Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

So far so good, had them for about a week now. First impression is that they are a Miura VS with a Toe Cap :) which is awesome! Super tight, still not even close to being broken in but they edge like champions.
There is an audible "squish" as you get them on....love the fit, no dead space.

I wear a 37.5 in the miura VS and a 38 in these. My street shoe is a 7.5

Adding to the review... been climbing in them for almost a year now? My toes still aren't totally happy with the toe box, they definitely make my toes bleed after super long sessions. All in all, my next pair will be another pair of Miura VS.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So I got this purdy little knife for 70 bucks a few months ago and have been carrying it daily since. I was really drawn to it because of the aluminum scales and the size. I love the size, its small and light, works perfect for small tasks like cutting a lime, opening letters, and other small daily tasks. The quality is decent, but it is NO Benchmade. The action just isnt as smooth, even when well lubricated. If forced to pay the $108 msrp, i would have purchased a mini-griptialian.

My biggest 2 dislikes...
1) as a climber, sometimes I have some super sensitive finger tips after a day on the rocks...the lock mechanism is very sharp...not sure why they thought a harsh square edge was a good idea.
2) Closing the blade is jerky, seems the cam could have been better designed.

I am still a Benchmade guy, but this SOG has done well for me. It's not perfect, but for a super small EDC blade, I am pretty happy with it.

I would like to add, the clip is terrible...It has a very nice ride, low in your pocket, but I seem to catch it on everything and its beginning to fatigue....did not have this issue with my Benchmade...

I dig it, a little tough to use on rough stuff, but it's the perfect little guy to carry for light stuff or for emergencies on your harness. It's about the size I your pinkey finger and super sharp!
