This is a great knife for hiking, camping, etc. It has a nice solid feel. Lock up is great on this knife too.


  • Size, it comes in two different sizes I believe
  • Different steel choices
  • A super light version
  • Comfortable in the pocket
  • Can handle big jobs
  • Nice secure grip
  • Great warranty
  • Sharpens easily


  • None

I had the EDC forum version of this knife, which was cool because the handles glowed in the dark and it was the XL version. This is a nice beefy knife. It can baton if you need it to. It glides open and locks solid. They also make a lighter version, but it doesn't feel as beefy as a standard version.

You can count on this knife when the chips are down.
