    I just bought a mini stryker:

    but am a little unsatisfied with it. It is a really nice knife, it has a solid construction and is made with nice material. I also like that it carries well in my pocket (does not cause wear) and is overall pretty rugged.

    The only thing I don't like is that the spring assist takes quite a bit of force to open. I can open it smoothly with my right hand, but it is damn hard to do so with my left, especially with the clip attached.




    This is why I'm considering getting the mini presidio:

    I haven't actually tried out how it felt, but if it isn't too heavy and also carries well in my pocket, I'll go for it
