Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
50+ years and still great
I have had one of these for over 50 years. It is in great shape. These days, I use it primarily as a letter opener, but have used it to strip wires and some general shop and camping use. I like the unique lock mechanism. It will probably go to a grandchild someday. The blade is a bit more tapered towards the tip than the current version, and I don't think it is stainless steel, but the model number is the same (1940T).
