Pros: None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Poor locking mechanism
I almost cut the end of my finger off. The release button on the locking mechanism is in a bad spot. I pushed the button by accident as I was gripping the knife. The blade closed as I was prying down with the handle. I seem to naturally put my thumb on the release button. I am throwing that knife away. I hope the stitches keep the end of my middle finger on.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Weight, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, None
Very good knife. Factory sharpness was very good and blade holds an edge very well. I haven't had to sharpen it yet. Pocket clip must be glued in or something. It's secured with 2 star screws and I broke 2 screwdrivers trying to get it off. The screws didn't budge. I love the locking mechanism, but everyone else that uses my knife has no idea how to close it.

Pros: Sheath
Cons: None
Great knife but...
Great knife with a sharp and easy to sharpen blade. I love the feel of the knife in my hands. Everything about the knife is great except for the metal clip. After about two weeks the clip got caught on my mower handle. I thought I would be able to bend the hook back but was unable to. Then the clip was permanently bent sticking out. I finally took the clip off all together. Maybe make the clips out of a thicker metal.
