A serious knife for a serious purpose!
This knife is designed solely for self defense. The design of the blade down to the way the knife is held. For this purpose the knife is excellent.The G10 handle is nice and grippy but not so much that it will tear up your jeans or dress pants. The chrome clip is nice because it always stays looking nice. The clip has 4 different positions to be placed on the knife. The blade came super sharp like I have come to expect a Spyderco to be, (hair shaving sharp)! As for the the deployment the tension on the blade stops it from quickly deploying. It caused me to use the clip to hold onto for support but that led to the 3 screws in the clip to be tightened often. That wore out the screws so I contacted Spyderco and they happily replaced the screws for me. All in all I like the knife for its purpose but it is limited in its daily use. As always Knife Center was very quick and a pleasure to deal with, that's why I am a repeat customer. I hope this helps you out if your considering this knife.
