The best slip joint currently made. Light ergonomic. Was sharp when it arrived but could have been sharper so I sharpened it and I got a hair shaving edge in about 30 minutes which it has retained now for a couple or three weeks - it doesn’t have a hard life! The scales are lovely to hold smooth yet grippy. Yes the edge is thick so shaving wood is not its best use - if that’s what you’re into buy one of those giant scalpel blade knives. This is a genius design (I have the wharncliffe bladed) and cuts fruit, plant cuttings, parcels, and I wouldn’t have another. Just one point, it’s so light in your pocket put a nice lanyard on so you can get it out easily and it will help snag it if it makes a break for freedom, it’s too expensive to lose. Contrary to many reviews on this knife I don’t have an issue with it not springing shut easily as I consider that to be a safety issue much safer to have a knife that is predictable. I don’t see any advantage in having a knife snap shut. If you use a slip joint knife correctly - not as a stabbing device - it is very safe. In fact, if it snapped shut and you used it incorrectly you are far more likely to cut yourself. Go on, get one before they move onto the mark 2.
