I have been using mine that I acquired as an Impulse Purchase last year some time along with a Blade Medic...Very Pleased and Surprised with the Performance versus Price

Its not legal in Ireland.  :facepalm:
(Of course, its not fair to say that when the same can be said of a sharp pencil.  :facepalm: )

I think it looks kind of cute.  :dd:  :tu:

Hooked, like everyone else. :D

What makes it illegal in Ireland?

It's under 3", has no lock, no one handed opening, no double edges, and a backspring so tight that it could never be flicked open under any circumstances.

It's an interesting concept, but the designer tried really hard to make it as tactical as possible without making a tactical knife, when really he should have just tried to make a good knife.

Basically the fact that it has a sharp edge, that's all.  :D

Let me clarify.

As the law here is written, anything with a sharp edge or point, you need a "reasonable excuse" to carry(Its for work, fishing camping etc).
(And sharp pencils technically fall under this law... :D )
Its all up to the officer if you have a good excuse or not.
Probably the officer will not care about a pencil, some might not care about a keychain SAK, but I doubt you can get away with bigger blades without a "reasonable excuse"...

Indeed.   :ahhh
As the next bit says, the officer has the power to decide whether the person in question has a reasonable excuse to carry said article.
Better hope he/she is in a good mood!  :ahhh  :P

That, it is also a very heavy knife.

And I can see a LEO make the argument that the extra-strong back-spring equals locking. I have carried mine for a while, but the edge shape and the curve towards the tip are not really to my liking.

I think it is a good knife. I believe that they were shooting for a Market that's wants a tactical but legal knife

You could only call it cute if you haven't seen how big it is in hand. ;)  It's distinctly a "chunky monkey" IMO.
