Cons: Handle Feel, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Nice assist action...EDC...Good size and weight.
I bought this as a Christmas gift and found the locking slider was a bit rough in it's function. Once fully unlocked, the assist works like a charm. Very nice feel and size. Handle sides are plastic and I would have preferred a non-slip rubberized material. Also the Valox handles sound hollow (a little cheap sounding for a knife of this cost). Overall a nice EDC.

Great knife overall
The first thing I really enjoy about this knife is the ease of use. The assisted opening has a quick response and the Axis lock is always a plus. I also like how you can lock the blade in the open position which prevents any accidental pressure on the Axis lock lever which will unlock the blade prematurely. The sharpness of the blade is everything to be expected. As with most reviews I have seen on this knife, the handle leaves a little to be desired. The "cheap" feel of the plastic doesn't leave you with much reassurance that it will hold up during any kind of shock. Overall, it's a great knife. If you are looking for something that is quick on the draw and will cut through just about anything while retaining an edge, this knife will serve you well.

Fantastic EDC
This is my EDC and I use it for everything from cutting open boxes to hacking back stray pricker bush branches up to 1/2" while walking around my property . I have been using it for over a year now and it's held up well. Blade holds a nice edge through a good amount of use and the black coating on the blade is barely worn down. I do agree with the other two reviewers that the handle material is not the best. Handed mine to a friend and told him to use the spine to tap a bolt into a slightly too tight hole. He used the handle area instead. First tap, and bam!!! Found out the handles are hollow. I needed to send it in for repairs anyway. Reason for repairs were the handle cracking and the springs that hold the locking stud in it's upright position failed. This caused unintentional openings and closings (my index finger has a new scar to prove the latter). Sent it in for repairs and got it back ASAP and as good as new. Looking foward to purchasing the new Contego, but if you don't want to spend that much dough this is the best EDC for the money!!!
