I recently purchased a CRKT Pharaoh, but found it too heavy for EDC. However, I was so impressed with the knife that I purchased another better suited for EDC. This is the M16 02Z. It is offered in a combo edge, but I opted for the straight edge. It's light and opens VERY easily with one hand. It has a sort knob on the back of the blade that you pull toward you with your index finger. The blade opens very quickly and immediately locks. It's not assisted open, but it's quite effective. The M16 employs the AutoLAWKS system (which I actually like) as well as a frame lock. The knife can be closed one handed but so far I've found it to be cumbersome and slow. Perhaps with some practice, it will come easier. The knife came sharp out of the box and feels solid for a light knife. It does have a removable pocket clip. Let me know if you have any questions.
