Solid non-locking Folder
I travel internationally often. The knives I would normally carry in the United States are not always legitimate in other countries. This knife fills the gap without having to resort to buying a cheap kitchen knife when I get to a country. The design is pretty well thought out. It has good weight, the grips are easy to hold, and the knife is SOLID. The non-locking folder has a very strong spring retention, so it is unlikely to fold on you while working. The bad thing is that the knife profile is ground in such a way that trying to open the knife can be difficult. I actually ground a few score marks along the top front sides of the blade to give better grip when opening or closing. I had a few close calls where i had a hard time controlling the blade due to the very heavy spring pressure.Other than that, the knife is great. Sharp, easy to hold and use, belt clip, and has a solid metal "pommel." Highly recommended. Gets a 4 out of 5 as the blade should have been better designed for grip due to the high spring pressure.
