Solid folding knife. It's nice that you can clip it to a full sized carabiner. It's a tad heavy for carrying on my harness unless I expect to need it, and its all metal construction makes it painful to grab in the cold, but those are small complaints.

I love this knife for anything but climbing. I think it opens a little too easily. I've dropped it and had it pop open. I think I'd rather have one that takes two hands to open but will definitely stay closed if I drop it.

Straight/serrated blade that stays closed while climbing. Knife body accomodates a full-size carabiner for attaching to harness/sling. Anodized exterior. One-handed operation. I feel that a knife designed for climbing should be a tad smaller and lighter.

Great knife for climbing or even everyday use. Sharp too, gave myself a nice gash in the thumb when it slipped. My fault though.

I've wanted a safe folding knife to carry on my harness. I've found it in the Buck Knife Approach Folder.
I tried to open it by jumping around and flicking my wrist and it would not open but it is easily opened using only one hand. The pivot screw can be tightened so the knife is easier or more difficult to open. It has a partially serrated blade and is very sharp. There is a large lanyard loop that you can fit a carabiner through.
LL Bean sells them for $27.95.
