Great USA made Knife! The lock takes a little getting used too, but still a great purchase, will buy another if and when this one ever wears out!
I have bought two separate knives. One was not as sharp as I would have liked it. However the second one I bought was close to razor sharp. The knife is heavy. The tip is sharp. It is good for protection. It is also good for daily use. I love pulling it out of my pocket and people look at it in awe. It is certainly worth the twenty bucks. It may be a steal!
I purchased this knife as a replacement for a traditional Buck pocket knife. This knife is light and nicely finished. The soft rubber grips are nice and the knife arrived with a sharp blade that locks firmly in place when opened. However, I purchased the knife because of the spring assisted opening, and the knife is difficult to open. I have never been able to open it with one hand. In fact, I sent the knife back thinking it was defective, but when the replacement arrived it had the same problem. It seems to me like the thumb knob is located too close to the blade or the mechanism is just too tight. Either way it is difficult to open. A traditional grove in the blade would help with opening as well. Also, the clip on the knife is well made, but it does not seem to be removable. I would like to remove the clip and carry the knife in my pocket. Overall the knife is a good knife, but it could be improved.
Love the knife, beautiful rainbow finish. Proud to add it to my collection, and as always Knife Depot is right on!!
Great knife design. I would like the and knife blade just a little bit longer, 1/2 inch more would work for me.
Perfect for me, carry knife. But chrome clip got too much attention, so I switched it with a black one from another knife. I would like to have a black blade option also.
Great little knife! Assisted opening fast, fits great in pocket.It has safety lock too, good price unique design!
This is an excellent knife and a good price, I always wanted a Damascus blade knife for my collection but could not afford one until I saw this knife.
