A very widely used EDC steel, AUS-8 can take a very nice edge while also maintaining moderate edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
I use the knife as a money clip, and also for small jobs. It is well constructed, and just the right size for most small jobs

Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
A perfectly utilitarian knife that fits into a front pocket without taking up too much space. Clearly it has specific limitations in terms of uses but it does strike a great balance between "taking up little space" and "having a sharp blade handy." It takes a bit of practice to open and lock the blade, and then to unlock the blade and put it away in a swift and efficient fashion but once you've mastered the process you'll like the smoothness of the action.

Not a good EDC
I'm using this on my key chain but I'm looking for a replacement now after using it for about a year. Using it to open letters is awkward. The blade is too short to do slicing cuts. So sharpen it up sharper than it came from the factory and do a push cut, but the paper gets caught up on the thumb stud. Cutting small rope or twine seemed difficult because of the blade shape, had to make many passes and dulls quickly. You can get a fine edge on the blade, but it won't hold. For heavier cutting tasks like a box the blade dulled after one pass and subsequent cuts were difficult. This leads to the next problem. When cutting gets difficult, the handle is uncomfortable on the hand. Lastly, the AUS 8 steel isn't very corrosion resistant. Mine developed rust after only a couple weeks use from carrying in my pocket. Wish this was made in more options with choice of blade steel and handle materials. VG-10 blade steel would be a good start. Even with titanium and G-10, 2.5 ounces is heavy for its size. But then, again, the ergonomics of the thing are not good, so it doesn't matter.
