juuuuuuuusssssssttttt about perfect
ok, i love this knife! i have been carrying it everyday for the past year or so, and i absolutely love it! the carbon fiber actually provides a pretty good grip (at least what you would need for an edc/ lightweight utility or emergency defensive knife), and the carbon fiber looks awesome. s30v steel is great, I oviously cant complain about it, and the blade shape is the classic spyderco leaf shape(which i think is perfect.) i also love the deployment on this knife compared to my older tenacious, which opened decently, but with the sage it opens as quick as flicking it with a thumbstud! the pocket clip is also great, but that is the reason i rated this knife juuuusst about perfect. the idea behind having the thin wire clip is great(it honestly looks like you are carrying a pen in your pocket instead of a knife), but spyderco could have made it a little higher up on the handle so the knife doesnt stick out of your pocket at all. Im sure a lot of people wouldnt care about that, but its just my personal opinion. also, i noticed after carrying this knife for a while, there was a couple times that i hit my waist on a wall or the corner of a chair or desk etc, and I hit the pocket clip of the knife against it, which made it slightly move out of place. this wasnt a big deal as i just took the knife out of my pocket and pushed it back into place with my finger, but that isnt something that should occur with a regular pocket clip such as the older spyderco, bechmade, or ontario clips. dont let that stop you from buying this knife though, because almost everything about this knife is perfect and i havent had a single problem with it besides being stupid(myself being stupid that is, and knocking the clip against a wall corner or whatever and not paying attention to it.) and knocking the pocket clip out of place. otherwise.......buy this freaking knife and you will not be dissapointed!
