Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath, Lock Ease of Use
Cons: None
Happy to Find That These Still Exist
I am a printing press man and no knife fits our occupation better than this one. We use these knifes in prepping the rolls of paper, cutting jammed paper out of the press, making the lead up tapes, cutting bundling twine, etc. The knife has a thin profile that allows it to fit in your pocket unlike the buck 110 which you have to wear a sheath which if you ask any press man you do not want things hanging off your body that can get caught. These knives take a beating the paint may wear off but it works day after day. Back in the day the paper companies gave us these. Then they disappeared the only ones were a cheap Asian copy that were terrible . I am so glad to see that you can get the real German ones again. Give it to the right person and you can make these razor sharp. You can go through paper like a lazer beam

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Basic and solid
Different, but great, looking knife with a story. My only ding against it is the uneven paint in the k55k logo on mine. I have the stainless version. Sharpens well. Lock up inspires confidence. Good light use slicer. Would probably filet decently in a pinch, given the long narrow blade.

Great knife for our craftsmen to use. Durable yet light weight and small enough to carry comfortably in your pocket.
