Pros: Lock Type, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Pocket Clip, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Too large for a true gentlemen's knife. If a trim in size were made, the weight trim could then be used for a pocket clip. This knife NEEDS a pocket clip!Using the thumb stud to open the knife to the completely locked position is almost impossible. With a great deal of practice I only accomplished this a couple of times. It seems that a little pressure needed to hold the knife squeezes the scales together too tightly to accomplish a complete flip open to lock position. NOT GOOD at all. On the plus side, this is a beautiful knife . Just is not designed to function correctly. Maybe an inside torsion bar for assisted opening would make this knife a much better design (and as stated, a reduction in size). Poor rating!
