Nice little pocket knife. Holds an edge great. Arrived razor sharp.
Outstanding! Customer focused communication. Perfect product and extremely fast service.
This small but mighty knife made the perfect gift for a favorite Uncle
I was looking for a special size knife for my husband to carry in his pocket. This knife was exactly what he needed.
Love the small pocket knife!! Easy to carry and deosnt take up much rm..
My husband loses lots of knives. This is replacement. He likes it.
The knife I purchased as a Christmas gift for my husband very closely resembles the pocket knife my father carried as I was growing up. That was my decision in buying it mainly & I couldn't find a better price. The whole transaction was smooth & easy. Thank you!
One of my absolute favorites! Five stars for sure! Thanks guys and gals !
Knifes are great
It was just what I wanted for Sunday.
It was just what I wanted as a Sunday Knife.
I lost my 30 yr. old Old Timer single blade and replaced it with the 180TMighty Mite. It is the perfect replacement!
Great little lock blade knife with a traditional look. Perfect for small everyday tasks.
This small lock folder is perfect for my pocket and the price is so low it is mind blowing. Lock on knife keeps your hand safe as you use it. Small but mighty.
Love it. I've carried one for 30+ years. Got 'em for my nephews when they turn 16.
Small enough to carry in pocket, big enough to cut most things that need cutting. Well made. Holds sharp edge, peerless fingernail cleaner. Best value for the cost. Recently purchased and engraved eight "Old Timers 180" for every male member of my family.
Great pocket knife. Holds an edge and locks open and small enough to carry all the time. I'm ordering three more for my Grandsons.
Perfect pocket knife. Holds an edge. Locks open. I won't carry anything else. Thank you.
Great knife and FAST shipping will buy from them again.
It was exactly what I wanted and wasn't available on its own website. Ordering and paying for it was easy. Delivery was fast.
I found this knife in your online catalog. I wanted to have the same knife my grandfather had. I ordered it hoping it would be the same. I was not disappointed. Thank you for the knife.
I love this little knife and it is just what I want.
This is a great pocket knife.Gave these to my crew as a gift, they love them.
I like this knife. It is the perfect knife to carry in your pocket.
I am very pleased with this little single blade pocket knife. I have another Old Timer with 4 blades, and I like it, but it is a bit heavy for some pants pockets. This is smaller, lighter, and "fills the bill" just as I had anticipated.
Yea, I say "Far Out" too.! It thinks it's a lot larger than it really is.it. Although it is made in China, quality is there!
Sturdy and stays sharp., Comfortable to carry in my side pocket.
Great Knife, I like the locking blade and the sharpness of the blade. Great value
This is the first Shrade product I have purchased. Up until now I have been partial to Case. I am impressed with the quality, and the Carbon blade (hard to find) easier to sharpen. I carry it almost every where I go, in my pants pocket. I have carried a pocket knife since I was 10 yrs. old, at 62 I will keep carrying it, for practical use. If the need arises, I will purchase from Knife Depot again, and recommend it to my friends
Just the right size to fit into your jeans pocket.
I have carried one of these knives for 20 years, still the handiest tools I've ever owned.
Nice product, wanted the smallest pocket knife I could find.
I lost the same knife about 3 years ago. It help me get out of a BAD wreck by cutting the seat belt. I'm really pleased to have found a new one thru you. Thanks,
Had a case slimline for over 40 years and lost it replaced with this clip point, not as long as my case thought it was to small but getting use to the size very handy and no weight in your pocket. Well made.
Quality product but I was taken back to see the knife was made in China. Why must we put our own people out of work..why? .It's not right for what the almighty dollar. I may have had different thoughts about purchasing the knife if I knew as I carried this knife all my life as did my father.Just disappointed is all..Thank you.
More "Old Timer" selections! I understand the new one are Shrades in disguise, but Shrade makes a great knife as well! How about some O/T's in the collectibles section? You guys are a blessing!
I have carried an 'OLD TIMER' for over 50 years. I wouldn't walk out the door with out it.
The knife is a bit smaller than the one I lost but I picked it by the picture. Works fine. I like it
Far out, simply awesome. best pocket knife I've ever had.
I have had several knifes over the years. I like this one for its compact size and the feature of being able to lock the blade. They make a great gift.
The Mighty Mite is what it is Mighty. Its great for opening boxes that my parts arrive in.
Excellent all the way
This is the perfect pocket knife, it locks for safety. Excellent product and a good company to purchase from...thanks
Great knife, more than reasonable price and shipping and quick shipping as well. Discount promo for future orders a plus. Knife Depot gets a 98, my highest rating
This is a great pocket knife. I have carried this model of knife for over twenty years. The knife that I bought was smaller than what I wanted (my mistake) The knife I have carried has a 3 inch blade, a great hunting and fishing and work knife.
It is just what I was looking for.
This is a great knife! It is small, yet practical and cuts just about everything. Thank you!
I love it because it's small, a single blade, and it just feels right in my hand.
This is a small single lock blade pocket knife and is a hard to find item.......thanks for having it....
My husband is totally thrilled with this item. It fits great in a pocket!
This is just what I wanted!
My husband was very pleased with this purchase!
This is the second one that I have purchased. It is a great product and I will continue to purchase in the future. Thanks!
This is an excellent product and you have excellent service!
My boyfriend is a big fan of the old timer knives but he likes the lock blade. I would buy more he loves them.
It met all our expectations. The knife was great and service was wonderful!
I couldn't find this knife anywhere in my area. My husband had one of these a long time ago so I wanted to replace it.
Excellent knife! Very hard to find. Exactly what I wanted.
I am very pleased with this product; the price and the easy ordering process.
This is a great little pocket knife. It is the perfect size for carrying in dress slacks, and big enough to do all the little chores around the house or office. The lock blade is a plus. I've carried this model for years and just had to replace my last one because I lost it. This time I bought two to have a spare.
Great pocket knife! I lost mine earlier this year and tried a few different kinds but I came back to this one again.
I bought it as a gift and you had this knife in stock. The shipping was super fast and the price was excellent.
My knife is a single blade locking Old Timer and it is wonderful! The blade is sharp and the knife as a whole is good to the touch and operates smoothly. I cannot conceive of a better pocket knife for I have looked and no knife is better.
I love this knife and I've ordered a total of 5!
The Schrade old timer made in the U.S.A. are the best knifes out there. I bought one for my Dad for his birthday and he was so surprised to see that there are still a few U.S.A. knifes available.
I absolutely love having it to carry again as I had lost my old one after about 25 years. I could always do most every thing that I would really need the knife for in the course of a business day. It is just handy and the right size. The little blade guard is also a plus. Just a great knife!
I am glad that I ordered it! I LOVE IT!
The knife is a nice size, attractive and well made and finished. A definite great deal for the money. My only gripe is that the liner lock is not as strong as it should be, allowing some closing type movement. Thanks for the good deal and the opportunity to provide a review statement.
not a big fan of small folders but this one has a locking blade, Iike that! very sturdy and nice looking. has changed my opinions on small folders, as a matter of fact I've bought a few more since then. make great gifts, the smiles are great rewards. go for it!
Nice knife. Blade was sharp. I liked the locking mechanism. Thought it would be bigger, however. I have a Buck, single blade, similar design but longer and a bit beefier.
It is a real good knife all though it is really small.
Very well made, nice & small, easy to carry in my purse, seems sharp but doesn't work as well on hang-nails as I had hoped - due to the curved tip, I guess. Light weight; a bit stiff to open/close but that will probably improve with use.
This an excellent small knife. It is easy to carry, even in the smallest of pockets, and stays sharp for a multitude of uses.
Good looks, handy size, always there, so many uses, quality product.
The knife, for my wife, replaces another she lost. I bought two this time. She loves it, especially the blade lock and the size. I would rather have a high carbon steel blade, but they're hard to find now.
Like it alot. Thanks.
The knife is for my wife who loves the old timers with the lock back blades and keeps losing them. I would have preferred a knife with a good high carbon steel blade so I could sharpen it to my specs. But, she loves it.
Very nice pocket knife. Sharp, stylish, has brass liner lock.
Great little pocket knife. I ordered 5. Delivery time excellent. Because I was to give them as gifts I wanted them in a small box rather than the difficult to open plastic packaging they came in. I called the company and they kindly sent me 5 small boxes at no charge so that I could easily wrap them as gifts. Of the 5 knives, one of the blade locks did not function. It is a great small knife for everyday use.
I think it is a good little pocket knife for the money!
This is a small, inexpensive, no-frills, single-blade pocket knife of a venerable brand. It is tried and proven over many years. I use mine a lot, occasionally lose it or, eventually, wear it it out, so I try to keep at least one spare on hand.
This is a great little pocket knife! It fits in my pocket really well! I had carried my first for ten years till it wore out. I am looking for ten more from this one.
This is about the 10th Old Timer knife that I have purchased. I do not like the new "safety feature", locking knife in the open position.
I've carried and loved the Schrade 180T Old Timer Mighty Mite for over 50 Years. I've lost only two over the years until I lost my latest one. I immediately ordered a new one. How disappointed I was to see it is now made in communist China! The overall quality is typical chinese with little comparison to the quality of the original Schrade Old Timer. The chinese knife is much thicker and heavier. the rivets stick up and not flush with the handle, and the handle material is different and not fine finished like the USA made original. It will serve its purpose as a pocket knife but It's so sad to see so many quality USA made products moved off shore to communist China.
OK knife, but I found it to be a little to small to use.
I previously owned this same knife and had had it for many years until I lost it. After hunting for weeks I finally gave up and ordered a new one. It is a wonderful knife for packing and using every day. However, the blade locking mechanism which was very secure on the old knife is almost non-functional on the new one. With only the slightest of pressure it give way and allows the knife to close when not intended.
Since I purchased this knife for my husband to replace one he had carried for years and lost to Airport Security, I can only say that he has accepted it as OK. Of course it is not the same as a "favorite" but he does like it and in time I am sure nostalgia will lesson and it will be his "favorite"
It's a knife, no big deal.
The blade was larger (wider) than anticipated. It has been handy around the house for cutting open bailed and large bagged items!
