Great knife!
I ordered this knife to replace another Benchmaid I had for years and used for everything for work, and for fun and hobbies. I abused my old knife a ton and it stayed true and sharp, but I wanted a new one. This knife is awesome! It is large, heavier than my old knife, and solid as heck! I use it to pry things, though I know that "isn't what knives are for", It has stayed very sharp and super solid no matter what so far! It locks very well and solid, easy assisted open nub, and has a very well weighted feel! Easy one hand operation, easy to use blade lock, and locking switch on the upper back side of the frame. I have even used this knife to cut hvac sheet metal to bend, and it has stayed sharp.The grips are smooth and comfortable as heck, except I have a fat wide palm, and the pocket clip kind of digs a little into my palm. It is a solid and tight holding pocket clip though Overall! No falling out of you pocket! It does not come with a sheath at all, but a little bag that feels nice until you put it back in the box to never use.Overall, what I use this knife for, and how often I use it, it is amazing!I am even about to order one for my dad soon.
