Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
After many years of trying different knives, I have decided that the K55 is the best (IMO) for EDC use. Where else can you get a strong, durable, all-steel knife with an excellent 3 1/2 in. locking blade, which is easy to open and close, is beautiful to look at and feels great in the hand, and can be dropped into a front pocket and essentially disappear? For a time it's been a toss-up between the K55 and a small sebenza micarta, but the K55 has finally won out, because so many things about it are "just right". The fact that it has been around for 150 yrs. just adds to the appeal.
