Excellent smaller EDC
This knife will most likely be my EDC for quite some time. I love the shape, size, and fitment in my hand. It's not too small or too big. I've only used it to cut some paper, a zip tie, and a few bite size pieces of apple. In all instances it performed flawlessly, the knife inspires confidence and I'm sure it would have no problem taking on larger tasks. Pros: - Price - Size, overall shape, it feels great in the hand, nice EDC for those looking for a knife that is a bit on the smaller side. - love the low ride wire clip - solid lockup, zero blade play - very sharp out of the box - The feel of the G-10 is perfect. I'm a G-10 fan. Cons: - lower-end blade steel, but what do you expect at this price - The one I received has a slight blemish on the blade, ironically next to the Taiwan stamp - No jimping (spyderco's site says it does have jimping, I believe the original CF version did, probably just an oversight) - Stiff to open and close at first, it has "broken in" though I wish I picked up one of the original CF versions, I guess it was discontinued for a reason though.
