Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
I don't like the name of this knife, it's pretty dumb and they should change it, Apart from that, this knife is quite nice. I've been wanting a company to come out with a knife with rubber or something of the like and finally someone has! Benchmade did a great job with the large version of this and this mini is just the right size. It's nice to see S30V blade steel going down in price. I venture to say that's because of the mass production of it now compared to a few years ago; along with the other high end premium steel being produced like CPM-20CV, CPM-S90V and CPM-S110V to name a few. The edge is wicked sharp! The versaflex handles are full of grip and FINALLY there's jimping on the spine of the knife. Blade centering is spot on, the lock up is great, the action is fair but will break in over time. The flat grind on this blade just fits the bill and it has plenty of belly too. I think the design of this blade proves that it can take some major abuse if necessary. Before I forget, the pocket clip nicely matches the handle and the retention is just right.
