Elegant yet severe...
This is a great knife. It's not light, or small. Size of a 6" spyderco, but heavier. It's made really well and feels good in your hand. It has all the best elements of Japanese blade. Strength, feel, sharp, edge holding... It's blade is different and a bit more aggressive. Heavier. I like the feel and weight of it. You know it's in your hand. If I were to criticize it at all, it'd be for the lock system. You need to PAY attention when you're closing this blade. Maybe it could be a bit "easier" or "safer" to release, but it's not something that would stop me from owning this knife. For the price, it's a best pocket knife I've had.
