To my surprise, I got this knife sent to me via U.S. Overnight Express Mail. It came in an oversized box and well packed.
First impression: Gadzooks, one huge puppy!
The knife is so large, blade is a whopping 10.5" in length. I can't find a place to carry it on me. The blue pocket clip is way tooo large for any pocket. But, I must say, very nice color to the clip.
For the blade, it takes more than a thumb to open it...more like the whole hand!
Has a very solid lock up. It takes my whole body weight to release the lock so I can close it. This I like very much so. You NEVER have to worry about it accidently closing on you. I always say, the stronger the lock the better.
As far as the blue G10 handle goes, perfectly done! It has a very nice finish to it, edges of the handle are rounded off nicely making it smooth but yet has enough texture to the main surface for griping. Course, don't know how I am ever going to get a grip on it to actually use!
Overall, I like this knife very much so. A little bit smaller it needs to be though. Geez, I never thought I would hear the day that I said I wanted a smaller knife
P.S. I have a bridge to sell if anyone is interested.
Sorry Spark, had to to do this, inside joke on the Spyderco Forum!
