Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
A really good knife IMO
I've used this knife for everyday use, and it lasted for me about two years now, The pocket clip is pretty strong and I can place/clip it into my pocket with ease, but I did encounter a problem where the clip actually bent outward, but was easily fixed using pliers and bent it straight back down. I can't say anything about camping/survival qualities since I've used it mostly for opening boxes and cutting things like strings or ropes. However, I did use it once to shave a make-shift walking stick while hiking and the knife retained it's sharpness pretty well. Blade is sharp, however, the best thing I like about it is that the serrations doesn't take up half of the blade, serrations are nice and can help cut things easier, but hard to sharpen, so I really like how the blade has a good small length of serrations to use. The handle on the blade feels comfortable as well, and the ease of opening the knife goes really smooth as well, so overall I really like this knife a lot and can recommend it.
