Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
One word: outstanding
My intent when I bought this blade was for a sturdy EDC folder that combined safety, comfort and toughness. In brief: Mission accomplished. The handle material and shape is remarkably comfortable and the size and placement of the carry clip is such that it doesn't dig into the hand like the clips on a lot of folders. This allows for continuous use but it does sacrifice a little bit on the ''grippiness'' of the knife, albeit not so much that it becomes an issue. Though there was a minute amount of blade play when I received the knife, that blade play has remained the same after some quite heavy use so I'm not concerned about that worsening and, as I said, the blade play was minute. The action is absolutely flawless and the locking action is very secure. As for the steel, well it's D2 so there's no need to expand on that. Those of you that know what D2 is will know what I mean. For the others, I strongly recommend you look it up as it does have a significant impact depending on what you intend to do with the knife.
