Another Classic Smith & Wesson
At the outset, let me just say that I love Smith & Wesson knives. I about 10 of them and they never disappoint. The Extreme Ops 3.5" fits in S&W's classic line very well. The knife is comfortable in your hand, not because of it's shape but because of its smooth lines,. It just feels great. As with all S&Ws, it is razor sharp right out of the box. The opening using the thumbnut is butter-smooth and locks in solidly. The tip-down clip is long for a secure pocket hold. The holes in the handle make it a very light knife to carry (3.29 oz on my scale). This is an EDC for me due to size, weight and comfort. Being retired, I no longer need a knife at work but taking care of 35 acres of woods gives me plenty of opportunity to use it clearing branches and starting scrub brush burning bonfires. It's a tough knife, like my other S&W blades. The best thing about all S&W knives is that they are unfailingly reliable. Get one. You will love it.
