It is very small and very sharp.
John
I loosened the bolt as much as I could and still can't get the blade to fling open with a flip of the wrist.
Justin
The blade has a needle-sharp point, but the blade itself is not sharp.

For everyday use, I would not recommend this knife. The blade has a needle-sharp point, but the blade itself is not sharp. The blade is 440C stainless, which is ok, but it is finished with BLACK PAINT, which begins to wear off as soon as you first open it. The thumb studs are too small-- it takes practice to be able to open it with one flick, and then only when you hold it just right. Good luck if you're under stress. The price is a little to high as well; should be < $20.00.
On the plus side, once the blade is open, the ergonomics are good--It fits the hand well. Boker also includes the tiny TORX wrench and another special tool to replace the so-called 'glass-breaker tip' with a tip that looks like a ball point pen, and that's definitely good. With the pen tip in place, this looks exactly like a pen in your pocket; also a plus.
I carry and use a knife every day as a cutting tool. This is not suited to that purpose. As a defensive weapon, it could make small puncture wounds of 1 5/8" or less. It's best feature is it's super low profile.

I got this because it was fairly cheap and seemed interesting. It has a lot of problems, however. I disagree that the blade is sharp. I can brush it against my arm and it will not cut unless I apply hard purposeful pressure - a scalpel would have sliced me all up with the same light strokes. The angle of the edge is too steep and the shape of the blade has no belly at all. This design would only make extremely shallow cuts with the tip or the tiny point you see just above the recurve. The blade seemed specialized for stabbing, which makes little sense on such a short blade. This could hurt someone's eye or maybe the back of their hand if they grabbed you and you stuck it in, but then again virtually any blade could do that. This blade would be very inadequate for any other sorts of slashing or thrusting in a self defense situation. I usually advocate a weapon but I can honestly say that for the average male, bare hands would be more effective than this item. The thumb stud is small and spaced tightly near the handle, it would be extremely slow or difficult to flip this blade out under stress.

The only benefits to this item are: It is cheap (can find it for $20 at places). It is as easy to carry and conceal as a small pen. The small glass breaker cap at the end could be useful. It is fairly interesting just from a design viewpoint, I wish some company would implement it better.

A metal handled scalpel, an awl, a S&W tactical pen/kubotan, or the CRKT Ringer II hawkbill skinner would all be far better than this item, if you want a very small last ditch defensive item.

The pivot screw holding the blade in the frame was not tighrt when I recieved this item. I tightened it with the supplied hex-key, and the bolt stripped out resulting in the blade falling out of the handle.

As someone said before the design makes this knife interesting but as far as daily use it is worthless.

I really like this knife. Several of the critical reviews write about the effectiveness of the knife in combat; I don't know the first thing about knife-fighting and can't say one way or the other how useful this would be. What I do like about it is how easy/convienent it is to always have ready (fits in a pen-pocket), how it feels in my hand, and how it cuts.

The blade has a very sharp point and is sharpened to a chisel tip instead of a V-tip (the blade looks like |/ in profile as opposed to most knives I've used where the blade looks like V). I mostly use it for utility work like opening boxes and cutting tape and it is perfect for this. The blade is like an X-acto knife and is also handy for cutting/trimming paper.

It takes a little practice to get a feel for opening and closing the knife, especially left-handed. I gave myself a small cut while I was getting used to it, but that's hardly the knife's fault... with something this small it's important to watch your fingertips!

This knife is really a two and a half star weapon. It is very limited in so many ways by its design, and could have been made more user friendly by its designer a knife fighter. I have been teaching knife fighting for around two decades and there is little,intuitive about its design.

First I don't like being negative about blades because I like them so much as a daily companion, it just seems like this one does nothing really well. Its a shorter, more complicated, less ergonomic prison shank made out of a toothbrush and a razor blade fused together. Lets go into more detail about its issues.

Not nearly as long as a pen so it starts out feeling odd. Should have been longer as it would not have been less concealable, but would have been more controllable for the expert and novice alike.

The worst part is that it opens unlike any other knife made. Yes it looks standard thumb open but it takes practice in a new way foreign to all your other speed knife presentation methods. Why should you have to abandon your hard earned skills with more substantial blades to become proficient in a substandard size limited use delicate weapon.

Blade is a beefier exacto blade. Do not strike anything hard (bone, clothing snaps, zippers, buckles, watches) or it will snap leaving you holding a short plastic pen in your knife fight.

Too short of ,handle to provide leverage, and nothing to grip when it gets wet with bodily fluids.

Thirty bucks? Hey I could have bought a ....... For that. Yeah, I know.

If that's all you've got it is better than nothing.
