Cons: Lock Type, None
Love this knife!
I love this knife! It has supplanted my Microtech as my favorite everyday carry knife. The wave feature is easy to use, but requires a bit of practice to master. Once you have that down though this thing comes out of your pocket with the knife open and ready to use. I can't think of a better self defense blade. Plus it's great fun to twirl when you're bored, just be careful! The only con is the liner lock, while it locks securely there is a bit of play. I would rather have a beefy framelock. These are small complaints and wouldn't give me pause if I was reaching for it in a self defense scenario.

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
It serves as an excellent self defense tool especially if you have some experience with personal self-defense techniques. Lightweight, strong and quick on the draw. Great for making mundane everyday chores extreme! Opening an envelope? Cutting the tag off a new shirt? Taking 3 karambits at once and pretending you're Wolverine? It does it all.
