Typical EDC knife from company which is not famous with a good quality knives. The most typical feature is assisted opening which however work pretty good. This model is with partially serrated blade but 40% not 50% which for me is good - provide more space for plain blade cutting.
The blade is however the most thin among all of my knifes - 3.5 mm and according to length - too short by my opinion. Made by not top quality steel 4043 for me is too fragile for any more heavy duty tasks although have an aggressive and good design. The serration is pretty good and standard - do not require a special sharpening instrument as this used by Cold Steel for example.
Locking is liner lock and up to this moment - no blade play however I use knife only for lightweight tasks.
The handle is more thick than most of the common folders also with aggressive but not very comfortable design. Ends with glass breaker spike which however is very small - I test it - works but require 3-5 hits especially if you brake thicker glass. One of my concern was for reverse grab (or how you call in USA - ice pick grab) - but surprisingly, the knife is very comfortable to be hold in this position even with thumb on spike - I not feel it at all.
The handle have a grooves sideways which make it comfortable for side holding and cutting by this way.
One of mentioned disadvantage in the reviews is the luck of hole in the handle, but I personally never use this in my knives. There is a hole however, but in the clip, which is strange! The clip is good, hold knife secure in the pocket.
As whole - good looking, cheap, lightweight knife suitable for most of common every day tasks. If you use frequently a knife and want a fast opening folder, this is the choice. Definitely city folder - the blade is thin and too fragile. The thinner blade from other hand make knife more suitable for typical everyday city cutting tasks. I have a friend who is botanist and have the same - he claim, the knife is suitable for cutting plants and sample taking.
Suitable for self-defense - the end of the handle although is not very comfortable due to the "fat point design" is very suitable knife to be used as kubotan.
Good for ladies, due to assisted opening - I brought one for my girlfriend and she love it.
