Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
I am a huge fan of Emerson blades but this blade is so finely crafted that it is extremely brittle. Let me explain,... the very tip of the blades is the finest ground V edge I have ever seen. It literally is a needlepoint. So, if you happen to drop it, (from 3 feet onto gravel) expect the tip to break off. This was highly disappointing but expected. Hence, this is now an excellent work knife instead of a excellent self defense weapon.
