Pros: Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: Lock Type, None
The knife is a classic "pen knife" and sized as such. Mine came with even bevel grinds and a touch up on 800 and then 1200 grit put an acceptable edge to the blade. Don't expect the "Walk and Talk" build owned by American cutler's 50 years ago. Stay within the envelope of its lightweight size/design (deadheading in the garden, lunch bucket fruit knife, opening mail). It's liner lock is a novelty addition I would have gladly traded for a lanyard bail. It will serve you well or as a first knife for a responsible boy/girl.
