There are a number of features that I particularly like about this knife. First the D2 steel and the Tanto shape are easy to keep sharpened. Second it clips in you front pocket and just disappears, you don't know it's there until you need it. In addition the flipper knob does not wear a hole in your jeans. Third, in particular, it fits my hand and opens one handed so easily. Note that it's a right handed liner lock closure where you right thumb pushes. For a lefty you would have to pull. I should say that my hands are small so you big handed people better find one to test. You won't go wrong in buying a Milwaukee product and in this case they put some really good thought into the design. I better add that this knife is wider, with solid steel scales that will wear better than plastic --knocking around in a tool box.
