So this is a near perfect knife. Despite its Chinese build location, the knife has excellent fit and finish, and feels strong. The design is the knife's strongest asset, for a 2.25 inch blade, the handle is built to allow for all 4 fingers to make it on there. The thumb ramp is steep and well jumped, and the blade shape is fantastic with a good bit of belly. The knife has nice steel liners with G10 over top, no complaints there, although the knife is pretty heavy for its size, but it does feel extremely durable, which is rare in such a small knife. you can put the clip however you want and it has a nice lanyard hole. Phosphor bronze bushings as well for a smooth open. All perfection, especially at the $30-$35 price point. My big and only complaint is the blade steel. 8cr13mov is not a high quality steel, I find it to dull easily (although it does sharpen easily), and its not super rust resistant. I wish they would keep the scales, handle, design, blade shape, everything else the same, and just raise the steel quality to a 154cm or VG-10. I would pay the extra $10 bucks for the quality blade, and that would make this thing a dream. Regardless, its an excellent EDC knife, very sheeple friendly. I do not reccomend this for combat usage, its very small and does not have a tactical blade shape whatsoever. Although it'd still be better than nothing, if you want something tactical go pick up a Cold Steel recon or something along those lines. Just my 2 cents on this ambitious little knife!

This knife is a workhorse in a small package. I've abused this little guy and it still operates with smooth action. I like the feel in hand, but the handle is a little small when you're doing something where you really need to bear down. I'd rate it a great value for the money. This is my first Chinese made Spyderco and I see nothing wrong with it.
