Great cutter, but Get a grip
on October 16, 2012
Had a friend with a smaller version of this knife, and thought it was a great little cutter. I figured I'd go full one ton and one up him, but I was wrong. The knife overall is just "okay". The knife would be rockin five full stars if it wasn't for the grip. Being textured on one side and smooth steel on the other, it's tough to open and close. That might change with some work, let the knife loosen up a bit, but I still don't see that I'm going to be happier about that grip. It's a mood killer, for sure.
Following up: Okay, so I've worked with the knife a bit, and over a couple days the action's loosened up a little. Also, with just a little adjustment in my grip, opening the knife is getting easier. My complaints about the grip are still there, but I'm making adjustments myself to deal.
And it is worth it... I broke down a box the other day after buying a new lawnmower, and decided to try this knife out instead of a box cutter. Holy (insert expletive of choice here), this knife slices like you wouldn't believe. Overall, my review is going to go from a three to a four. That one star is still over the grip, but I'm learning to live with it.
