It's a really great knife but probably not for everyone. I bet most people will prefer a larger locking knife. For my purposes this is perfect, I would give it 9.5/10. It is of course not as heavy duty as a locking folder but tougher than traditional slipjoint knives and while it is very compact in the pocket it feels comfortable in the hand. The fit and finish is flawless. The blade has a really nice stonewash. I also like this steel, it holds an edge but it's still easy enough to sharpen. After a short break in time mine is super smooth and despite being a non-locking knife it won't close as long as you hold it and apply pressure on the spring. I also like the fact that you can quite easily swap out the scales and totally change the look of the knife. The only negative thing I can come up with is the clip, it often gets stuck on my pocket. So it really depends on what you want. If you are looking for a high-quality, small non-locking folder then I would definitely recommend this. If you want basically the same functionality but on a smaller budget then the Spyderco Pingo is a good choice. And if you like the look but rather want a locking knife then TRM also has the Class Action flipper.
