I’m not a knife collector. To me a knife is a tool. Although it does occur to me that I do have a couple of collectible knives so maybe I am a collector. Hmm, who knew? I got the Smith & Wesson CH0016 Bullseye Folding Linerlock last September and it has been a work horse. It was about a third of the price of this knife and I find it easier to open one handed than this knife. With that said, this still seems like a nice quality knife. The double lock feature makes sense for a hard working knife. I’m quite fond of my fingers. The deeply textured handle provides a secure grip. I do find one handed opening on this somewhat problematic. Perhaps I have a wimpy thumb. The clip is placed very near the top which allows the knife to be positioned deeper in the pocket. I like that feature, the S&W knife’s clip allows entirely too much sticking out and thus it tends to catch on things. Overall, a good quality blade with solid features.
