Pros: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
A lot to like
This is an initial impression. Folders aren’t usually my thing, I much prefer to spend my money on fixed blades, but this one just “spoke to me”. It operates with smooth action, easy to open in either hand. It has a good study feel in the hand. The blade has a sufficiently sharp factory edge. The blade geometry is excellent. Handle has a good neutral shape with comfortably beveled edges. The color of the liners and spacers contrast beautifully with the handle color. I only wish the pocket clip was the same color as the liners. Would have been a nice touch. I also would have preferred that the pocket clip came from the factory fastened to the other side. Being right handed, I don’t like how the pocket clip makes contact with the inside of my palm. The clip can be reversed to the opposite side. I just prefer knives to be ready to use out of the box without having to tweak or adjust them. Great knife for the money overall.

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip
Pivot lock is stiff
This knife is awesome for 36.95! Large and in charge for sure. The scales feel great in hand and overall the knife feels more expensive than it is. My only complaint is the lock... it’s extremely stiff and hard to operate one handed. At least on my knife if you attempt to open and close one handed with the lock, the bar racks itself in the slot and makes it harder to move. Maybe over time it will break in only time will tell. But for now, it’s two fingers on both sides of the lock bar. Still completely worth the money asked though!
