Let me pteface this by saying my favorite knives to carry tend to run 3.5-4 inches. That being said, when I travel I am ofyen stuck dealing with laws allowing only sub 3 inch blades. As I carry for both utility and protection (former instructor in knife) and self defense), I was having trouble finding a knife that felt up to both sides of the coin. For years, I had fallen back on a Janich-ed Delica 4. Then I pulled the trigger on this... My first complaint is that I waited so long to but it. I admit that some of the Bastineli designs carry that mall-ninja vibe. The difference is, these knives are actually designed with end user ergos in mind, not just tacti-kewl appeal. Locks in a full 4 finger grip (just barely) for my size large hands. Further, that thumb disk really gives you great control in a saber grip. Blade slices great, especially for the thickness of the spine. Action- for a little guy it gives a greal "clack" when engaging. Seriously, check out what Mike Janich can do to a pork man with a 2.5 inch blade (edge geometry similar to this) and then figure what this little devil can deliver. Very, very happy with this "little" knife.
