I can't recall the reason that I purchased this well over a year ago. It probably had something to do with the other Launches that I have purchased and liked them. It fun to play with when I'm singing Bennie and the Jets or The Jet Song from WSS. I don't carry this because the blade is very flimsy. Everything else, except maybe the ergos- the handle is on the small side- is great. I don't know if I would have purchased it if I had an opportunity to hold it. If you want a fun knife that won't be tested for strength, then this just might be the ticket for you.
