Outstanding Everyday Knife
This little knife is one of my favorite every day knives. It rides perfectly well clipped to a front, back, or coin pocket in my jeans. It is made from quality materials that can take a beating, and the blade holds an edge nicely. Great balance in hand and lightweight. Worth mentioning is the Axis locking system, which I greatly prefer to a frame lock. I would recommend this knife to anybody seeking a quality knife that won't break the bank.

Right size to always have with you.
I find I carry this knife more and more for two reasons.
It's versatile, good for any cutting chore and for self defense.
This model also has the best pocket clip, holds well, but is easy to attach and remove.
Many clips are awkward to attach or remove from your pocket , and can ruin the material.
The axis locking system is wonderful, smooth opening and closing. Opening and closing is unlike other folders that require effort and snap open with force.
If you are looking for a great all- around knife to carry in your pocket or toss in your bag, this is the knife.
