Pros: Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Very Capable & Handy
As large as this knife is, it's still dwarfed by the massive Hold Out I in size & blade geometry but still wins points with handle 'grippiness', speed & quality of manufacture. While slightly easier to conceal & deploy then its larger cousins, the trick is to be sure of the liner lock engaging FULLY before attempting use(listen for the obvious 'click'). A small amount of touch-up on a strop or fine stone keeps this inexpensive blade serviceable & ready for action. Be sure to get another as a spare & try the smaller brother also-both very capable for the price.

Cons: None
A great large knife that is very light and well built.
I am a knife collector and I have a variety of mid-tech Flipper knives as well as many custom knives. As with many knife collectors I can appreciate each and every purchase. But as many of you may know when you receive your knives you think yourself this would be a perfect knife (except, if this was done a little differently). This was not the case with this knife. Well I was quite shocked when I received the Smith & Wesson CK 114L. First of all, I like large knives, and this knife comes in at 11 inches overall length with a 4.9 inch dagger type blade (the top swedge is unsharpened.) For a large knife this is extremely light it 5.3 ounces. I have the blade deployment down perfect now with a little loosening of the pivot screw and lubrication and then set with Loctite in the perfect position. The blade came sharp but now I have it razor-sharp with a little bit of stropping. To be honest I don't know the quality of the stainless steel that is used in this knife. I'm sure it is not any one of the "super steels" but I'm pretty sure it will retain a decent edge. The knife blade can be deployed by using the wave feature just like the Emerson knives, the thumb stud works and snaps the blade open with little effort. The mini-Flipper on top is too small to be considered as a real Flipper, but with a little wrist action it snaps open as well. The liner lock works great and is easy to disengage without any sticking right out-of-the-box. The grip on this knife is what really impresses me. If you want a knife that you can use with wet or dry hands this is absolutely perfect. This is my new EDC and to be honest it is the least expensive knife that I have purchased. I read someplace that the smile would be discontinued so I purchased four copies just to be on the safe side. You can't go wrong with this knife. If you like large knives that look cool, are light, and work perfectly with a slight tweaking then this is the one. This knife has the retro look of the switchblades used back in the 50s and 60s but is a liner lock and built very strongly.

Well-made, large folding dagger
This knife is excellent, particularly for the $15.00 price tag! It opens smoothly and locks up solidly. The only quibble, and it's a tiny one for the price and quality, is that it arrived quite dull. But some work on my Ken Onion sharpener, and the blade is scary-sharp now. The latching was a little stiff, but as others have also reported, the knife opens smoothly with a little use and good lubricant. The pocket clip clamps tightly; this could be an issue, both in drawing the knife quickly and by wearing out clothing. This is a BIG knife, and could easily be considered to be a "weapon," so please carry carefully and check your local laws. At 5 inches, it falls directly between the small and the large Ti-Lites, and to me is an ideal size and about 1/6 the cost.
