Good first impression
Ed M.
I was looking for a 3.5"+ partially serrated blade with a handle length close to 4" so I could use the knife comfortably wearing work and winter gloves. My short list came down to the Presidio II and the Freek. The Presidio II looks like a great knife but the Freek was lighter in the pocket and on the wallet, so I took a chance and went with the Freek.

First impressions: excellent blade, construction and ergonomics. The handle is plastic but it's very comfortable barehanded and with gloves. It's light enough in the hand and pocket to be an EDC, although it's bulkier than my mini Grip G10.

I used the knife for yard chores this past weekend and it performed as I hoped. Nothing too heavy: Just the usual cutting and slicing to get chores done but it handled each cut easily.

My only concern is durability because I've seen reviews with the opinions that the design is less rugged than fully lined Benchmade products. But I won't know that for a while, so I'll post an update if any problems pop up. For now, though, I'm pleased with the knife and it seems like a good value.
