Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
Great knife.
I am delighted with this knife. I use it for light-duty EDC purposes. The titanium scales really make this knife. Some may argue that the milling is over done, but I think it's perfect. I'm very impressed with the bearing system for releasing the blade. There is nothing I would change about this knife.

Ken Onion Eros
This is an everyday carry knife when I am in business casual dress or business dress. The light weight and elegant scales make it an easy carry. The blade is very sharp and holds its edge well. A few minor touches of a hard stone makes the edge as good as new.
