5.0 out of 5 stars Tactical knife, February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an awesome knife. It came sharp, and has retained its edge for as long as I have had it, and can really take a pounding. This knife is very heavy, and would be an uncomfortable knife for EDC. However, since that is not its purpose, the knife performs very well in its capacity as a self defense or tactical weapon. The glass breaker is quite effective, and the knife as a whole can be used as a yawara. The safety is fully functional and works like a charm, and the MAGIC assisted opening system is fast with either the thumb studs or spine lever (the thumb studs deploy the knife quicker).

2.0 out of 5 stars Knife Sharpener, February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This knife sharpener was mediocre at best for me. It fits on keyrings easily. The carbide and ceramic slots for sharpening knifes could not put a good edge on my EDCs, and actually managed to ruin the blade on one of them, so I no longer use this. However, The diamond rod thingy is still an excellent sharpening tool, and i managed to hone many edges this way. Maybe it was the specific product I got, but the only useful thing on this sharpener is the diamond rod.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schrade Tactical Pen, February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have absolutely no issues with this knife. It's well made, is great for self defense, great for writing, and the ink cartridge inside can be easily replaced by unscrewing the capless pen. It has a solid feel to it, and it looks great, with a balance of elegance and ruggedness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Value driven., February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:The knife came out of the box razor sharp. It passed the paper and cardboard tests easily, and I could literally shave with it for a couple weeks before I started to really abuse this knife.
The serrations are amazing, and work like a small saw. Unlike typical serrations, which rip through the material, these serrations tended to actually cut.
The Speedsafe assisted opening system that this knife uses is also commendable. It's lightning fast, the flipper easy to use, and convenient for one handed opening.
The 8cr13mov blade isn't the highest quality steel, but for the price it's tough, and resharpens well.
The pocket clip is functional and can be switched between point up and point down carry.
The blade shape, and the gimping on the back of the blade make it a tough shape yet allows you to have control for precision.
The blade to handle ratio is pretty balanced (4 inch handle, 3.25 inch blade)

Cons:
The blade steel is a little on the softer side.
The knife is a little thicker than I would have liked, and may make it uncomfortable to put in your pocket.
The knife is a little bit heavier than I expected, but it's not a show stopper.
Made in China, but that's only a problem if you're a real stickler about that kind of thing.

When I first bought this knife, I was a little put off by its weight and thickness. However, after playing with the knife a bit, I took a great liking to it. It would make the perfect EDC if it were thinner and a little lighter, but for the price, this knife is a beauty. I was locked out of my car one day, and I was even able to use this knife to unlock my car door.
