Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
I love this knife. I was originally issued one in '11 before deploying to Afg, and I loved it. The only thing is I would catch the pocket clip on door frames and it would stretch out, but thats mostly cause I take corners really tight. I love the weight and feel of the handle. The ridges make it really easy to hold when wearing gloves. The lock opens easy and is easy to clean. The blade is easy to sharpen and holds an edge, even when cutting through random things like dry rotted wooden board edges, 550 cord and wires. It is my go to, and whenever I was offered to get another one from supply I took it. I have even bought them as gifts for buddies, because I think it is just that great of a knife. I definitely recommend this to everyone!

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Sheath, Handle Feel, Blade Material
Cons: None
Out of pure luck I purchased this knife at an afghan shop on the base I was stationed at. Several factors told me it was the real deal, including the NSN on the blade. It is the strongest knife I have ever owned. I use it daily for cutting everything from 550 cord to rubber hoses. It sharpens quick and holds an edge. If it ever wears out, I will purchase another.

Cons: None
My EDC/GoTo choice
This was my first auto knife. I chose it based primarily by feel and reputation when NH legalized all knives back in 2010. In the year plus since then I have purchased several other autos but this is my 'carry and use it every day' choice. The blade is no longer "pretty" as it gets used for whatever needs to be done whether it be cutting wire wire reinforced exhaust hose off the boat manifolds or clearing an accumulation of weeds out of the corn chopper. It has done every task and resharpens surprisingly easily. I love the axis lock/release, quick and easy to deploy or close and it shows no signs of loosening up despite hard use. I'd like to say that I purchased it from Knife Center but they will only sell to military and police while I am just a firefighter. My understanding is that fed. law will allow me to purchase but company policy is otherwise. Fortunately some of our better gun shops carry quality autos now, so I will be able to replace this if I manage to wear it out.
