Pros: None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Flawed
Nearly impossible to open one handed with thumb in blade thumb hole because it collides with the handle. Handle coating is very slick and is made of stainless steel making it fairly heavy. The pocket clip is positioned so the knife is carried "point down" which is the wrong direction. Should be carried point up to avoid fumbling when trying to open the blade one handed. Locating a "wrench" of the proper size to turn out the screws and reposition the clip is nearly impossible.

Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, None
Great Little Knife
I like this knife and I needed a new work knife. The knife came shave ready and I thought it was great because it had some weight to it. The steel is great cuts beautifully and handles nicely. My only qualms with the knife are the frame lock is a bit stiff but it should soften up with time and the handles are not grippy enough but other then that its pretty nice.
