The beautiful, minimalist design is a wonder of functionality; while deceptively simple in appearance, this knife represent a huge array of design breakthroughs and a staggering amount of performance! The Hold Out II is a beautiful satin polished blade that are extremely broad and are flat ground from the spine, with a shallow "V" cross-section culminating in a razor sharp hand-honed edge. Continuously curved from the heel to the needle-sharp tip, the blade cuts and shears through tough and fibrous material with ease and makes short work of tasks. Its American G-10 handle is a wonder of ergonomic design, allowing a full and secure four-finger grip. It is wonderfully secure in hand and will not roll or twist with use. The grip enhancing G-10 and handle holes further aid traction in a wide range of grips, working equally well tip up, down in an "ice pick" grip or even held like a push dagger! Incredibly thin and flat, with an ambidextrous pocket clip designed for deep carry, even the largest of the Hold Out series is easily concealed in a pocket, clipped into a waistband or tucked into a boot. The blade and handle geometry and the positioning of the TRI-AD lock in the Hold Outs came together perfectly. Working together to create a knife whose strength versus weight ratio stunned even our own research and development team!.

Based off of a scottish dagger design, i would think the blade would be soley defense oriented like a switchblade, but surprisingly, this is a very effective utility blade.
Blade- With its full flat grind it slices cardboard very easily. Whittles wood, slices paper, chops ok for its weight. The stick i am holding was one hit. It tapers evenly to the tip and is very needle sharp but sturdy enough. The edge is actually pretty thin, unlike a ka bar or srk sabre grind, if you like spydercos flat grind try this one. The thumb studs are round and not irritating. The three grooves on the spine are actually good jimping. The blade coating is very resilliant to scratches and wear, looks cool, although gathers finger prints easily. The xhp steel seems more wear resistant than vg1, ive tested the factory edge on 2 boxes, 4 dry sticks, and slicing a patch of overgrown grass as well as over 75 push cuts through a dead usb cable and it treetops after a stroping. I stabbed it into a tree a few times and no tip damage, but not prying.
Xhp is tough. It holds an edge. And it is easy to maintain.
(Mine has a qc issue of the edge grind not being finished but it will sharpen into an edge eventually.) Overall this beats a cheap stainless defense oriented knife hands down other than price obviously, and this knife made xhp my favorite list along with zdp, m4, m390, amd n690 ( not as wear resistant as the first 3 but still very good). Product made in taiwan.
Handle- ok, qc issue, mine clicks when i squeeze near the lock pin the g 10 looks a little warped. Overall non qc complaint is i would reccomend taking sandpaper to the inside edges of the handle before hard use, otherwise good g 10 traction. Tri ad is not needed to explain its the best lockback, and any lock for safety. It is a third thinner than my benchmade adamas.
The thumb stud is too small not even proportion on both side and finally, it is made in Taiwan. Other than that the knife is comfortable and easy to carry because the handle is slim, the only drawback is the lock cannot be closed by a single hand.
Update, May 2017
I return the knife and purchase a new one this time the blade is easy to unlock every time I close it.
I compare my hold out II to my Recon 1, by doing a finger test.
My recon 1 cut me right away in just a single finger test.Meanwhile, the Holdout II, I tried a couple of times but it did not cut me at all. I guess the recon knives are more sharper than hold outs'
Overall, I love it.
