Pros: None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Sorry but this is JUNK!
At first glance this knife looks good. That's about as far as it got with me. Very hard to open and the action is rough...very rough. After working with the knife for a while I felt like I needed to take it apart. So I did just that. Let me just say...there was more dirt in this knife than on my kitchen floor. Like some one had sprinkled dirt on all of the parts of the knife before assembling. I thought this was the problem causing the opening issues and by cleaning the knife would resolve the issues. I was so wrong. It made it even harder to open. I thinking at this point that the dirt was use as a shim. (keep in mind that the tension screw is out and still hard to open) I back out the frame screw at the blade end and it would loosen up. Sorry but that's not right, there is a measurement problem. Junk!

Good for its price. Metal can't compare to the Dragonfly, but for those who do not care about shaving sharp status out of the box, this would be a good alternative to the dragonfly. I personally do not know how to make it shaving sharp, nor is the blade thin enough for me to use it like that. Some may be able to sharpen it so that it can cut newspaper like butter. I like the g10 handle to it, as it gives more weight. Others may not like heavier knives. I hate wire clips, so I like how the regular clip was put onto this. I'd give it a 3 1/2 stars but rounded it up.

Cons: None
Handy, small
The jimped choil makes it into a knife with a little blade a big handle, but is still very compact.
