Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
I had mine for 11 years, thought I lost it and came on this site to replace it. I have recovered it recently and am happy to have it back. Great knife, here's why: Very sharp out of the box, and stays sharp with moderate use. Easy one hand opening while multitasking, easy one hand closing. Lock is strong, never had accidental closing. Safety is secure, never had accidental opening in the pocket. Able to manipulate safety and lock while maintaining positive grip in handle, both opening and closing. Handle is aluminum and strong. Size and shape of handle provides positive control. Only down side is the serrated blade. When it is factory sharp, it cuts well. However, when it gets some use, it frays nylon rope. For this reason, I prefer a straight edge. Makes for easier sharpening as well. I doubt this knife will break anytime soon, but if it does, I will replace it with a straight edge of the same model, if available.
