After installing that, the clip works wonderfully! If it came this was I'd give it 5 stars. Beautiful knife with smooth elegant movement!
Very nice movement
Very nice feel in hand
Very good build quality
VERY slim and sexy looking. I just LOVE the way this knife looks and feels!
Interesting pocket clip (see bad parts below). I like that I can pinch it with two fingers and slide it right into my pocket without PRESSING the knife along the pocket edge. If you imagine...well...literally any other type of pocket clip...you can picture how you have to press it into the edge of the pocket material to allow the up-sweep to slip into place and slide into the pocket. Sometimes you don't press hard enough, or at the wrong angle...and have to pull the knife back out and try again. Not a huge issue. But with this clip you'll quickly get used to just gripping the clip itself to slide it in and NEVER miss the pocket-edge due to how much the clip can be pulled away from the knife. Kinda' nifty. Makes for a nice experience.
Mediocre steel. Expect to touch-up the blade daily if you put any sort of use into it. It WILL sharpen to a good edge. It WON'T keep it for very long. Will it last as long as many other blades in this price-range? Yes. The steel used is seldom seen (from what I've found) but it is a "decent" blade steel that you would expect to find on a knife at this price-point.
Pocket clip is KIND-OF weak. Jeans? Zero issues. Thin and slick material like some gym shorts might not allow the clip to get enough grip. I've had these knives fall out in my car quite often. The car is low to the ground and my knees end up higher than my hips...so it really is an issue with anything I put in my pockets. Knives I've never had an issue with due to clipping into the pockets...but this one can sometimes slip out. Any NORMAL sitting position shouldn't be a problem...or if you're wearing jeans.
If you're the type to get anal about edges...they could have done a slightly better job with the frame-lock cut-out on the TOP edge. Where the frame-lock is cut perpendicular to the handle-edge...the little 3-4 millimeter edge...that is a bit sharp. Personally, it doesn't bother me. But if I were to be ultra critical - it could become an annoying pressure point if the knife was used extensively all day.
If I could buy this knife at $300 with titanium handles and S35VN steel or similar...I would jump for joy and hit the purchase button immediately. This low-cost "disposable" knife is WAY TOO AWESOME and I'd love a high-end version.
Amazing design. Another knockout by Ken Onion. Love the feel.
It came gritty, as in the opening action had some sand or dust already in there.
Definitely doesn't pop out like the Kershaw Leek.
Built in clip takes some getting used to.
Liner lock is really flimsy and barely catches the blade enough to engage.
Had really high hopes for this but I was very disappointed. The search continues.
