Awesome Knife while its a OTF assisted knife, Its fast & smooth fluid operation allow you to flick/spring into action. The overall feel and design of the Viper make for an eye pleasing and enjoyable experience. This knife is strong, reliable and durable. And you wont want to put it down. I plan on ordering another one as this one is a gift for my son. Now its time for one of my own!!!

Hi,my overall rating is 4.5 . The viper has safety switch which will prevent accidental openings. It is built strong with no blade wobble. Super sharp blades with the release button out of the thumbs way. Very reasonably priced. I would buy this again

It was not what I expected from Schrade. It is way to heavy and bulky for what is, OTD. It's a tank the thumb release is a the back end on instead of the front end where the blade shoots out. It takes two hands and it has sharp corners on the ends and all along the surfaces. It does not fell comfortable in my pocket of that Thumbs down on this one
