What can I say about this knife you probably haven’t already heard.  This is a quality knife.  The knife opens smoothly, feels nice in your hands and is just an all around great knife.  I like the double locking feature of the knife, but it might not be your first choice for EDC, but again not sure if it is really designed for that.  This is more of a knife that is built to take abuse.  Once you get the concept of closing the knife, you can close it with one hand which might make it an EDC choice.

The knife does have some weight to it which makes it feel solid.  The smooth opening of the knife and when the knife locks into positions, it just sounds tough. Once you hear the knife fully engage, you will pretty much grab anyone’s attention in your area.
