Great deal, for $12 shipped I got a 45 dollar knife, if you are into surprises and a little mystery then this deal is for you. Overall I'm very happy with what I received, and definitely will buy more oops knives in the future.

Love this knife. Easy to use, sturdy, and does exactly what I need it to do, which is everything around the ranch. I love the look of it and it fits well in my hand securely. My only negative aspect is the handle color... says "blue handle" but its more black with a blue tinge or opalescent look about it when it hits the light. at general appearance, it looks black, so not what it looks like in the photo.

First of all I am very happy with my purchase. The (CRKT) M4-02 with the white bone handles is one of the best looking knives I have ever purchased, but it reaches much further than cosmetics. The assisted opening mechanism works perfectly. It's super easy to open with one hand and it locks securely into place, ready for any of your toughest cutting needs safely. The blade itself is made from a high carbon steel which is going to make it sharpen well and hard enough to hold a sharp edge longer. I was so impressed with this knife I ordered 2 more so I have one whit bone handle, one with stag handles, and one with Burl wooden handles. This is one of the higher quality of knives you will find with the low price the a Knife Depot sells it for. For quality and price your just not going to find a better deal, believe me I checked the same knife from the CRKT web site and it was priced almost 25% lower at the Knife Depot than the manufacturers web store. If your looking for a quality knife at its lowest price you can't do any better than The Knife Depot. You won't be disappointed.

I like the Red Skull Karambit for the way it fits in my hand and blade sharpness. However, after getting acquainted with the knife I was disappointed in the blade alignment when closing. The blade has to be guided back into place during closure into the handle or it will hit the side of the handle.

Had my4301 for a year now, carry it everyday all day here on the farm. Its stayed sharp as hell all through the many small but very important tasks its helped me do! GREAT KNIFE AT LESS THAN $50. SGT.MAJ.Phillips (retired) OSCEOLA, Mo.

Knife is exactly as described, and really sharp. Clean lines,extremely light weight, almost disappears in my pocket. Ceramic is beautifully ground, and will cut you in a heartbeat. Great EDC, but I would not cut HD products with it, as I don't want to dull the edge (I'm not sure I cold if I tried, so I don't know what I'm afraid of). Not a wall scraper, you don't even know it's there! Great knife.

I got My Buck 110 FG in 1972 and it's been everywhere since then, over a million miles, and when I broke the tip of the blade off on the throttle linkage of My Z-28 in 1978, it even went back to where it came from. That's right, the fine Folks at Buck knives not only replaced the blade of My knife but they also polished the Brass and the wood and returned it to me without charging a dime. They made Me feel like I was a part of Their Family and that's pretty much what it means when You purchase a Buck knife. When they say they have a Forever Warranty, You can Believe it.

I ordered a bunch of these and the consistency was pretty good. Attractive and a very nice overall appeal; it clearly is built to last. I think though, that a Chairman's series knife should have a polished blade.
