A modern gentleman's knife
I have never loved a blade more. You can see from the pictures that its design lines are simple and clean, but the pictures really don't do it justice. The G10 scales have a very pleasing tactility, the pocket clip feels perfectly placed in both carry and use in either configuration, the shape of the cutting edge makes it an excellent all-around utility for a professional man. I love that it looks modern and refined, not antiquated, washed-up, or "tacticool". I use it to open boxes, cut packaging, and peel fruit, mostly. It's hair-shaving sharp out of the box and keeps its edge pretty well if you don't abuse it. I wouldn't suggest that anyone count on having the mental wherewithal to deploy a folding knife in self-defense AND convincing a jury that the use of lethal force was justified; however, if you're so disposed to such delusions, this will do it just as well as any run-of-the-mill tactical folder. The most important thing about this knife is that it makes me smile. I enjoy the way it looks, feels, and functions so much in my everyday life.
