Blade length - 3.5 inches Overall length- 7.75 inches Weight - 3.9 oz. Blade Steel - AUS 6M Handles - textured Zytel Lock type - Liner with LAWKS First Impressions: I saw this in the Smokey Mountain Knife Works catalog for $17.99 and it was just too good to pass up for that price. I have the fixed blade version of this knife so I was well aware of what I was ordering, someone else may have a bit of a surprise waiting when it arrives. The most unusual feature of the blade is the inch at the tip, it is ground to a very steep bevel that is not quite sharp. This is Nealy's special penetrating point. Some people may not like it as it makes the tip of the knife not really usable for EDC chores. However, I think it could very easily be reprofiled with a good sharpening system like the Lansky, especially one with diamond hones. I would probably do this if I carried this blade for every day. I worked with this knife for a few days while putting in a new front door and screen door. I used it to cut all sorts of things including wood, packing straps, rope, tape, screen and the edge held up very well. Plus' - There is a lot here for a $20 knife that is for sure. Start out with the Pesh Kabz design and that is a good start, especially in a defensive weapon. The pentrating tip really does penetrate well, I drove it through severallayers of panaling and a leather covered padded "arm" quite easily. I am a very vocal critic of liner locks, but this one has the LAWKS and that helps a lot with safety. The "flipper" is something new to me, but it works very well once you get used to it, opening the knife very quickly and easily. Engaging and disengaging the LAWKS is very easy with the thumb. The Zytel handles are very well textured, in fact, at first I thought they were G10 and not Zytel at all. They have a denser feeling than other zytels I have. The knife has a very solid heft to it overall. The pocket clip is long, and strong and held in place by three screws. The blade tensions nicely with the torx pivot screw. Cleaning should be a snap with all of the screws to take it apart easily. Minus - The handle is a tad short for my medium large hand. It is not uncomfortable, but just "close feeling" the way it is contoured The pentrating tip is not real handy as it is for every day cutting. Overall, you are, if you get it, getting one heck of a lot of knife for $20.
