    If that's the tiny auto, I held it the other day and it was way too light for my liking. I like a little heft to my blades.

    No. Thing is pretty big and meaty. Was almost too big to be held comfortably. (Although my hands arent the biggest)

    yeah. The button makes it flip out. Also has a safety on the top to keep it from autofolding in your pants.

    Meh. I was playing around a 9050 at a shop. I ended up going with the 5000 auto presidio model instead. Auto axis lock ftw. Felt like a much more solid knife. Grip was fantastic and really comfortable.

    I have a AFO, I paid 160 for it locally. It's built very well, after breaking in the button is easy to push and it has a incredibly strong blade release. It is a big knife though.

    Are they not making the fullsize Stryker in auto form, or am I just not seeing it?

    Yes, but combo edge not in black, please. I already have a couple black blades, and wearing off the finish irks the shit out of me.
