Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
An excellent copy of the original
The frame lock is better than the original, covering a larger part of the "tang" - the back of the blade. - locking the blade securely The knife feels very light in the hand and pocket, the clip is well positioned to reveal as little as possible outside the pocket. Lastly, the finish is excellent, giving the knife a rugged no-nonsense look while hiding minor imperfections that one can incur under use. There were no imperfections as delivered. The skeletal construction makes cleaning a cinch.I find the Haddock not only unique and pleasing in proportions, "feel" and finish, but too, it is an excellent EDC, my favorite production knife to date.The pivots work smoothly and there is no play between the blade and handle. I haven't tried shaving with it, but I would not be surprised that I could.A beautiful design and exercise in simplicity - typical of the Dane aesthetic. Followed by uncompromising German manufacture of course, from the town that has been making knives for a 1000 years.I am hoping that ANSO and BOKER will collaborate with more product...for example ANSO's FUNK....another great design. I'd be on line to buy the first.The Haddock feels like a custom knife (and I have many) and not a production blade.
