Otherwise, the product came in earlier that expected and came in the manufacturing box with reading material.
Can't go wrong with this brand.
I hardly use this knife at all and only carried around on daily basis. I only used it to cut open Amazon boxes and showed it off to my friends. Last month the tip was broken one day after I got home and I had no idea how it broke!( I did not drop it on any hard surface and didn't use it on anything harder than Amazon shipping boxes.) Just curios if anyone has the same problem. Time to look for a new knife.... >_< Changed it to 3 stars.
The knife itself is very thin, at only about 1/4" thickness. It consists basically of three sheets of metal, one for each handle and another for the blade, sandwiched together. You could tuck it inside your waistband for comfortable all-day carry. Most other knives are 1/2" or more.
The index finger stud/flipper swings around in the opened position to reinforce the finger choil. In the open position, I feel my hand is safe from sliding up the blade, even in hard use. If I wanted something more grippy, like G10, I'd just add some skateboard friction tape.
So now for the problems:
First, the liner lock does not engage enough for me to feel comfortable. The liner lock already is thinner steel, based on the thin profile of the handle material, plus it only engaged about 20% on the blade. That made me very nervous.
Second, when you change the clip to tip up carry, it exposes a large silver pivot screw. That's not a big deal, as I could cold blue it well enough. I posted a photo.
Third, there's no thumb stud. That probably is not a big deal to most people who will buy the knife, but it's a huge deal to me since I'm in California. That's my bad because I didn't look at the photo close enough. I love the knife enough that I would have paid money to weld on a thumb stud, if the thinness of the liner lock wasn't a deal killer for me.
If I didn't live in California and wanted a lighter duty EDC, this would be perfection. Frankly, I don't think there's a better light duty EDC around, especially for the price.Read more ›
It feels good in the hand and conceals well. Very sharp!
