Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening, Weight, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Lock Type
Purpose built, not my choice for EDC...
Trying to make a long story short, I'm a Benchmade Axis fan and own many variations. When I saw the Spyderco Roc, I immediately loved the blade shape. The blade is heavy and durable. Opening is a two step process, use the thumb hole, then a flick of the wrist. Not a fan of the locking liner at all. Wanted to test its multi-functionality on my recent vacation to Hawaii. It works great as a cleaver and used it whenever a sharp knife was needed. However, a trip to the beach caused discoloration and I was highly disappointed. Its weight is a little bit heavier than my EDC Benchmade knives. The Roc fits a little big in the pocket and its handle, while textured, could be improved with some finger grooves or better grip.
