The SOG Terminus is a solid, modern slipjoint. It's a great combination of a two-handed opening knife without a lock, and the materials and finish of a modern EDC pocket knife.
This means you use two hands to open the Terminus. When opened, the blade is held in place by a slipjoint-style lock. This ensures the blade stays where it should, but it isn't completely locked. As a result, you can legally carry the Terminus in many places in Europe.
The choice of materials and design are quite unique for a slipjoint. You don't often see a G10 handle with a pattern like this on a knife that you can legally carry in so many places. The type of steel, CTS-BD1, is also an unusual occurrence in this class. So it is really a pure EDC knife with the benefits of a two-handed slipjoint. Highly recommended for anyone who travels a lot.

Be aware I am NOT a knife expert. I wanted a UK legal knife that didn't look too flash, nondescript for general purpose use. Flatish and easy to keep in the pocket of a bag. General use is very unexciting, picnics, a bit of whittling, opening boxes, misusing the blade for for levering stuff etc etc. So how has it done? Great!! Its sturdier than it looks, the little lump sticking helps you to stop it closing (it does not lock which is not really allowed unless your using it as a proper tool I guess). Its a tough little thing, comfortable to hold for medium sized hands. GVFM.
