Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Excellent small EDC
Overall, a very good small EDC blade. Despite its short blade length (2.25"), the workhorse has an overall width and thickness that give it a very solid feel. The G-10 scales are substantial and nicely machined; the liner lock is solid and secure, and the action is smooth and easy. Fit and finish overall is very good. Edge holding is so-so, but certainly acceptable for knife in this price range. The upside of the relatively soft steel is that sharpening is quick and easy and it will take an excellent, very sharp edge. While the Small Workhorse is not intended for tasks beyond smaller everyday cutting chores, for that purpose this is a very well made, high value little knife.
