Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
This is my everyday pocket knife. I am one that buys quality to use daily. I am very impressed with the balance, and feel. The knife fits snuggly in my front pocket and does not catch or hinder access to the pocket. Yes it is fair price to pay for a 'Pocket' knife, but I have been through all the others....that are supposed to be of higher quality - Blade and Case. However I actually use my knife, daily and I have found with all the other higher end knives that I have purchased, the set screws start to loosen, the bladed do not hold an edge and dull quickly with use. I don't want to have to resharpen my blade after each use and I do not have time, will nor the required equipment with me everyday to perform routine maintenance on the blade. So as far as the hefty price goes, it actually is a lot less expensive than the 15-20 $75-125.00 knives I have gone through in the past 5-6 years - Fell apart, blade broke, won't keep an edge, clip falls off...etc. So far no complaints and it's built to use!
