Pros: Handle Material, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
I purchased this knife mostly just to try it out, I was pleasantly surprised by its ease of use and how well it fits my fairly large hands. The knife functions better than advertised, it opens well when withdrawn from a pocket and even better when it is carried tucked behind a belt towards the front. The blade stays sharp even after opening too many cardboard boxes. The only drawback is that it is not as comfortable to use in a blade forward grip, I wouldn't want to skin a deer with it but that is not what this excellent tool is designed to do. One thing that is not mentioned in the description is that unopened this knife is an outstanding non-lethal implement. Held in with the forefinger through the ring it can be used as a re-enforced fist and the small point on the ring as well as the blade opening lever can be used for pressure point manipulation of an opponent. The folding thumb rest, when open, just adds to this utility. (Tried these kinds of techniques on one of my students, to great effect). As always, Knifecenter was a joy to do business with, I rate them a 6 out of 5.
