Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, None
Cons: Blade Material
I really like knives, it's sort of a hobby; so I own several of them. THIS knife will get sharper than any knife I own, even very expensive ones. Although most people are not a obsessive about sharpness I suppose. But, if you are, this is for you. First, this is more of a "gentleman's" knife. That is, it would not be a good first choice if you are a farmer, for example. A more heavy-duty knife would be more suited for that purpose.. The action (assist opening) is smooth as glass. The knife is thin and carries well, even in slacks. The only DOWNSIDE of this knife is that the blade WILL spot easily if not maintained. One must keep a thin layer of oil on the blade to prevent this, or at least watch the blade VERY carefully. Overall, I would rate this knife as FANTASTIC. The blade looks cool as heck too. I would also add that it's a little pricey, but all Damascus blades are.
