Very versatile folder...
I've owned this folder for months and the only reason it didn't get a 5 star is because it doesn't lock solid after awhile of using it, like all my other folders. Its primary purpose is for SD, evident in the finger ring built into the handle. But can be used for daily tasks, quite utilitarian. Its designed to open various ways, via the thumb hole on the blade, use of the Emerson Wave feature and the guard on the blade doubles as a flipper... really cool karambit folder, for the price. I feel very confident in the lock despite its slight "play" but wouldn't strike the back side of the blade on a potential opponent to deliver blows... would use the ring for that. Overall I'd recommend it. Will point out that there is a smaller version available which accomodates smaller hands. Just an fyi.
