Pros: Weight, Balance, Construction, Materials
Excellent Urban Weapon
It's beautifully weighted, opens with a flick of the wrist and contrary to other reviews I have read is not a all difficult to close. Weapon is compact (concealable) and fairly light to carry around, but durable. Light enough so it can be moved around with great speed, yet hard enough and with enough weight to cause devastating damage to an aggressor. The environment I will be carrying it in is Israel where they constantly check you for guns and knives, so if I am taking a bus from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem I'd never make it on the bus with my K-Bar, but I will with this. One word of warning, get some training if you want to carry this or any other weapon. It's not a magic stick; it's a tool and you need to know how to use it.
