The Ronin is not really a typical Spyderco product to me. Its micarta handle and bead blasted blade give it a kind of custom/handmade feel. The sheath is pretty good, I found the retention to be best with the retention screw removed. Spyderco blew me away with the concealex on the re-issue of the Moran, but the Perrin sheath was pretty dismal, way too much rattle. The Ronin’s blade is a pleasing 3 inches, with a shortened grip. I like to think of it as a nicely contoured boot grip, the kind found on snub-nosed revolvers. The sheath’s square profile is a bit big, although it does prevent accidental twisting when worn under a shirt. I don’t carry it outside the house, since that is pretty much ‘verboten’ to me. But it’s a neat toy and if you can carry it by all means do so. Not many small production fixed blades offer this edge geometry.
