Superior design and materials in a compact, lockback knife
3-1/2'' modified reverse tanto blade - made from quality S30V stainless steel
Strong, ambidextrous AXIS blade lock
Slender aluminum handle with natural curvature
Titanium backspacer - unique tread-like shape for even more gripping power
First the pros. Very well made, no play in the blade. Very smooth opening and with practice it opens with a wrist flick.
Superior edge holding and fairly easy to sharpen considering the hard steel. It came razor sharp out of the box. Grind lines were perfect.
This my new EDC knife. Very light and flat, It'a very unobtrusive in my pocket compared with my other pocket knives.
The only cons are minor. I had to loosen the clip so it would slide smoothly. I also prefer to carry tip up and there are no provisions for this.

Better than advertised
This knife is all that I had hoped it would be. It is light and tight, not to mention very sharp. The blade material is advertised to be 154CM stainless steel. The knife I received has a blade of S30V stainless steel, which is fine with me. If you know knifes then you know the S30V stainless is one of the best knife steels on the market today. The blade locks up rock solid with no hint of play. I am a happy camper. This is a great knife in my opinion and should last for many years of hard use.
