Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
I bought this knife as my 7 year old daughter's first knife ever. She loved it right away. The construction is top-notch, handles are quality aluminum that you can feel straight away. As for the blade, the assisted opening works flawlessly and the blade shape & length were perfect for what I wanted. It also offers a lock feature, to prevent the blade from accidentally opening, so it's twice as safe, since you have a lock to prevent it from closing and another from opening, which you can switch on/off at will.
