Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Use it a work (marine environment)cutting some stuff up and left it on the dock while I did something else real quick, someone came by and kicked it off the dock in to the water, reset the macho meter because I almost cried. I have more expensive knives, bigger knives, but this one is a true gem. I was hesitant to buy it, being made in china and all, but I fugured I was going to beat on it, and spyderco has great blades, so I ordered it. The knife locks up solid, the stainless steel liners are thick, and the blade is razor sharp. Pocket clip is reversible for the lefties. When dull, lap it a few times on a stone, hit it up with a knife steel (or a smooth stainless socket ext. if it's handy)and it will shave hairs again. The knife is better quality than knives 3 times it's price. Made in China so what, in this economy, for this price, this knife is a steel, I'm ordering all three sizes. Also great for out in the woods, campcraft, and hunting and fishing. Buy it.
