This knife is fantastic! It fits so well in my large glove size hand. The cut out for the index finger and the curve toward your pinkie on the bottom of the knife really locks it into place in your hand. The Micarta gives your finger tips a really comfortable place to land. Opening the knife was slightly stiff when I first got it, but fidgeting the knife open and close while I’m watching tv or what not has made it smooth to open and close in a pretty short amount of time. I love the shape of the blade, it’s just gorgeous . A lot of cutting surface and the way the tip points down is useful for many tasks. Love how the blade snaps open and snaps closed. I sold a large Inkosi that I felt was a little too big for my preference of EDC size. But the small Inkosi is perfection to me. I’m extremely pleased with my purchase.
