Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Easily the best knife I have ever owned.
This knife is amazing. Absolutely solid blade, no wiggle whatsoever, solid lock and smooth movement. The entire knife screams quality. The stonewashed blade is something I have never seen before but it's stunning. The G10 handles will very obviously age well and are incredibly solid and well put together. The blade comes absolutely razor sharp out of the box. This knife is completely underrated.

Nice Knife
The only thing that sucks is the T7 torx required to switch the clip to tip-up carry. I have not been able to find the size and prefer tip-up very much. If the knife came configured for tip-up carry it would be absolutely perfect in my opinion. 154cm is a great all around steel. You can't go wrong with G-10, and this G-10 is purdy. The blade is thick. The lock is strong and will last forever. I love this tanto shape. The manual safety is good to have to ensure you don't lose your fingers. I like the shape of the pocket clip as well. The handle may be short, but it rests against your inner palm in a way that would support thrusts well and the jimps/grip are reliable for retention during slashing cuts. All though the blade is only 3.5 inches, it is a stout 3.5 inches with a lot of potential squuezed into the size. I would recomend it over most similar knives produced by other brands that are much more expensive. Elishewitz (Spelling?)is an outstanding designer. Great all-around tactical folder.
