Is this a slight swayback profile ?
How does it feel in hand ?
Is this one to use for you ?

I kinda like that one. Is it SpeedSafe? (or whatever it's called)

No speed safe on this one, opens with a pull of the lever with your index finger, then a slight flick of the wrist.

Very smooth

Good-looking knife. Not sure how I feel about the pocket clip. It's nice that it's out of the way and keeps the knife looking sleek, but the knife could possibly look even nicer without it. Either way it's a cool knife. ::tu::

Lots of you-tubes on this knife. Sounds like a nice "little" knife. I may have to buy one to check it out. I don't have any CRKT ("cricket") knives as some feel that they aren't all that great, but this one in particular has very good reviews (at least that I have seen).

The only complaints that people mention is the way the clip works, but it is that way by design and requires a different way to use it. Someone mentioned that the lock bar quickly moved over to the far side. How is the lock up working for you?
