Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip
I bought this to a replace a knife that I've carried for more than five years and I couldn't be more happy with it. The AUS-8 blade came razor sharp, so sharp in fact that I cut the tippy tip of my thumb clean off while being a little too careless. I've had people ask if it's spring assisted after seeing how quickly and easily it flips open. I feel very comfortable with how quickly I can draw the knife in case of an emergency. There has been virtually no play after a month of light use and very repetitive opening and closing. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone and for the first time in my life I'm considering owning more than one of the same knife... or maybe the smaller model 2. This is simply a good solid knife with the kind of quality that you don't usually find at this price.
