Pros: None
Cons: Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
Quality is good, but it's difficult to use
The knife is well constructed and the blade is very solid when locked opened. I find the knife to be quite difficult to open using the thumb stud. I believe this is because the radius of the stud from the blade pivot pin is a bit too short. The safety is not as intuitive as it could be. As a firearms owner, I'm accustomed to crossbolt safeties that are deactivated with the index finger, but the crossbolt safety on this knife is deactivated with the thumb (I guess this might be a plus for lefties). The knife is also too heavy for my taste for EDC.
