A Great Companion.
I purchased this knife for daily use, back pocket carry. The size is near perfect. It is my personal opinion that 4" closed is the perfect size for a non-clip pocket knife. At 3 7/8 inches, this knife is almost there. The quality, fit and finish of this knife is outstanding. The old red bone scales look classy and classic at the same time. Blades are very sharp. There is no play in the blades when open. Good resistance from the back springs when opening, yet easy enough to open with minimal effort. There is one thing I wasn't crazy about: When fully open, each blade has the appearance that it is not fully open. There is an acute angle between the blade and the handle. I had to shorten the back springs slightly in order to align each blade straight with the handle. Considering Case's high quality control, I assume it was designed this way. My Case Trapper is not like this. Non-the-less, this knife still rates a 5.
