Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Like a best friend
I bought this knife from knifecenter a year or so ago, at the recommendation of my brother. He loves his. At first sight, I was unsure about its not having a lock, but I was immediately surprised (and relieved) at the strength of the entire knife. The slip-joint HOLDS the blade both open and closed with AUTHORITY. The handle is a very solid, and fairly thick, single piece of steel. I have no worries whatsoever that it will close on my hand unexpectedly, and it will be impossible for it to accidentally open in-pocket. As for the blade itself, I have no explanation for just how sharp it gets. Its edge is terrifying. In fact, I shave with it once in a while just to say I did it. In short, this knife is extra-strong, extra-sharp, and extra-affordable. Get three and stow them where your life depends on it. Thanks again, Knifecenter, for the best prices and the unusual variety!
