"They are right when they say that Pro-Tech has certain snap. This thing is mean. The quality is amazing. The blade comes razor sharp out of the box, and holds an edge. I love the aluminum smooth handle. Very slick. I consider this my gentleman's EDC."

Kevin C. says…

"Not a single person I showed this to could figure out how to open it. The slide is a little stiff, which is how it should be. That keeps it from accidentally opening in your pocket. It fires fast and strong, but it's not so much that it jumps out of your hand. The blade takes a good edge and keeps it. This is one of the best knives I own."

Clifford B.

"I thought the extra length of this knife might make it uncomfortable to carry, but no. I hardly notice it's there when clipped in my jeans pocket. That bit of extra length combined with the shape of body provide an excellent grip for a pocket knife. I don't feel the need for any textured surfaces. The overall quality is outstanding and the design is brilliant."
