If you like a small knife I guess they are ok, but "I" wouldn't pay much more then 25 bucks for one.

Don't buy that knife from that seller. You will be getting majorly ripped off imo.

I like it but no safety is a deal killer for me after I had a Pro-tech Newport open in my pocket.

Looks like the newer ones now have a safety.

I like a safety on an auto but it's not a deal breaker for me unless the buttons not flush. I've carried an auto sense they changed the law in Indiana but I've never had one go off in my pocket. Guess I've been lucky!

That's part of the problem of the Pro-tech Newport is the button is not completely flush. I have a Pro-tech Godson that the button is flush and while I still would not carry it loose in my pocket, I wouldn't worry about it clipped to my pocket, especially if wearing jeans which typically have tighter pockets.

I don't carry any knife that doesn't have a pocket clip. Got tired of wedging change out of them with a screwdriver, but that's been years ago before they were common like they are today.

I received mine in the mail today. It has a button-lock on the spine. The steel took a nice, sharp, edge. We'll see how well it performs in my "pocket rotation".
