I'm not a knife guy. I read a lot of reviews by guys that appear to have money to burn on buying knives and a large closet to keep them in. I always carry a small pocket knife due to a severe lack of finger nails. This blade is substanially bigger than my fingar nails. During the recent Sandy debacle I was trying to hold up a 15' evergreen with a rope looped around it. I needed to cut the rope while continuing to keep the tree from blowing over in the driving rain. I was able to pull this knife out of my jeans due to the very nice clip which kept it accessible. Then I was able to get it open with one hand while still keeping the *&%)# tree from pulling me over. The blade holds a great edge and two short strokes the rope was cut, I was able to tie the tree off and get out of the rain and wind. So a larger knife is handy, this is a good one at a great price. Now if they make one that is one quarter the weight I might be able to clip it to something besides jeans. I recommend the knife.
