Pros: Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Cons: None
Very nice knife
This is a very nice knife. The lightweight handle is textured enough that even with wet and dirty hands you can still control the knife. It is a little bigger than I had expected but still carries well in the pocket. The knife arrived razor sharp and keeps its edge well. This is an excellent tool for both everyday use and as a self defense tool in trained hands.

Pros: None
Cons: None
I have been a fan of Cold steel knives for more than a decade and this is the first time i can say that this knife was not what i expected. The out of box sharpness was ok but not the hair popping razor sharp you would expect. The second and most disappointing is that the blade has a small amount of front and back play.There is no way to adjust it and its probably a problem of the stop pin. the lockup is solid.
