I got this knife because I needed a good EDC that I could trust. I’ve never had a bad experience with Benchmade before. First of all, the is a pretty long knife for a folder. The aluminum textured grip feels good in the hand, in a regular or reverse grip. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I put it into my pocket, the texturing grips the fabric and makes it a little difficult to get out quickly. The pocket clip gives good retention, I feel like it’s unlikely to ever fall out by accident. When I flip open the knife, it’s got a good heft to the blade, and feels solid when it locks into place, no wiggle. All in all, it’s a solid knife, and i hope to carry it for years to come. 10/10 would recommend. A knifeless man is a lifeless man.
