Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality
Hard to beat as a 'dress knife,' also great for EDC
When I buy knives, I buy them with a specific role in mind, and spend about a week doing research, reading reviews, and generally being anal about making a decision, and then I review them a few months later with that role in mind. When I bought this knife, it was to have a classy knife that I could carry in dressed-up situations that would both look nice and perform well. When I received this knife, I liked it so much I started EDC-ing it. The pictures you see online don't even begin to it justice. It's easily the sleekest, most beautiful knife I own, and one of the most usable. The finish is absolutely stunning, especially in sunlight, and it's durable above and beyond what I expected. I've used the blade to deburr holes drilled in quarter-inch aluminum with not so much as a scratch. The entire knife picks up fingerprints like a mirror, but wipes off on a t-shirt very easily. The handle isn't grippy, but for the purposes I use it for it doesn't have to be. The blade itself has an interesting shape; it's kind of like a Delica and a sheepsfoot had babies. The tip is long and slender, good for precision work and light- to medium-duty EDC tasks. Don't expect to use it as a woodworking knife; the tip's not up to that. The spring assist is responsive and quiet, and the safety is simple and hasn't loosened in the half a year or so that I've had the knife. The knife is also a good one to carry in places where knives aren't politically correct. I get complemented on it all the time. It makes a great conversation starter. It's a pretty damn great feeling to have a girl come up to you, interested in your knife. Overall, for the purpose, I don't think I'll ever find a better knife than this one.
