Cons: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip
Good for a cheap, small knife.
For it's genre this is a very usable knife, as in just something small to stick in your pocket and not worry about. At under $20 it's not concerning if I lose this knife or it gets damaged or anything. With that said there really aren't too many good things about this knife. When I purchased it the tip was basically blunt, and the blade wasn't all that sharp out of box. Not cool. the tiny oval shaped deployment hole means the knife cannot be snapped open, it has to be guided open, which isn't really too bad but can be seen as a con. The lock is one of the worst things about the knife. It's a framelock, so it's very strong and reliable, but the framelock on my knife is extremely stiff. It makes it difficult to close the knife and I basically have to get under it with my thumbnail to release the framelock. When I was carrying this knife my right hand thumbnail actually broke down as a result of closing this knife so many times. The pocket clip is another con. It's a pretty loose clip, less tension than even a paper clip. The knife just kind of slides over your pocket but there's no retention. Another weird thing about this knife is that there is sort of a spike/protrusion on the top of the blade when the knife is closed. It's a dull spike, but when I reached into my pocket to grab this knife the first time I thought it had come open in my pocket, because my hand hit that little spike. So that also makes it a little uncomfortable to carry daily. Overall, it really isn't a bad knife despite all those cons. Considering it's price, it's really up to you whether you want to carry it. I bought it just for a small cheap knife that was legal to carry on my college campus, but there definitely are some kind of lame things about this knife.
