Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, None
Cons: Handle Feel
Great Knife,Proud to own.
First of all let me start by saying mine came with a couple minor imperfections on the spine (couple rough spots) but that doesn't take away from the knife at all. These blades are hand forged in Japan using traditional techniques so every blade may be unique to some degree. The blade is thick and strong,not to mention sharp. It weighs virtually nothing and I rarely notice it in my pocket. There is no lock but there is enough friction to prevent the knife from opening in your pocket. all in all I would be hard pressed to find a truly hand forged folder with this quality for the price.Plus it's a hand forged Japanese blade! ( I like samurai movies alot ) The handle could be a little more comfortable but I think that would just add weight and ruin the simplicity of the knife overall.
