I bought this expecting it to be a toy to fiddle with periodically. It did not disappoint in that respect. Out, in, out, in, shick, shick, shick, shick, shick, etc. Very entertaining. However, I bent the pocket clip on my EDC and carried this for two days until I could get it fixed. It's sharp, light, and works just fine for every day pocket knife use. I have not use it enough to see how it sharpens and actually holds an edge, but it was just fine during my limited use.
