Pros: Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, None
I have had this knife for around 4 years, I use it every day, from opening boxes to cutting rope. The pocket clip is on the right side to carry it in the pocket so that when you pull it out it is ready to open. The blade takes and retains an edge very well with medium and fine arkansas oil stone and leather strop. I bought this knife to replace my 2nd SOG twitch II that I lost. The only signs of wear are the hard anodizing wearing off of the handle scales on the corners where you slip it into your pocket/contact with keys/coins in pocket. The TiNi coating is wearing some on the "kick" that you flick to open it. The safety lock next to the lockback is a joke, it gets in the way and after a while, the spring lost its tension and it wouldn't stay in the unlocked position. Which led to it being locked closed every time I pulled it out. Overall, for a 4 year old knife it holds up great. It is also easy to disassemble to clean / lubricate (Technically this voids SOG's warranty unless it is to replace parts you order from them) You can order replacement pocket clips for free from SOG. You can also order a myriad of replacement parts if you call them. I plan on ordering several more of these with different blades etc.
