Columbia River Ken Onion Eros Gentleman's Folder 3" Blade
I use this knife as an everyday pocket blade. Extremely easy to open and close one handed. So light to carry as well. Love the feel and finish of the product as well. Love dealing with knifecenter as well. Highly recommened.

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use
This is my second Eros because I lost the first and was devastated when it came up missing. The mechanism for opening, although mechanical is very similiar to a spring assisted auto. One detail to watch is that some of the knives will not lock out completely and you could run the risk of severe damage to your digits.This is an easy fix if you are mechanically inclined. Hopefully Ken Onion has been notified and is fixing the issue. I took off the clip because it is nuisance to me and I don't like hooking to my pocket. Despite that it is n ecellent knife and collectors piece.
