Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
This knife is small and very, very sharp -- perfect for an every-day carry, but definitely not a workhorse. A previous reviewer complained about the etching on the blade getting destroyed through minimal use, but I have to ask: WHAT, exactly, was he using this knife to DO?? I've had mine for a few weeks now, use it almost every day for silly things like cutting boxes and sharpening pencils, and it's absolutely fine. The one thing I really don't like is that the asst. opening mechanism doesn't work that well. Unlike my other Ken Onion knife, this one requires a slight flick of the wrist to fully extend the blade and lock it into place. To make matters worse, the knife body is really too small to have to do this: I feel like it's going to fly out of my hand every time I press the back lever. It essentially makes the knife's one-handed opening abilities a moot point.
