Very small in the pocket but with a full 4-finger grip. Looks to be well made, good-to-great fit and finish.
CONS
Was not sharp out of the box. Small cutting edge, so this somehow limits its use. One-handed opening takes practice.
This little knife is enough for 95% of the cutting I need an EDC to do, so in a way it is 95% perfect for me. It isn't flimsy and the four finger grip allows great control, although the thin handle won't fill your grip like other "normal" sized knives. The clip is substantial enough so it grips onto your pocket, or you can just drop it in your pocket. It's so small that opening it one-handed is a bit difficult because there's just not much to grip. Also, I think I would have liked a drop point blade better than a tanto for everyday use, but this is okay. Also this tanto is a chisel-grind, which I had to learn how to sharpen.

Very thin in the pocket. Thin blade stock, hollow grind makes for an excellent slicer. Relatively light. Very positive locking action. Perfect blade centering. Smooth opening.
CONS
Cosmetically imperfect: uneven gaps between scales and bolsters. The wood edges are roughly finished. Lock up is at 80-90%, so it could wear out soon. The thumb opening operation is hard to do, better to open two-handed.
This is an excellent light-duty EDC if you don't mind cosmetic flaws. The ugliest flaw is the uneven gaps between the bolsters and scales. Functionally, I really like it. It's thin and slips in the pocket easily, not too heavy, but with enough size/weight that you can easily find it in your pocket. It locks with a very positive "kachunk" although this may be partly because the lock-up is very late. I worry that the lock might wear out before very long. For what I paid for it though, I am very satisfied. It is now my daily carry knife. An added advantage: it isn't scary looking, I find the design quite beautiful.
