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.

Pros:
Cons:
Great knife with some issues
PROS: Great Micro / small EDC. Thin and light, carries well in pocket (I kept the clip on it but don't use it). I have many larger EDC knives but this one is good when you want a knife for the office or really a small EDC. Great grip for small knife. Would make a good money clip as well. CONS: The blade loses and edge quickly and is difficult to put a fine edge on again. (I just can't get it that sharp again.... Difficult to sharpen given length and blade shape. (I don't have this issue with other knives). Also, I wish this knife had a slightly sharper / more pointy tip. Often, the kind of tasks you use a micro EDC blade for require a sharp tip and this knife fails in that area. All that said, I still like it more than other very small knifes I have had for pocket carry.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Blade Material, Overall Quality, None
Fine example of the falacy of German engineering
I work with a bunch of prima donnas who whimper when I pull I knife, then they come running to me when they need something cut. So I figured this was non- threatening enough for work. I know that Aus 8 is basically 440C made outside the U.S. and thought it would be fine, I was very wrong. After 4 days on the job the blade was rusted over, and that's with me polishing it with WD-40. I expect more than 4 days of use from a $43 knife. Initial quality appeared to be high and the blade let it perform like a larger knife, but just like a BMW it cost a lot for what you get, and it didn't live up to its potential.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, None
Great Subcompact Knife
A fantastic subcompact knife. Feels great in the hand despite being so small, and preforms like a knife twice its size just as advertised. Im a fan of Aus 8 steel, not a premium quality but what do you expect for a knife this price? The only downsides of this knife are that its pocket clip is too tight against the side of the knife, and the knife is a bit of a pain to open up, although these problems will likely fix themselves as the knife loosens up while i break it in. Overall a very good knife. Worth the money for sure.
