Fantastic folding utility knife. I'm a chef and I probably use this tool more than any other. It's tough, versatile and it keeps a decent edge. Highly recommended for everyday use.

These guys are awesome. First knife I received, had a little wiggle in the blade. They sent me a replacement knife at no charge. Excellent customer service. Will definitely use them in the future.

Exceptionally well built knife for the cost. It now my favorite carry knife.

I got it as a present for my son. After seeing it I wanted to keep it for myself.

Bought 3 of these knives as Christmas presents. Two for my sons and the other for my daughter's boyfriend. I had their names laser etched into the blade; it really made an impression. The knife was lighter than I expected but fully met the description on line. As noted it was razor sharp and light to carry. I was very pleased with it. I had no misgivings or regret gifting these as presents for Christmas.

If I found myself in a zombie apocalypse, I would be ready with this knife.
