Stonewashed S30V version
This is Ken Onions best and most original design.
The good: USA made, S30V stonewashed blade, Flat front half and recurve second half of blade, Draws in material and stays sharper longer due to the grind of the blade, Machined 3D G-10 aids in grip and asthetics, Fast strong speedsafe opening, Easily closed with one smooth arch of the thumb, Stud lock is reliable and strong with zero bladeplay, Safety switch is a nice touch if you need to store it(pretty child safe too).
The bad: A little heavy(5.4oz) to carry in light pants i.e. summer shorts or slacks, Clip is oversized and hard on the eyes, Thick handles are uncomfortable in the pocket, Takes some skill to sharpen due to the recurve of the blade.
Final words: Great to use, annoying to carry.
