a very good EDC choice!
my initial impression: for its size, it's heavy! and it felt so! Compared to my Spyderco Pacific Salt (which is basically H1 steel Endura), it felt heavier. the lock is sturdy. the thumb stud is protruded out more than the thickness of handle BUT the stud is very close to the handle itself that you really have to push it with your thumb to execute the deployment. Due to lock-back design, it is heavier in opening than, say, Kershaw Skyline (a liner-lock). But with it comes, stronger lock. The pocket clip is long and thin so it'll look like a pen, except the few part of the knife handle that sticks out of pocket. Keep that in mind. Also the contact point between the clip and the handle makes it rough on anything you're trying to clip -- watch this wear your jeans... not as aggressive as cold steel G10, but it's rough.
