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!

I live in California and weapons-carry options are pretty limited. As such, I love kubotans, tactical pens, and blades under 3". Sometimes, I carry one and wish I would've carried the other; and other times, I carry it all and feel overpacked.

I wanted something that I could use first as a kubotan yet also a blade if necessary. This item helped me minimize and balance my needs. The low-profile size also fits much better into pockets than some of the 6"+ tactical pens out there. I don't want to be that walking billboard that reads, "I have a big knife on my person; so don't mess with me but don't give me a citation either." Funny thing is this knife is like going the other extreme. It's very small. 4 1/4" closed and about 1/2" in width. The scalpel blade is about 1 1/2" of actual cutting surface. I wish the handle would've been a 1/2" or 1" longer. That would've given it a better grip as well as control when deploying the blade. If you grab both sides of the thumbstuds, it does help flip the blade out a little easier. Takes some practice...

I see this thing more like a shank, if you will. It's a good last ditch defense weapon, though, when you have nothing else on you. Something to help when you need to just strike, slash, stab and RUN!
