Not as good as the F1
Listen, I am a spyderco guy but this knife is not as good as the f1. The blade is thinner and worst of all it is not full tang. for that reason it does not balance well in the hand. But after all that, it still is a syderco and it still is vg10 steel, so this is a great knife. The best part of this knife is how the sheath is made, it is form fitted to the knife and is a great feature. It comes sharp as you can get out of the box, just like everything else you get from spyderco. This is a lighter fixed blade, which may be good or bad depending on what you have in mind. For a one knife to do all chores, I would go with a full tang heavy knife. But if you are looking for a capable cutter and just about the best tactical fixed blade you can find, this would be a great great choice. When I go on my morning walks I choose this over the f1 because the f1 is noisier and slightly heavier to carry. It is nice to have the 2, but if I could only have one it would be the Fallkniven f1, sorry spyderco make a fix blade like the f1 and I will by it just because I'm such a huge fan of your brand. great knives!!
