Pros: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material
This knife has no gripping at all! And the knife is heavy! The worst thing is that the hole for opening of the blade comes in conflict with the "finger stopper". So it's impossible to open this knife smooth! This is one of these things that a knife manufacturer should seen even before the knife was shipped out! The pocket clip is very sturdy and the blade is viced sharp, but that's the only pros
