Of note: the knife was very well packed. It also shipped and arrived quicker than expected. A+ seller! (it was sold by Alpine Tactical Mercator Black Cat Carbon Knife and Fulfilled by Amazon.)
I was not expecting much from the folded steel handle, but it turns out to be more substantial and comfortable than I had expected. The painted finish seems durable, despite some reports to the contrary. Only time will tell.
Despite its slim profile, the Mercator has a hefty feel. When open, it balances about 3/8" aft of the second pin. Despite its considerable length, nearly 4 1/2" closed, the slim profile lets it ride comfortably in the pocket. Whether it is legal in your state is another matter.
The carbon steel blade takes a decent edge, and is easy to sharpen. At first, I thought the blade might be stainless, as slicing a half dozen apples did not leave a mark, but now it is beginning to take a patina. There is a stainless version, if patina is not your thing. The blade is easy to pinch open without resorting to the nail nick, and locks up solidly without any play. There is a wire bail at the pommel end.
I like carrying the Mercator. It is a great apple slicer, and more than adequate at cutting cigars. It is just tough enough, I might trust it to pop open a frozen car door.
