Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Good Knife for the money
Color and feel of the knife are clean. The lock button is simple and held up well to drop test. I found it hard to open one handed, so the assist was of no use. I spring on the assist seems very strong. All and all its a good cheap knife.

Cons: Blade Material, Pocket Clip, None
Second Purchase
I use this knife as a general utility knife, mostly opening cardboard boxes and cutting plastic. The entire thing is held together with star screws. Pros: The blade holds an edge well Sharpens fairly quickly Good overall construction Opening assist isn't to strong or weak push button on the side to close is nice Cons: Belt clip is nearly impossible to get off, broke 2 star screw drivers trying. The blade has a weird splintering effect when you sharpen it with normal sharpeners, you have to use a ceramic sharpener to get a smooth edge.

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.
