Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $59

This is one of my all time favorite everyday carry utility type knives. The handle at 4 1/8" is not big yet provides a very secure and comfortable grip. It is a full 1/2" in thickness so it is not a thin knife but that width in the handle makes it very comfortable to bear down hard during a cut.

The blade is a drop point at just under 3", has an appealing shape and enough belly in the curve to give it versatile cutting characteristics. The handle material is grippy and lightweight. Good blade steel that is not difficult to resharpen. Last but not least is the ambidextrous and dependable axis-lock.

This knife is presented as a tactical design but I use it mainly in my work as a carpenter and would more comfortably describe it as an all around locking blade utility folder.
