Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Weight, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, None
This knife is near flawless! Slightly handle heavy, which I like. It has a very tight spring for an axis-style lock, and requires a decent amount of force to open, but there is little else bad to say about it. The fit and finish are amazing for a knife that costs less than $150. It looks like a knife that could sell for a hundred dollars more than the KC price. It has a very solid lock, with zero play when locked open. Clean lines from the pommel to the tip, and the edge is razor sharp, as is to be expected. The jimping on both sides of the handle make for a very secure grip, when combined with the carbon/G2 handle. For such a smooth looking knife, I would be very comfortable handling this in wet conditions. The brushed finish on the blade is perfect. The pocket clip is very tight out of the box, but could be adjusted. One caveat: when closed, the tip of the blade is flush with the handle, but it's unlikely that it would actually nick a finger in normal circumstances. It's a great EDC for the money, and I would highly recommend it.
