This is a really well designed knife with some extremely intriguing concept as well as features. The lightweight is among its major marketing factors, I would certainly simply like if the side angle is a little bit a lot more aggressive, and a somewhat even more robust tang.The cost is practical too (Based on spyderco requirement).
