Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super EDC Love this knife. I initially bought the Gerber STL 2.5, but the detent on that knife was so weak I worried the STL was going to fall open in my pocket. I ended up with this US1, and it's so much better. It's a great size, fitting in the coin pocket of most of my jeans, and light enough that I often have to double-check my pocket to make sure I remembered to bring it with me. The lock is sturdy with no play, and the rubberized handles are nice and grippy. It has a nail nick which is unnecessary - the blade can easily be opened with thumb and forefinger grabbing in the finger notch. The blade is sharp, and with a little honing on ceramic rod, was easily sharpened to a really fine edge. I like that the blade stock is not too thick. The black coating comes off pretty easily for the first several uses. It's now down to what looks like a nice black stonewash. Wash the knife blade well a few times before using it for food prep. There is about 3/4" of jimping on the top of the blade, which helps the thumb grip nicely. There's also a half stop at 90º to safely hinder the knife from closing all the way on you in one fluid motion. A great light duty EDC blade that easily goes anywhere with you, and an excellent value.
