Cons: Overall Quality, Weight, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Feels a little cheap
First, the good things about this knife. It's a good-looking knife with a smooth action and a great blade profile. It's as sharp as you'd expect, and it's a great size -- it fits well into my hand and it's not too large to be a decent EDC.Now the bad things. The handle material is terrible. It feels like low-grade plastic, and subsequently the weight is wrong on the knife. It's also very slippery because there's no texture to the material, making it a poor choice for EDC uses. Additionally, the blade was loose out of the box and required tightening. I was concerned that it would be too easy to accidentally cut myself while closing it. Speaking of closing the knife, the liner lock feels a little on the flimsy side as well. Not so much as I'd be concerned with using the knife, but enough where I notice. All in all, this has the appearance of a higher-end knife than what it is or what it feels like. I'd call it a suitable middle-of-the-road knife, but certainly not one of my favorites, or one I'll be using for daily carry.
