World's best "pocket Stiletto".
It is useful, stays sharp and, for the lack of a better term, is a "jackknife of all trades". It should work quite well for pesonal defense. This is small enough to be carried in a three-piece suit yet big enough to carry on a ten-mile hike. This is the "logical evolution" of the Italian Stiletto. The "negatives" (soft steel, lack of decent cutting edge profile, poor blade lockup) have all been eliminated. The next step should be an 11" version for Combat/Military/LE/Firefighter/EMT use. Kershaw has "hit another home run". Kudos to the people in Tualatin, OR for another great job.
