Best value for the money and a classic
Perfect for old-timers like me. Doesn't spook NYC cops due to the total lack of "tactical" features seen on newer folders, but provides for a good grip, forward and reverse, and decent penetration due to the slim profile. Sharp out of the box - well, plastic sleeve. Opens easily with one hand, without holes or studs. After a couple of months of daily pocket ware started showing some rust/discoloration on the exposed part of the blade. But y'all gonna complain about that when you've got a German-made blade for 30$? Nope, just a heads-up.
