Pros: Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening
Wish I'd not bought it.
Good: The blade shape is a delight. Sturdy, clean lines, and the shark's tooth tip means back-cuts have more effect.Bad: I do not like G10 scales. It's almost always too grippy to allow for easy extraction from pockets/etc. David C indicated these were NOT as grippy as some G10, so I went for it, and wish I had not.Also, there's a strong bias towards closed on this knife: you cannot drop it open ice-pick style, the thumbstuds are brutal, and you're left with a really aggressively jimped flipper or the lock-release flick, which requires a hand position that's not as positive grip-wise as I'd like. And the QC on this isn't great: the flipper action is slow and you can almost feel a sand-in-the-gears sort of grating within the pivot. If I'd paid "usual SOG prices" (somewhere near the $80s, maybe) I wouldn't be so dismayed, but at "Benchmade prices", I'm pretty seriously disappointed.
