Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
I've been carrying pocket knives daily for more than half a century. In that time I've gone from small knives to big knives to small again. For work I prefer medium to large knives, but at other times, such as when shopping or attending church, I like a small to medium size knife that won't weigh me down or eat holes in my pockets (Some knife is ALWAYS better than no knife!). A canoe knife, with its modest size and rounded ends, seemed to fit that bill pretty well. Never having owned one, and given the modest price of this one, I thought I'd give it a try. I wish it had brass liners like some of my other collectible folders, but given its price, this one looks and functions very well. As is my wont, I used a file and ultra-fine sandpaper to soften the corners even more. Mine showed no flaws in fit or materials. At this price point you get a very nice, useful and attractive tool.
