A great small inexpensive pocket knife
The Wharncliffe blade is great for most home and office cutting tasks. The knife is small and you need an attached lanyard to effectively lengthen the knife for easy flipping . The frame lock locks up very securely. I highly recommend it.

Likable
I really love the design of this knife. The titanium handles are a big plus especially in this price range. The blade shape just begs to be put to work. At 1.3 ounces you wont know you are even carrying it. It is very small so those with large hands may fumble around with it. My particular example does not flip open fully no matter how hard I try. I suspect the pivot will need adjustment. The big drawback to me with this knife is the frame lock. I cannot disengage it without digging my thumbnail into it. The blade grind is mostly even, decently sharp, and the centering is virtually spot on.

A great small inexpensive pocket knife
The blade shape and size is what attracted me to this knife. It is a great buy for the money. However, the rest of the story; I have no experience with knife flipping and in learning to flip this knife the frame locked up so tight that it required a small screwdriver to free it. Every subsequent time I flipped the knife it locked up tight. The knife is still usable but cannot be flipped.

Flawed but Usable
I was primarily attracted to this knife because of the small Wharncliffe blade. Wharncliffes are very useful for daily errand type tasks and this one promised to nestle almost invisibly in the pocket - which it does. The blade is fine - it is adequately sharp. There are two problems with it - the flipper mechanism is very difficult to make work, even after adding drops of gun oil and working it open and closed a zillion times. At least half the time when you flip, nothing happens at all, or the blade half opens. Actually, you can't say that "nothing happens at all". Because the rear part of the scale is so diminutive, and because the scale surface is smooth, it is very easy to simply launch the little knife across the room. I think it is a stretch to classify this knife as a "flipper", and it would actually be friendlier to use without the flipper protruberance. You just have to accept that you have to open it with two hands, and close it with two hands, and make VERY sure you've got it locked open before cutting anything. It looks like this knife may have been discontinued, which is no great loss. Even at a discount $32 is steep for something like this - other than the Wharncliffe option, looking at the little Brownings at half the price may be a better choice.
