While sitting on a couch the knife opened on its own and the blade was sticking out at a 90 angle from the handle. Someone pointed it out, and when i reached for it it sliced open my hand. Clearly this is a design flaw and because of it i cant recommend this knife.
There's not pocket clip or any easy way to attach one. That's not a flaw, its just the design of the knife and its clearly stated in the product description, so I wouldn't knock any stars off for that. But carrying it in your pocket with the "open" or "minimalist" handle is funny; the blade edge is certainly more exposed than with a traditional folder. I'm afraid that something (like a fold of cloth) could get wedged in between the handle and blade. I also worry about carrying it in a pocket along with change or keys; I think a dime or penny could easily slip into that little space. Please note that this has NOT occurred but I can't help wondering about it.
It was not clear to me that the circle in the middle also acts as a carabiner, that is an alternative to a pocket clip if you don't mind the knife showing when you carry it.
The only real problem is that the cutting edge is quite small for a knife of this size. I guess a folder usually has an edge that's just under half of its length. This knife has an edge that's only about 2.25 inches, compared to an overall length of about 8 inches. It seems like a big knife to have such a small blade.
If you like this design you should also consider the CRKT Van Hoy Snap Lock. I have that one too and while I like them both, I prefer the Snap Lock and think its more functional.
Thanks Mr. Hitchcock and CRKT.

By far the sharpest knife I've purchased, I do wish it was easier to open with one hand, otherwise great!!Published on January 17, 2014 by GARY
This knife is real sharp right out the box. Sometimes when you go to sit it acts like it wants to come open.Published on November 3, 2011 by Billy G
I owned the Van Hoy Snap Lock knife before and it was a great minimal knife with a unique opening mechanism. When it needed replacing, I saw this one and had to get it. Read morePublished on December 4, 2010 by ohraley
