this was just the knife I was looking for, for a pocket knife good clean edge, right weight, and perfect length
I gave it 3 stars for a couple of reasons. I gave it 1 more star than I felt it deserved, due to blame I put on me, not seeing the flaw from the picture. The #! flaw is... the way the clip holds the knife in your pocket... the ring is at the very bottom. The main reason I wanted to go to the Karambit, was the easy of drawing the the knife with the ring, in a self defense situation. I am limited in mobility, so I really thought that the ring would help me draw easierthan trying to pinch a knife to get it out of my pocket. With this configuration, one step becomes two. You have to draw the knife and then flip the knife 180 degrees, to obtain the best grip. Major flaw in my opinion. The 2nd flaw, which I fixed, is that the spring clip is so tight that you have to tug and tug to get it out of your pocket. I eventually bent it out just enough to make it function as it should. The knife quality is worth the price. Well constructed considering. But the 1st flaw makes it hard for me to recommend to others.
Great knife. It opens easy and closes easy. It's light weight and offers a good grip. I really like the G-10 handle. Its got a good sharp Kershaw drop point blade. What else do you need in a pocket knife?
We bought two of these knives for each of our boys.. The ordering was easy, the engraving options were plenty and the shipping was processing and shipping time was quick. We were very pleased with the engraving when it arrived, the knives looked just like we hoped.
Good solid knife. Holds a good edge. I carry this knife every day. I think every one should have this knife. Easy to open with 1 hand. It's still going strong after a year of hard work. I'm going to buy another one not because I need a new one my old works as good as the day I got it. But if I was to loose it I don't think I could function with out it.
Brass knuckles AND fast open assist in one piece? Totally badass, if maybe not very useful. And most-likely illegal - though I haven't bothered to look it up. It's not a practical use item, as there are better knives and better brass knuckles, though it is solid and quality made. The knuckles are split to allow the blade travel and the blade lock is clumsy to access and operate inside the index finger hole, but the blade opens fast and smooth and locks nice and tight. I don't see taking it out of the house. More like a very cool toy for the collection or a gift idea. This knife/knuckle combo looks great, works well enough and is priced low for the fun. I'm glad I bought it and may buy some more as gifts.
KNIFE PERFORMS AS EXPECTED.VERY SHARP AND FITS THE HAND WELL. I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A BELT sheath AT THE SAME TIMEWILL BUY ONE NOW.
Amazing quality, I absolutely love this knife. Shipping was faster than expected and showed up in perfect condition. Can't wait to buy another
