Overall, I love this knife. The blade has no movement side to side and is very sharp. I was a bit worried about the clip, but haven't had any problems with it. Only real complaint I have is that there are some minor blemishes with the finish on the blade. When I first got it, it took two hands to open the blade. After playing with it for a while (10-15 minutes),I had no problems opening the blade with one hand.

Wow, this is my new favorite knife!

A rugged Post-Apocalyptic ECD, just like Gerber said it would be. For the time being I will use this as a Pre-Apocalyptic EDC!

Rick Grimes has this knife in a Modified Clip Point version, and he seemed to really have alot of fun with it. So I wanted to give this one a shot in the Tanto. I may have to get the other one too after playing around with this, it is just that nice. Might be cool to have one of each blade type so you can carry the same knife for different situations.

Wicked sharp right out of the package. Just touch that Tanto blade to paper and it melts right through it.

The weight of the knife feels great. Some say it's too heavy, but I say it's just built well. There is metal all inside the handle to support the pommel and locking mechanism. Everything feel 100% secure. You will love the way this beast feels in your hand!

Some people have stated that they can not open this one handed and will need to pry it open with both hands...I was able to open this one handed immediately (very easily in fact), and if you have the right wrist flick you can open it without using any thumb studs at all. The action is so clean, you'll almost get addicted to opening it. I haven't had a knife that made me smile this much ever.

I wasn't sure on the "wedge lock", as I have never had a knife with one, but I have to say I like it alot. You don't "need" to pull both sides down at the same time but you can if you want. (A cool little fun fact that I found just from playing with it is, if you depress the wedge lock with your thumb, you can give a gently but firm wrist flick and the blade deploy's as fast as the AUTO version). It's really cool, never had a knife I could do that with.

this knife is simple incredible. it's very sharp right out of the box, it's extremely durable, has a neat metal/ hard plastic tough grip to it. this knife is perfect for persoanl protection in a boot or even jeans pocket. pocket clip isn't that good so i just unscrewed that part off...

only one issue with it- do not expect that this knife is a one-hand open. it does take two hands to pry this sucker open. once halfway opened,the thumb of the carrying hand can do the rest. i have practiced pulling the knife out and opening it, and honestly, within 10min you can get it down to a T.

try looking at some youtube vid reviews for more inofrmation... thanks, Nick.

Very pleased with this knife! Much nicer than I expected. Excellent value for the price. Purchased the 06 F.A.S.T. first for it's tanto blade, but this is a much beefier and solid knife. Although not "spring assisted", the blade can be deployed very quickly with a flick of the wrist. I ended up buying another one just for my display collection. Highly recommend! Only drawback is it doesn't come with an optional sheath, although the reversible belt clip is nice, tight, and durable.

Still made in the USA...I could probably stop there. I have a much higher end military issue Gerber and my son has been eyeballing it over the past several years. Mine is literally heirloom quality. While this Tanto is not quite at that level - this is a beautiful knife and something he will have the rest of his life.

My son makes Eagle Scout in the spring and caries a knife almost all the time outside of school. I want to stop buying him Chinese made junk and start buying him quality pieces that he can carry into adulthood.

The Tanto is balanced well, excellent fit and finish and just looks awesome. For the price here on amazon, it cannot be beat.

wow I love this thing. Ive been backpacking for some time and take this thing with me everywhere. It clips in my pocket nice and easy, has some surprising heft to it and feels study as hell. The open and close action is super smooth and its very comfortable

This is a nice knife with great steel. I meant to order the auto version of this knife and was a little disapointed when I realized it wasnt. after using it for a couple days it has really grown on me... It really holds an edge.

Excellent knife. A bit stiff at first, but after a while it opens smooth and easy. The blade is NOT s30v steel on the manual DMF, only the Automatic DMF has a s30v blade, but cost 3-4 times as much as the manual version. The Manual DMF blade is 7Cr17MoV Stainless Steel with a G-10 handle.
