Pros: Handle Feel, Handle Material, Overall Quality
Yes, it is as good as it looks
Yes, the lock seems rock-solid, but honestly I didn’t buy it just for that reason. All the other locks on my knives have been quite secure. I finally decided to buy this one because the handle is gorgeous, the knife has some nice weight without being too wide, and I like the blade shape. The handle has a good texture to it—not slippery. The blade is centered and is almost completely enclosed in the handle, making the flipper necessary. It has a very secure detent and requires some pressure to exercise the flipper but then it pops out fast and locks up with vault-like confidence. I was skeptical about the “glass breaker”, wondering if it might be too sharp or a risk in my pocket but so far so good. Yes, the box is crap but I didn’t buy it for the box. This is one unique knife at a good price point.
