Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Great everyday carry-
This is my everyday carry. It fits nicely in my pocket, with little bulk, and is very comfortable. Opening and closing is effortless and the blade arrived extremely sharp. If you are looking for a small pocket knife, which can still get most jobs done easily, you should seriously consider this knife. I cannot think of any negatives in owning this product and have been very satisfied with my purchase.

Perfect EDC for all of the small cutting needs
Let me say that this little blade is just wonderful to carry everyday. Its small enough to fit in the change pocket on the right side of your jeans. Yes the blade is small, but for sharpening pencils, cutting through packaging and general use it shines. I own a number of larger EDC's, but this is the one I take as it is the easiest to carry. It opens with one hand no problem and is extremely discreet should you find yourself in a pickle- I think this knife could surprise. The knife is pricey, but the quality is top notch as you would expect with Al Mar. Aus-8 Steel is good, but not great and that is why I give it a 4 out of 5.

Cons: None
Fantastic, as long as it lasts
I loved my SLB. It lasted 2 years EDC. Just a brilliant little thing. Then one day the lock bar broke unexpectedly. That part where it broke was very thin, I noticed. It's taken me 18 months after many promises from Al Mar Knives to receive my warranty replacement. Needless to say - they never sent it!
