Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
I am an avid sailor on small craft, so I find this tool very useful. The Marlinspike is the best I've ever worked with. The small blade is impervious to saltwater corrosion, yet very sharp. It appears small, but it really is all I can imagine as a companion to the Marlinspike. The engineering and design of this pocket knife are the best I have owned. The blade borrows from the Chris Reeve liner lock but is better finished. The ball bearing lock is a modern marvel. The price may cause pause, but once you get this in your hand, use, and examine it, you'll know you have a bargain. There are not any flaws in this knife in terms of quality, design, and utility.
