Pros: Handle Feel, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
I wanted to love this knife. I love the blade shape, size, and feel in the hand. But build quality, and overall build quality is abysmal. The lock switch always switches to “safe” in pocket constantly. I learned to just hit the switch when pulling it out, worked ok for a few weeks, then it just started to rattle itself apart. Horrible blade play, even the scales themselves started to wiggle around. No amount of tinkering and loctite would fix it. This knife has potential, but it just can’t compete with other knives that can be had with better materials, and an equal, or even lesser price. This knife has been relegated to the junk drawer to live the rest of its days in exile

Just felt like it was slow to opening and the handle felt cheap. once you got the lock to work or not work it was fair. I gave it a 3. Would I buy another no.

Great knife
It seems from this review that we are talking about two different knives. Mine came as sharp as can be. The quality is EXCELLENT. Love the safety so it doesnt pop open inadvertently although the safety DOES get moved sometimes in the pocket. I have zero complaints for this knife and have been carrying it for a little over a year. I think its a well made little knife. The only con may be the size of the main body which would be dwarfed in a big mans hands.
