Just got this today from JS Burly's. Not more than two minutes after opening it, I put it to work opening other goodies that I got the same day to get a good idea of what it's capable of. First impression from initially handling the knife; it's much smaller than I initially thought it would be, but feels very solid and has a "heft" to it for being so small and slender. Opening it one handed was a bit tricky, as the slender size made it a bit harder to have a good hold and open it at the same time. Blade is chisel ground and has a solid lock up with a liner lock. Pocket clip feels like it holds well, and it comes with an additional screw on end to make it look more like a pen. Closed length is approx. 4 inches, blade length is approx. 1.5 inches , and OAL is 5.75 inches.

I used the tip to score the plastic package to start an opening. It worked much like an exacto blade or a scalpel. Once the opening was started, I used the recurve portion of the blade to cut along the edge of the package by pulling it along. It kept a nice clean straight cut all around the package and made short work of the plastic.

I'm not sure about the self defense applications, but the utility of this knife will fill a great spot for my EDC, especially at work where I need to open various types of packages or need a precise cutting tool where a general purpose pocket knife would only do a mediocre job.
