Excellent EDC folder
This is an excellent lightweight,thin folder for your light to medium cutting needs. It is roughly the same size as kershaw skyline, to me it's a premium skyline with assisted open. Benchmades nitrous assist is my favorite assist mechanism, it allows the blade to pivot freely for about 70% of the arc when closing before spring makes resistance, making it an easy to fold one handed. Goes along well with my BM torrents. Some complain about coating on g10, but I like it as if is a slightly rough g10 but coating softens surface making in and out of pocket easy and smooth but stays in pocket, but still gives good grip. Blade is same thickness as mini griptillian but slightly longer, and came phone book paper sharp, blade on mine is perfectly centered and smooth as silk, with perfect lockup. This is a winner that I will have yo pick up another.
