Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Spend A Little More
Had planned to use this as a EDC/utility pocket knife. Price is very reasonable. Appearance and materials are very good. Spring assist action and blade pivot are kind of gritty and give it a low-quality feel. Locking/safety button does not stay put in the "safety off" position and creeps into the "safe" position by itself, and therefore unexpectedly will not open - I guess that is a better than springing open unexpectedly, but it should stay put where the user wants it and not creep one way or the other.Given the gritty operation and poor precision of the safety, this has been relegated to my "interesting but not useful" part of the display case.
