This little knife makes the perfect every day carry. The first thing I did was lose the pocket clip, not because anything was wrong with it, but because of the knife having the extended tang to open it. I purchased a very nice leather pocket slip from Etsy to use for carry instead.

The blade is very functional for all uses except for cutting up food as it does not have a drop point (it still works for that purpose though). I am happy with the blade steel, it can take a shaving sharp edge and keep it for a while. I strop mine using the extra fine belt on my Work Sharp Ken Onion Edition knife sharpener so its always ready to go.

The one thing I did was tighten the pivot down for a little extra resistance to opening. Between the extra tension and the way the tang is designed, you would be hard pressed to have the blade accidentally close on you if you are gripping the handle correctly.

The nicest thing about this knife is that its the perfect size, the blade to handle ratio is optimal (like a Benchmade 940) and it is very sheeple friendly as it never draws a raised eyebrow in an office environment. In a perfect world the steel could have been SV35n or Maxamet but this is one highly capable EDC knife as is.
