Can't believe this knife opens faster than a switchblade, and it doesn't even have a spring I open and close it 100 times a day, marveling at that smooth ball bearing. I like knives with exotic hardwood scales, but they turn dark over time. These titanium scales will be just as beautiful in 20 years. And it's half the weight of the stainless steel version

I own the mini of this knife and nicknamed it the stinger. Incredibly sharp, a little difficult to maneuver in terms of opening it because it's only 4-5 inches long when open. The grip is fantastic to hold, excellent texture and beautiful. I have the same complaint with the clip. I'm not sure it's really necessary as the knife tends to stay put in your pocket due to the texture. I'm going to order the "big" version, but this does seem more suited to a woman's hand. Great gift for a lady to carry in her purse or pocket. I carry mine when I run or go out at night alone.

I like how sharp the knife is. II would like a knife which is about an inch longer
I have one of these Eros knives (and several other Ken Onion designed knives). I have two MINOR complaints about the Eros, and they are related.
(1) The clip is rather cheesy aluminum, and bent out of shape way too easily to be effective,
(2) There is no way to reverse it. I wound up taking the clip off altogether.
The knife itself though is Onion's usual primo quality. It stays bloody well sharp. I would like a slightly larger one. I absolutely LOVE the scales of the Titanium model.
I first saw this knife while working in Afghanistan. It was in a German PX (Post Exchange) and I was very impressed with the knife. I would have bought it on the spot, but they were asking 269 Euros for it ($356.58).
I decided to look for it online and snatched it from CRKT's site for only $225
I'm still very impressed with it and look forward to a long happy experience with my new Gentleman's Tactical from Ken Onion.

This knife lives up to its moniker, "Gentleman Tactical". The knife is sturdy, elegant, finely made, sharp-sharp-sharp, light, and hand friendly. It is a bit difficult to open and close at first, but as with any knife, it gets smooth with practice and wear. I too would be interested in a larger version of this knife - while it's perfect for deep carry, I would love to see a longer version. Careful when you first open it, I touched the tip to my finger and drew blood.
