Alright, I personally hate reviews that begin with, "I bought this 3 days ago and...." I know you do too. I've had this Knife for TWO YEARS. I must say without a doubt, it is truly well constructed. The blade is about 2.5 inches, so it is a bit small if want something big and spectacular to show off to your friends, but honestly, what will you be doing that requires a five inch pocket knife? Although it may lack in size to some *ahem*(Urban tough Guys), it makes up for it in quality, style, and functionality. it is made of 4304 Stainless Steel; which means it stays very sharp for a very long time. As for style, the SWMP1 is gorgeous. It has a rubberized handle grip which is obviously high quality and will not come off. The functionality on this knife is astounding. With the scoop-back design, sturdy handle and most of all the MAGIC assist blade opener, it tops any knife I have yet to see in this category. At the price of twenty five or thirty dollars, it is a great buy. I loved mine so much I bought a second one for my 15 year old son's birthday. He loved it so much he named it Phoebe. Anyway, this makes a perfect gift is my point. Even after two years of having this it only looks a month old. Incredible durability. As for safety features on this knife, it has a slide lock on the side that clicks firmly in place yet still easy to open with a man's thumb. it may seem a bit excessive to drop $30 on a knife, however, you will never regret it. All in all, this knife has great durability, style, and functionality. It'd bring a smile to my face if you let me know if you purchase one, because trust me, it will bring a smile to yours.
