5.0 out of 5 stars Just Get It !!, November 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Um... Wow! This is an unsuspected surprise. Sturdy hollow grind came scary sharp. Nice even edge, great lock up, blade centering and retention when closed. Tip is sharp and comes to a good point. Smooth action with nylon washers. Smooth G10 scales offer good grip. Pocket clip is deep carry style but the screws will interfere. Also, the pocket clip must be removed to adjust pivot screw. Fancy opening box with magnetic closure and foam inset. Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Design but Steel is too Hard, November 16, 2014
Got mine from seller on Ebay. I really like the design and the burlwood is beautiful. Very comfy and secure grip! There is a gap on the forward right side of the spacer like it separated... no big deal though as this is a minor cosmetic error. The worse news is the unevenly ground and blunt edge that seems to be over hardened... even my diamond sharpener has a hard time cutting anything. Hopefully I will be able to grind it down to softer steel. I have many other Rough Rider knives and their 440a stainless has always been excellent before this knife. Once I get an edge it should be good. The sheath needs a plastic liner... the knife will eventually cut through.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, October 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not bad EDC for 12 bucks but not one you will pull out to impress the boys. Nice feel G10 scales. May be a bit small for larger hands but I can get all 4 fingers on board. Sturdy tip, edge and slight hollow grind on this Chinese bead blast 440b equivalent. Smooth action and solid liner lock up. Deep carry pocket clip. Thumb and butt jimping with moderate grip. Paracord will not fit through tiny lanyard hole. Very light, low budget choice... recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Value !!, August 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very nice RAT7/ESEE6 look alike in 440c stainless by Master Cutlery... the makers of M-Tech I believe. The 6 3/8" blade with 5 3/4" cutting edge came utility sharp. The full flat grind has a fairly hefty relief edge which makes this a good rough use tool. The edge grind came very symmetrical... nicely done. The blade is about 3/16" thick and tapers to a strong and even point. The PTFE coating is durable with some minor imperfections. After some short use it wears well. Thumb jimping is comfortable while adding some traction. The green G10 scales are nicely shaped with rounded edges and light/medium traction. The grip is comfortable but would be improved with a bit less belly. The sheath is very RAT like and can be modified to your liking... it's serviceable. I'm impressed with the high value here. Seems like the green and black handle models have a fine edge while the orange and micarta come with partial serrations only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Custom Looks Discount Price !!, June 23, 2014
I think Willumsen and Lansky achieved what they set out to do... offer an affordable, custom look knife that will wear like a tank and turn a few heads. They succeeded! Neither of them are afraid of weight which is a refreshing change. This knife looks and feels aggressive. The thick and wide 440c blade finishes with a strong, stone washed hollow grind and wears a brushed satin flat... nice combo. Those are not thumb studs but blades stops. The knife is opened with the flipper or cool looking thumb hole. The black and green nylon scales are nicely fitted and provide decent grip. Thumb jimping is smooth and decorative but does increase grip also. Back spacer finishes with a glass breaker/lanyard hole and looks cool. Right hand carry deep pocket clip for tip up or down option. Rock solid liner lock and good closed retention. Blade centering is good even with nylon washers. Is it sharp?... umm, Lansky's name is on it!

The only gripe I have is the fit and comfort in hand with conventional grip... thumb wrapped around the handle. It's okay but not super comfy for me. My hand fights for more forward grip as my index finger struggles against the flipper/guard so I have to make adjustments. Large to XLarge hands may have more of a problem. It's much better with thumb on spine as this naturally moves your grip back. You can choke up on the forward side of the flipper if need be and reverse grip seems to be just fine. This knife is quite useable and I recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars SICK, WILD, CRAZY VALUE !!!, June 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have about 70 folders and this one sits at the top of the pile when it comes to crazy good value and super sick quality. I had to double take when I released it from it's cardboard rest and first thought that I must have received some sort of special top secret prototype that accidentally made it's way to my address. I'm convinced that Joe Pardue (whoever he is) reached his point of self actualization and has dedicated the rest of his life to releasing smiles of joy to all those who will come... the pied piper of knife addicts! But I digress...

This knife functions flawlessly and puts to shame many knives that are many times the price. Lock up is rock solid. Action is silky smooth. Steel is finely milled and honed. Grip is steadfast. Styling is pleasing to the eye... need I go further? Look, don't even hesitate on this one... no need to think about it. just stick it in your cart and hit the check out button. There is no way you will possibly regret it... I'm serious, go ahead... do it already! Recommended by a diseased knife sicko!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Brainer... Just Buy It!!, June 8, 2014
Typical Kershaw quality and function with no surprises. Great EDC that comes razor sharp with top notch fit and finish. The Speed Safe system works flawlessly as usual and finishes with a rock solid lock up... no side to side or up and down play. Love the stonewash finish and blade design. Strong tip and edge with a slight hallow grind and nifty spanto style tip. The thumb jimping is functional and I love the finger flipper design alleviating the need for thumb studs. K-texture gives decent grip and the handle shape is fairly comfy. The deep carry left or right tip up pocket clip is just fine. Back spacer has good size slot for paracord lanyard. My only complaint is that the liner lock does not protrude enough past the opposite liner to easily disengage the lock with my thumb... not sure if mine is just cut shorter or they are all like this. I manage though. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet Please !!, March 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A great value pack. The material and zippers do not make a lot of noise which is essential when stalking your prey. Good carrying capacity (seems bigger than 219 cubic inches) and very comfortable riding on your waist. Any type of water bottle carrier can easily be attached if needed. I would not hesitate to recommend this item for under 20 bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Light Weight Cutter !, January 25, 2014
Don't let the 13" length scare you away if you need a light weight backpacking saw. This is extremely light for the size and with blade guard attached can easily slip inside your pack or attach to the outside. The coated blade and finely finished teeth cut effortlessly through even large branches or trees. Now, it's not a speed saw but it still moves through wood fairly quick without jamming. This is a big Plus to me. You can check it out at Walmart. "Always let the saw do the cutting". Recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bob should write less and minister more!, December 3, 2013
A total waste of time. Being a christian I understand the importance of the scriptures but what purpose does his little rag bring us? So this women wrote a book about her perception of what she experienced and this guy trashes her thoughts. He may want to think that this may be the start of a journey that causes her to pursue God more and do this world some good. I don't think she ever claimed to be some kind of authority but was just sharing her experience. Mary Neal never said she was writing gospel either. I hope she ignores this guy and continues to work out her relationship with God. Bob needs to spend more time ministering and less time writing this kind of stuff.

Funny that some gave this book 5 stars thinking they were reviewing Mary's book.
