Made in the USA, this is a good knife, overall. The blade is a strong stainless steel and the handle is G10. The entire knife is made lighter by only having one liner (the one that does the locking). The blade is spear point, which is not the best shape for a utility knife.

The pros are, therefore, good handle material, good steel, made in USA, light weight, and fairly strong construction.

The cons are blade shape and single liner (lowers overall strength).

This is a good knife for urban EDC but I'd trade it for a small fixed blade or a stronger folder if heading to the woods. It carries easily but it is light to medium duty.
