A daily workhorse.
The Ellis uses a lockback design so that you can do real work with a tool that locks; no more busted knuckles turning screws. Other features include a partially-serrated drop point blade, a combination bottle-opener and screwdriver, our "All Things"® scraper and pry and a bail loop for attaching to your keys, carabiner or backpack.
Awesome utility - Tricky release
I loved the first iteration of this knife (was one of the LTD purchasers). It was incredibly smooth to operate and the exterior was really satisfying to the touch. Ended up opting for the black version of the Ellis after the recall and I can't seem to figure out how to efficiently operate the new double lock back. The release is really narrow and I end up having to try to jam my nail at it to get it to budge. Not sure if that is normal, but it is a little frustrating. Otherwise, I really do enjoy the overall knife.
