Decent, civilized pocketknife
I purchased this knife because I am a college student and my campus rules state that I am allowed to carry a pocketknife with up to a 2" long blade. None of my other knives fit the bill and I am never without the single tool that determines survival when it hits the fan. That being said, I was looking for a more civilized pocketknife that wouldn't draw the wrong kind of attention but wouldn't leave me unprotected. This knife does just that. It is basically a very small, yet functional, razor blade folder. It is extremely sharp and has great ergonomics. I don't expect the knife to move mountains, just sit in my pocket and be capable of simple day-to-day tasks. When I need to carry a weapon, that is what my Ti-Lite and San Mai Black Talon are for. However, when I need to fit into society, I have this little guy. Most of what others have reviewed apply to this knife. I find the ease of opening just fine and can close the knife one handed if I depress the lock and then use my leg on the blade spine to close it. I see one drawback only to the longevity of this knife and wish I had known before purchasing. It does not have a metal liner. It's architecture could use said liner because the handle is only the "grivory" material which may one day break or crack. However, for the cost, intended use, blade material, ergonomics, and size it is worth the price. I kinda wish I had purchased the bigger version of this blade but I can't justify spending 12 more dollars on 1" inch more of handle and 0.025" in. thicker blade.
