New Blade Dance! Spyderco Resilience

So considering I didn't have any full flat ground knives to play with I got a Spyderco Resilience. It is massive. In fact so much so that I kinda don't want to pull it out in public. It makes a Kershaw 1 ton look small, or the CRKT M-16 look dainty....

So some specs are easily available online so look them up.

The Pros:
Nice and sharp out of the box.(Push cuts news print at a 90 degree angle)
Decent steel for the money.
Nice pocket clip that holds well but not hard to draw.
Smooth action.
Solid lockup.
Handle scales provide firm traction.
Enough handle to choke up or down for various tasks.
Light for size.

The Cons:
Far to large for most people to EDC.
The edges of the handle scales are not rounded but simply cut off, so hard grips are not comfortable like some knives.
Liner lock is painful in a hard use grip.
Blade apex grind is a little uneven.
Apex grind is not all the way to the heel.

The Neutral:
Balance is about 1 inch down the handle from the pivot.
Four way positionable pocket clip.

So I give it a solid 7. Not quite as good as my favorite edc pocket folder, but it comes in second.
