Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Nice blade, virtually unopenable
The video says it is difficult to open, what an understatement! Not only was i hard to open when I took it out of the package, it has gotten worse, so bad that it take tow hands to open. I can open my little SOG with one hand,( takes some skill, and, time but I can do it), this is almost impossible to open without using the thumb studs, and most of the time impossible to open using the thumb studs, so the only sure way to get it open is with two hands. Oddly it goes from tough to open with the thumb to impossible to open with the thumb to tough again. I thought that like most new knives working it open and closed (or working the frame lock if that's the hard part) would make it easier, NOT, it seems to make it worse. SO another knife relegated to the drawer! I will never buy an assisted opener again, I much prefer a blade that opens with the flick of the wrist, much easier, safer, and faster that any flipper, or assisted blade I have seen!

Pros: Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Except for the poor opening not a bad knife.
Will not open with thumb pressure. I believe the reason it's so inexpensive is there is a design flaw with the spring. Overall the handle is well made with a strong clip. The blade is also not bad and it comes well sharpened.

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Decent knife with weak assist
This was a gift for my son. He is of age to have an assisted opening pocket knife. I have many that are assisted and put this one to shame. The locking mechanism is solid and the blade holds an edge. Finish is fine. If it accully opened without pulling the blade I would give it a better overall score.
