Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Elegant and slim
Excellent EDC (if you don't use a pocket clip). Slips into the pocket, with no sharp corners sticking into your leg.The blade is sharp out of the box, with a very smooth action. I could wrist snap it open without any lube on the pivot.The thumb stud is changeable (I'm a lefty), but here comes the Chinese part. The supplied torx tool does not loosen the stud screw. In actual fact, none of my torx bits would fit. So I had to revert to more basic tools to remove.The blade is nicely polished (one very small scratch), but the left and right grind does not match.The blade lock, which is button operated, works well, but is not very strong, so don't try any Coldsteel tricks with it.Overall, great value for money, but not perfect.
