Pocket Knives

Very reliable; never loses its edge. Slim light design fits perfectly in dress pants.

By Bryan C.

Me and my wife got 2 of these and are very happy in fact we are going to buy 6 for Christmas for family and friends well worth the money the 2 knives we got were worth 25 for one and 45 for the other.

I like this knuckle knife pretty well, but I do have a concealed carry permit. Without such, I could be in trouble with the law if I was to be caught with it, it's pretty deadly, Its a bad assed knife. It fits into a jacket pocket well, and is a concealed weapon. Yes, I like it

Excellent knife for the low end price, proud to have in my collection.

I fell in love with the knife when I first saw it. A sleek, clean, folding Schrade worth $25. Considering I paid $10 and the engraving was a simple "Knife Depot", I would strongly recommend purchasing one.

It is a very good knife. Better then I expected.

I love this knife. I carry this knife with me every day.

The perfect knife! Can't think of any negatives to it.
