Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Great for light duty
I bought this knife because of its simple flat design and carbon content. It rests well at the bottom of your front pocket. After a month of normal cutting the blade started to wiggle in the locked open position, ie: I wouldnt use it for anything too strenuous. Its more of a finess player. Maybe good for skinning a squirrel or other task where sharpness really counts.
