Take a look at the SOG Aegis. Great knife.

Aegis is a great knife. Flash 2 is also a very good option for a lightweight fairly large size blade with assisted open. Sure wish kershaw offered an assisted skyline... love the manual action one...

I'll have to disagree about the flash 2. I have one and if you put a little pressure on the blade the lock will fall. I stopped carrying mine.

Might as well do it too.

Pros:
*lightweight
*For how light it is, it's a big knife. 3.75 inch blade, good sized handle.
*Handle's ergonomic and it's texture grips your hand well
*Great pocket clip. It's reversible rides well in your jeans pocket and gets in and out fast
*The little cutout thingy is useful for cutting line, string, rope, etc. Crap that you don't really want to deploy the blade for
*Assisted opening is great
*While the handle is plastic, it's a strong fiberglass reinforced plastic, not some PVC or ABS crap
*The Arc lock is strong and easy to use. Haven't seen it fail yet, and there are tons of stress test reviews on Youtube where it takes way worse of a beating than what I put it through.

Cons:
*Blade wasn't impressive. Didn't hold an edge too well (which isn't a big deal if you're a competent sharpener)
*Chipped the tip off my blade. I did it picking a lock, which puts stresses on knives that they aren't designed to go through. Still worth mentioning though
*The TiNi coating on some models is advertised to be rust-proof and some spots of mine showed rust. Not sure how common it is.
*While the handle is a strong plastic, it's still unreinforced plastic.

Way I see it, it's a well-laid out knife with a bunch of neat features, but it's held back by an average at-best blade. It'd say about a generous 7/10. It's an alright choice, but there's better stuff in the $50-100 price range.

I got mine, a tiger striped combo blade for like 75 bucks.



Here's the little bit of rust I was talking about.

Lastrebel, I have been carrying my flash 2 fairly regularly for nearly 3 years. The only time the lock has failed I discovered my grip caused me to pull downward on the release... I can't fault the blade for my bad habits... come to think of it... I need to sharpen that knife back up and put it back into the rotation! I will say it is tricky if you want to take it apart and clean it out... took a lot longer than most to get put back together... still love it though...

Speaking of the "Flash II my wife and I entered a drawing at a grand opening of a Dicks Sporting goods Store and naturally just my luck she won, this.



It worked out well for me as we made a trade, don't ask.

Tango... I am wishing I had spent a bit more and gotten the coated blade like yours... Looks very cool... Mine is showing a lot of scratching and a bit of wear but it is a user that I love!!!
