Cons: Lock Ease of Use
nice trophy knife
This knife, with great form factor and beautiful wood handles is personable and attractive. I would rate it 4 stars due to its rather-minor-to-some lack of ease of opening and closing, which are just OK but not really fidget-ready. Opening is by blade-pinching so is two fingered and not bad at that, just that its not a flipper. Unlocking, once you get the hang, is pretty easy but the sharp un-chafered edge is not that comforting. It is also not rugged and not built for tough jobs. But if it were made in USA I would consider it heirloom-like. So overall it tries to be a bargain in a gentleman's knife and succeeds other than the aforementioned trade-offs. More of a show-horse than a work-horse, but a very nice one unless you need (like me) a fun fidgeter as well. Smooth chafer the liner for better closing and it might be near perfect given the design.
