Super tough and lightweight...
This is one mean knife. It is very lightweight and it clips to your pocket for easy access. I really like the lockable blade. The stainless steel is a must and won't corrode or rust. It fits nicely in your pocket if you don't use the clip. It needs very little sharpening. I have used the knife to cut 16 gauge wires. You can open it with one hand whether you're a righty or lefty. I see this Benchmade knife lasting forever.
