The last 3/16" of the blade is nearly PAPER THIN. As such, this knife is not suitable for anything other than light cutting. The handle is kind of compact (read: too short) in my large hand and the scales are FAR blacker than the pretty green color of the pictured model. You will have to loosen the tension of the clip to get it out of your pocket. Three stars with conditions. Tempted to give it two stars.
