Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material
I hadn't looked at this knife is some time, but when it went on sale, I thought I'd go ahead and get one. I do like the steel on this knife, and although I haven't used it extensively, it has held its edge well. It took a little time for the flipper to loosen up, but now it opens with just the slightest amount of wrist action. The blade locks solidly with no sideways movement. I like the size and shape of the handle, and the scales have a nice crosshatch pattern etched in them to aid in a solid grip. The knife fits well in my hand, and I have fairly large hands. I did file the edges of the scales a little on the inside edges to round them, as they created a bit of a hot spot after some use, and now it's very comfortable to hold and use. It's a larger blade than I would use for EDC, but I knew that before I ordered it. It is very light, and may feel cheap to some; it does feel inexpensive, but FAR from cheap. The only downside may be the pocket clip... it's a bit tight and the crosshatch pattern on the scales may abrade the inside of ones pocket, but that's not an unusual thing. All in all, it's a pretty good knife, especially on sale.
