Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Weight
Ok,but too bulky for edc.
The "Beast" is a very large,and bulky folder.Because of it's size most will not carry this around.It's simply too bulky,and takes up 90% of pocket..As far as the steel,handles,and liner,i really dont have much of a problem.Sure,the liners could be thicker,but there ok.Unless you try one of the ignorant maneuver's on those videos you've seen,the liner is plenty strong enough..The thumhole is easy to manuever.The flipper action is slow,but that's because of blade weight.It works,but is nowhere near as smooth as a CRKT folder..I dont see how someone could cut their finger with this knife,because the flipper also serves as a finger guard,but when people try to immulate maneuvers done on those cheesy/dangerous/ignorant videos,anything's possible..The one thing people SHOULD pay attention to,BEFORE watching those videos,is the Disclaimer:Do NOT try this at home..Because if you do,or if you handle this knife in an unsafe manner,you will have a hospital bill,that will be a helluva lot more than this folder cost you..Be careful,and Do NOT use a knife for anything other than cutting and/or slicing..What are you trying to accomplish by stabbing a oil drum,or car hood??.A screwdriver will do the same thing,and costs $5...
