Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
A pleasure to use. Excellent value.
I work frequently with rope. I wanted a serrated blade and rescue features. This is one of the nicest knives I have worked with. Excellent balance, handle texture provides superior grip, and very easy to open with either hand from any position. Spring clip keeps the knife safe on a belt or pocket edge. Super sharp blade and large serrations make easy work of any rope. I like the rounded tip of the blade-- I don't use this knife for piercing, so it is actually easier/safer to close the blade, and safer to handle when open. I wasn't sure about the 'scissor' cut feature, but it is really handy for quickly cutting twine or small diameter rope without opening the blade. The whistle and glass breaker are nice touches.
