These knife looks pretty amazing in both the description page and in real life. It's got a sleek curve to it that just make it look cooler than a regular boring old knife. Don't get me wrong, I generally go with function over looks, but this has both plus a few extra utility options. There is a push button assist that helps flip it open and a safety catch to keep it open that you flip back to close...pretty standard. When closed that side can be used to break glass in an emergency. My only real complaint is that it is pretty bulky. Very large in size, almost to the point that this is definitely not going in my pocket but likely needs to be worn on a belt or stashed in a backpack.
