Pros: Blade Material, Weight, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Feel
Something I will take to Italy
Planning a trip abroad next year. Heard they frown on carrying knives in Italy - not at all free like we are - so, since I can't break myself of the habit, I thought I'd bring one that would get me a pass (MADE in Italy) if I'm caught (claim ignorance) AND it's stainless!I have to bear in mind the price. That said, the action was rough (several hours of opening and closing a taped blade with polishing compound in the pivot slicked it up some) and the handle was rough (1000 grit paper and a polishing wheel helped make it look and feel right). If you buy one, don't expect the build quality of a CASE XX (I own several), the final finishing is not there but for the money, it's a serviceable knife. Ought to shine on a picnic in the Tuscan countryside!
