I'm a heavy truck mechanic (semi's). I spend alot of time laying on a creeper rolling around under thes trucks and don't want a big bulky knife in my pocket. This is perfect size for carrying while at work. I thought I would want to remove the pocket clip. I find now that it is perfect for holding the knife in a secure ready to use position and does not wonder in your pocket, always in perfect position to draw out and use with one hand. Good quality and sharpness. Will now buy it's big brother for hunting and camping.
For the price you can't beat this knife. You have to pay $200+ to get a better Auto. I have been carrying mine for over a year and I have put mine through hell and back and it's still going strong. I decided to give this knife a try after carrying a SOG for about 3 months and not being too happy with it. The SOG replaced a Benchmade that I lost and I didn't want to spend another $200+ on a everyday carry that I used at work. I gave the SOG a try because it was a little less than the Benchmade. Wasted my money, I could have bought 3 of these for what the SOG cost me. Truth is I also prefer this knife over the Benchmade as a everyday carry because I don't have to worry about loosing or messing up an expensive knife. Plus these knives are damn good knives. So good that I just bought 2 more, another one of these just in case and the larger 3.25 inch blade with the black handle.
My wife needed a knife and she wanted an auto I picked this up for her. She absolutely loves it she wants me to buy her the Tiffany blue one once it is released.
Great EDC for the price. Ease of use and operation ideal very smooth. Size it fits well in the hand.
