It's well suited to light tasks such as opening packages or slicing sausage. The addition of a lanyard really helps give a bit more real estate for gripping. With it's killer looks and surprising ergonomics, it is a great addition to anyones everyday carry. If you get the chance, I recommend you pick one up!
