If the ratings had the the option of half stars, I would rate this knife 3.5, because it's above average. With an Amazon selling price less than $30, furthermore, this knife rates a 5 for value relative to its price point. It appears, however, that the designers were ambivalent about what the product should be. The knife has some high-end features mixed with some goofs.

(1) High-End Features

(a) 154CM steel. This is a grade of steel usually found in more expensive knives. Knife fanatics have moved on to more exotic steels, but 154CM is known to maintain a sharp edge.

(b) Screw-together construction. The knife is assembled with Torx-head screws. The pivot clearance is adjustable to control degree of friction and amount of side-play. Bronze washers are used at the pivot joint.

(c) Removable pocket clip. The pocket clip is held by three Torx screws. The screws mate with metal threaded bushings embedded in the nylon handle. Cheaper knives have non-removable molded plastic clips which easily snap off or screws that bite directly into the plastic. Note: In the first knife I received, one of the screws wouldn't back out (freely rotated). I exchanged it; second unit was fine.

(2) Good Design Features

(a) Blade. The blade has a simple curve and a flat grind that is easy to sharpen. The 2.6" length handles a wide range of tasks, yet results in a compact knife that can be carried in a pocket. Straight out of the package, the edge was razor sharp and readily shredded newsprint into long strips.

(b) Handle size. Handle is full-size with molded contours for thumb and fingers.

(c) Light weight. To reduce weight, the knife does not have a full metal frame. Handle is primarily glass-filled nylon.

I own the e33l for about more than a month now, and it has stood upto whatever cutting tasks I have thrown at the blade. Firstly, the "blade-launcher" is really good, and has no springs -- so the possibility of breakage is less. The blad is real sharp -- I could see it when my cheap knife took ages slicing through a nylon rope while the e33l took almost no time. The handle is ergonomic (larger for the blade size, which makes it a good grip). The blade really looks wicked. :)

I also liked the bottle opener, and the carabiner clip is very sturdy indeed. Overall, an excellent value for money in a ~$30 knife. My favorite EDC now.

I've owned a lot of pocket knives since my days as a Boy Scout, and few were as good as the Leatherman e33l (and its predecessor, the e304x). As a good general-purpose knife, the e304x has many advantages over earlier folders, not least being the blade launcher (it's faster and easier to open one-handed than using the thumb stud, which is a plus when dealing with a stubborn piece of rope or something else that needs to be held in place while cutting). The carabiner clip / bottle opener has proven handy time and again, too--who keeps a stand-alone bottle opener on hand any more these days? I have four of the e304x: one in my camping gear, one in my car, one in my workshop, and one until recently I carried pretty much daily.

Imagine my delight when I saw this update to the model. The e33l has a couple improvements over the e304x, amazingly enough. The overall profile of the handle is thinner, so it takes up less space in your pocket, and it's lighter by an ounce or so. The blade also has some grooves added to the base of the spine for better grip and control, and the pocket clip is improved to allow the knife to sit lower in your pocket. It even opens a little bit more smoothly, too.

The only negative I can see is that the harder steel of the blade makes it a bit harder to sharpen than other blades (154 CM stainless rather than your typical 440 stainless), but it'll keep that edge longer, too.

Basically: the e304x was a great knife, and this one is even better.

The sharpest highest quality steel blade of any knife I have ever seen. One hand open and close. Opens like a switch blade. Get it before it is illegal.

I bought this knife to use as my new edc while at work. I work in a stock room and im always opening boxes and cutting cord so i figured i would give the e33 a try. I love the fact the knife comes with 154cm as it is a great steel that keeps an edge very well. Overall the the fit and finish of the knife is pretty good except for one complaint I have about when the blade is closed, it seems to hit where the caribiner folds into the knife. Other than my one issue with the blade hitting the caribiner the knife is well built. I reallly dont like the thumb stud on the knife its just to small to be used but it doesnt really matter since it has the little flipper that you can use. Overall im happy with the knife it is a good quality knife for the money.

I love LEATHERMAN products--owning 1/2 a dozen knives--so this may be a somewhat biased review. PROS-It's a Leatherman, sharp blade, great box cutter, easy to open/close, has removable belt clip, looks nice. CONS-Smaller than it looks in picture, doesn't feel substantial. Overall, very much worth the $15 I paid for it. FOUR AND ONE HALF STARS!!
