I've carried a pocket knife for 45 yrs. and this is my favorite by far of the 50 or so that I've gone through. It has every feature that I look for in an EDC. It's slim with its frame lock feature. The pocket clip is on the back end so it's already in the right position for opening. It flicks open with barely a twitch of your finger on the knob, comparable to spring assisted I've had. It's also well built, sturdy and very stylish. This knife is better than several that I paid 4 times as much for. LOVE IT!
