Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
Best value for the money and a classic
Perfect for old-timers like me. Doesn't spook NYC cops due to the total lack of "tactical" features seen on newer folders, but provides for a good grip, forward and reverse, and decent penetration due to the slim profile. Sharp out of the box - well, plastic sleeve. Opens easily with one hand, without holes or studs. After a couple of months of daily pocket ware started showing some rust/discoloration on the exposed part of the blade. But y'all gonna complain about that when you've got a German-made blade for 30$? Nope, just a heads-up.

Mercator Solingen K55 Black Cat Knife German, Carbon Steel, Army Issue
Love my cat knife. However they are just as expensive as a Buck 110 from Walmart. But the Cat knife is EZer to carry in pocket and love the carbon steel balde as its Ezer to keep sharp as its a thinner blade using a bit coarser stone.Of coarse it LOCKS Last Batch I got was from Worldknives in Washington for about 17$ apc. However the prices are all the same at about $28 which most people will think is too much for a cheap looking knife but after you carry other knives the Carbon steel is where it shines. I rate this as one of the MOST PRACTICAL EDC knife around. My 200$ Herburtus Auto is nice but heavy & never really cuts as good as the cat knife. These are made by Ottermesser in Germany. But before 1996 by soemones else and they were a little better made as I notice the locks are slightl looer than the early versions. OtterMesser makes some nice carbon steel knives but hard to get in the US.
