Does it have a way to attach a lanyard?
There's no lanyard hole, I have the brown plain edge version as my EDC knife. This was my first experience with D2, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Came from Benchmade at almost consistent 30 degrees inclusive angle which made sharpening a breeze. (I always reprofile all my blades to 30 inclusive) D2, while hard as hell to initially sharpen, will keep that edge for a long time. Any dulling can be fixed with a leather strop and some compounds.
Compared to my other EDC knife, the Benchmade Mini Axis Stryker, they both are pretty much the same size and shape, just different blade steel. (154cm vs D2) 154cm is wonderful to sharpen and takes a laser sharp edge easy, while D2's edge was just...razor sharp. But I found myself liking the D2 more overall, hence why I sold my Mini Stryker.
If you want a knife for small EDC tasks or are in environments where big blades may not be welcomed, this is a great alternative next to a Mini-Grip. For the price though for G-10 and D2 steel, it's definitely a bargain. Pretty lightweight and good traction on both the scales and the blade for detail work. (I use this knife at work to peel off labels from boxes without damaging the box) And if you want a deep carry pocket clip option, just email Benchmade for a deep carry clip and they'll send you one for free, black or silver. It becomes very discreet with a deep carry clip, which is what I want when I'm at work. The flashy knives I take out on the weekends.
Kinda debating on getting a serrated edge just because.
