-Price Paid: $70.00
-Used for Every Day Carry
-Owned for 6 months
I bought this knife as a replacement for an old CRKT knife and for my EDC. The knife is slightly heavy for the size but it is a solid feel. The blade is high quality in terms of thickness and length. It is easy to sharpen and holds its edge for an acceptable period of time. The blade has no rust marks and I use it daily for many tasks. The knife does simple tasks such as letter opening and box opening but it also does hardier tasks such as skinning and preparing fish, I've used it to pry small loads such as rocks out of compacted earth and it has even removed some nails. I have received no blade damage but have needed to sharpen it about three times in the six months of ownership.
The only maintenance I have done to the knife is to glue the clip screws so they don't loosen themselves and I regularly oil the blade with mineral oil. I do recommend this knife to anyone who is looking for a good EDC that they would feel safe protecting themselves with. The auto locking system feels secure and it does help to give the folding knife a fixed blade feel. Overall a great knife and one I would buy again.
