Bad point imo. We also used horses for centuries. Then we invented engines and never looked back. Same about knives. Yes you could be fine with an Opinel or slip joint, but why the hassle ? Why using outdated design when you can have something like a mini-grip or a DF G10 for slightly more than 100$ ? The only reason I have an opinel is too put it in my car. If it get stolen, I could care less.
