Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
brought a tear to my eye...
The Tomcat has everything I look for in a folder: 1. Full steel liners 2. Thick, premium steel blade that comes razor sharp 3. Super strong lock. The arc lock puts liner/frame locks to shame. 4. Looks wicked when open. The kraton handles are grippy, but the only thing I might change is to replace them with G10. Or at least offer it. The price is also a winner. Compare this to the price of other companies flagship models. I can't believe a Strider is any better than a Tomcat. Strider knives have one handle slab that is just plastic!! For $400 bucks or more? Gimme a break. Yeah, I know titanium framelock on one side and G10 on the other is the hot trend in folders right now, but don't get fooled: Good old steel, on BOTH sides won't let you down. Highly reccomended.
