My new Favorite knife
Pros: Overall value ($85) you get high quality.Blade shape, ergonomics, deploys nice and easy with a "light switch" style flipping action or deploys fast with a "push button" style. ZERO WRIST ASSIST REQUIRED. The blade weight is just right so the blade doesn't have too much momentum when deploying. The detent is perfect too. It keeps the knife shut firmly but still deploys easy enough. The dual stainless liners are a plus for me. They make the handle much more solid. The liner lock slides over perfectly smooth with no rubbing or resistance from the knife tang. The ceramic ball bearings operate smooth with not much need to "break in" I LOVE THAT THERE IS NO JIMPING! I don't like knives with tons of jimping, it ends up chewing my pockets up and I just don't like the way they feel. This knife is super smooth and comfortable in the hand, and it also is designed to slide in and out of your pocket very easily. The way the handle is shaped in contour with the flipper allows you to reach in your pocket and not bump into a sharp flipper tab like other knives. The handle is relatively thin in comparison to it's weight of 6.4 ounces. It's flat enough that it distributes the weight evenly in your hand and in your pocket. It may take some getting used to the weight of it in your pocket, depending on how baggy your pants are especially. I love the fact it has the upper finger choil to choke up on. While it's not really designed to contour with the G-10 handles like some other knives( A choil in the blade and in the handle that meet together) you can still put the upper part of your index finger in the choil and choke up. It's a rather large knife (for me at least) but it really doesn't feel like it is. The wide blade and handle help to balance that out. It's very similar to the Kershaw Junkyard Dog 2, and the Stedemon DSG, but it's blended all the good things about those 2 knives and made the perfect knife! I've collected /owned / bought / sold / traded plenty of knives and this particular one seems to be the perfect blend of all the things I liked in previous knives that were flawed or lacking. Cons / Comments: The only things I would change about this knife would be a rounder finger choil, and a slight bevel on the finger choil to make it more ergonomic. Maybe bring the choil close to the handle and contour it so your choil finger is gripping the handle too. I have mixed feelings about coated blades because there isn't much you can do on your own to fix the wear that will happen to them over time. I would have much preferred a black-wash finish. I think they look more natural and are easier to clean. My copy came with some minor imperfections on part of the coating of the blade. It appears dust or material got stuck on the blade before it was hit with the coating. I'm not too worried about it but it's worth mentioning. It also could be an ounce lighter! But it is a solid knife! OVERALL: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! TASTEFUL KNIFE WITH A GREAT PRICE POINT AND QUALITY. MY FIRST KIZER KNIFE AND IT GOT ME INTERESTED IN THEIR COMPANY!
