Megumi
Have always had a knife in my pocket especially working commercial fishing boats for the last 50 years. Even when not on a boat hardly a day goes by that I or someone nearby needs a knife to open or cut something. I like the small size so it doesn't overwhelm my pocket. Obvious quality in material and construction of this knife. One handed opening is easy enough. Very solid feel when using. Took me a while to decide from all the choices you have but glad I went with this one. Small size and Made in America with a high quality steel were my criteria.

Nice gentlemans folder - but very small
Yes, I knew it has a 2.48" blade when I ordered the knife, but when receiving it I was surprised on how small it actually is. As other mention due the size one handed opening is a bit awkward and a bit stiff. The blade is very sharp. The carbon is gorgeous.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Loose screws
Because of the small size one handed opening is a bit awkward. Both the pivot screw and the screw that holds the Nak-Lock button in place worked loose in a short time. Fairly easy to fix but Benchmade should have used thread locker during assembly to prevent this.
