This was a knife I wasn't sure about until I handled it. On paper, it seems too heavy & perhaps not so comfortable. However, it is comfortable in the hand. It's basically a frame-lock & the corrugated G-10 allows for great grip W/O tearing up your pocket.
The blade shape is a low belly Clip blade, which is quite useful. Blade steel is S30V & this is one of Spyderco's Taiwan made knives, which means the build quality is excellent.
The knife specs at over 5 oz., but actually feels lighter & the low-rider clip is very well thought out. It does what it needs to do (Conceal well), but your pocket won't bunch where the clip & handle meet.
Overall this is an excellent folder. The only thing I wish it had was Ti on the lock side, but otherwise, it is fine the way it is.

Be happy its a steel on steel framelock...Ti on steel wears out very, very quickly and creates slop, meaning the knife gets sent back to the manufacturer for repairs quicker...
