    Great Knife

    Posted by John on Jun 25th 2010

    I picked one of these up and love it. The size and weight are what I like as well as the look and feel. Actually I would have bought this even if it was a manual. The opening is fast and strong. You do really have to press the button all the way in to get it to release, which is a good thing to keep from accidental deployment. The lock works great also. It is heavy at almost 6oz but it really makes the knife feel like it can withstand anything.. which is a big thumbs up for me. Goes in/out of pocket with ease but scales give enough grip as not to fall out. Also gives great grip in the hand. S30V is my favorite steel and you get lots of it with the 92mm blade. Pick one up while you can, you won't regret it. And I have to mention the fantasic prices and service you get from Cutlery Shoppe, nothing but top notch.

    The Citadel 92mm is everything I'd hoped it would be. The price was fantastic, and Cutlery Shoppe was very, very easy to contact. They answered the phone, provided accurate information and shipped the knife extremely fast and without any problems.

    Both the Spyderco Citadel 92mm and Cutlery Shoppe are top-notch examples of what's right in the knife-collecting world!
