Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I really love this knife. Extremely sharp out of the box. Its been my edc for months(slightly bigger than im used to) but just a great knife. The AUS 8 steel is great in my opinion. Cuts through things like butter.....cutting down cardboard boxes for work no sawing motion just straight through. Handle feels great as well. Cant wait to get the model 2!!!

Does what it says on the tin.
This is my every-day carry knife. I use it for just about anything, as one would expect. It's held its edge beautifully since I purchased it, and it came out of the box shaving sharp. It's a pretty simple knife, but it's definitely solid. The liner lock holds incredibly well; even after a little stress testing there's no give at all. The handle is comfortable in the hand, and even when it's wet it hasn't slipped from my grip. The thumb opener was stiff at first, but after playing with it a while it's loosened up to the point where I can open it nearly effortlessly. It's also not hard on my pockets when I clip it on. I've seen others on here talking about the weight as an issue - I disagree completely. I can't actually find anything bad to say about this knife. With something as simple as this, I suppose that's the idea. Great knife.

Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material, Weight, None
Great knife
It is a large knife, some might find it uncomfortable as an EDC, but it's very strong, easy to whip out at a moments notice, and came to me razor sharp right out of the box. I've seen a video review of this knife before ordering that ranks it better than Spyderco's Tenacious, and I'd have to agree so far.
