Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Cons: Handle Material, None
I am very impressed with this knife. I bought this particular one to sort of test the product. Though they are comfortable, I am not a huge fan of the FRN handles, but it is a sub-30 dollar made in the USA knife! In any case, I like it enough that I plan on upgrading to a S30V model, and I will pass this one along to a friend. Really, assuming the handles on the more expensive versions are really better, this knife could give the Endura a run for it's money for my favorite daily carry folder of all time. I like the deep pocket carry, it opens with authority, and while I prefer S30V, I don't have any problem with the steel. I also don't typically like flippers, but darned if this one doesn't work like a charm. Buck earned me back as a customer with this knife!
