I have owned the artisan shark In s35vn as well as the Zumwalt contoured g10 and ended up selling both as I found them to be thick in the handle and kind of bulky in the pocket. If the shark didn't have such a thick blade stock and thick handle I probably would've held onto it as I did like it otherwise. They are well-made knives and have a good action but I prefer bestech, Kizer, and Civivi over artisan cutlery for budget china produced folders. They tend to fit my preferences better. Now artisans titanium models look really nice but I don't know if they suffer from the same pocket hog syndrome. For this particular wren model it's a little hefty for my tastes as i don't generally EDC anything over about 4 1/4 ounces and that's usually for a larger knife 3 1/2 to 4 inch blade. I like to stick between 3-4 ounces preferably. I do own a few heavier folders but I find they don't get near as much pocket time so I have to really like the knife to buy it.
