Does anyone have this SAK? If so what do you think of it?

I've got one. I can take pics when I get back home tomorrow.

Thoughts on it:
It really depends on what you're looking for in a one hand knife. When I got mine, the main priority was a one hand knife that was as people friendly as possible. I really think that is the sentinel's strong suit. 

Besides the people friendly factor, my other favorite feature is that it is really a slip joint with a blade block, not what I'd consider a true liner lock. To me, this gives peace of mind that the blade is held open by two mechanisms. Also give much better blade retention when closed than most liner locks with detents.

Speaking of the liner lock, the Vic liner lock is backward from normal, but easy enough to get used to. The clip helps give purchase for releasing the lock to close, if you had the non-clip version, I think it would be too thin. It feels a little unsubstantial due to the hollow scales, but I like the light weight that results.

What it is:
A nice, light weight, people friendly one hand knife with good enough steel and a good enough clip. 

What it isn't:
If you're looking for a one hand knife to baton logs, this isn't it. If you're looking for lighting fast deployment or closing, this isn't it. If your looking for a super steel or multiple clip positions, this isn't it.

Conclusion:
Basically, to me, it strikes me as a very victorinox  type take on a one hand knife. Nothing over the top, but just the right steel for everyday tasks, a perfectly functional clip for most people, user friendly, non knife people friendly and a reasonable cost. Basically, the same design philosophy they use on all their knives.

Had my eye on the One Hand Trekker for a while but have not squeezed that trigger yet. This seems similar, but fewer toys on it, yet they are about the same price.

I do like the idea of the pocket clip on a one hander. Waiting for pics

Sorry for the delay on the pics. Totally forgot about this...  :facepalm:

Anyway, here are some pics. A couple comparing the sentinel with a pioneer and modified opinel no 6.

As an aside, I would recommend the clip version over the non if for not other reason than it gives more purchase to hold the knife while opening and closing.

I have, Er, had, one of those. I gave my kids the chance to grab some of my knives/SAKs. My 16 year old grabbed my Compact and my Sentinel, as well as a small Buck folder I had.

I see it every so often... haha
