the case.
