This knife is the perfect knife me as a public edc. The blade is not too long, the compression lock keeps your fingers away from the blade, and you can deploy the knife easily with one hand.
The only negative I could find was a minor hot spot / sharp point near the back cut out near the bottom of compression lock, but it is so minuscule some fine grit sandpaper would probably do the trick. You can only feel when pressing the compression lock down near the bottom.
I compared it to the G10 yojimbo and that cut point at the bottom of the compression lock is much more comfortable, so it may just be the handle material.
Overall very great knife.
