Are you still using your wal-mart or gas station folder that is dull and has a bunch of dings in the blade? well throw it away and get one of these! I know a lot of guys on here who are knife enthusiasts will know about the Ontario Rat model 1 but there are guys and gals who aren't and are in need of a good folder. I believe the knife is an consequential part of ones EDC and having a good knife is just as important, however not everyone has the change to spend on a Benchmade Contego. I am just as addicted to knives as I am guns and have bought some high dollar folders such as Benchmade, Spyderco, and Zero Tolerance but on a day to day basis I find myself carrying this $28 folder a lot more, and I think the reason for that is I'm not as protective of it as I am my ZT 0566. Some quick specs of this blade: 3.5 inch FFG blade in Aus-8 steel which I find to be a pretty decent steel, it has good edge retention and is easy enough to put an edge on especially if you have one of the Spyderco Sharpmakers. The knife comes crazy sharp out of the box, it will slice paper and shave hairs with ease. The handle scales I believe are imitation g10 but offer good grip. The spine has very sharp Gimping that will help you control the blade while doing heavy cutting tasks. The pocket clip is four side adjustable and can be configured for tip up or down carry and it rides pretty deep in the pocket. I find this knife to be an incredible value and can do any cutting task you will run into throughout your day as well as be a defensive back-up for your pistol (god forbid). If you need a good folder for EDC go get one of these for the cost or of course a Spyderco Tenacious!
