In fact, there was a pilot hole drilled on the inside of the knife for the pin, but it wasn't drilled all the way through. I cut my own pin for it from a length of brass rod, drilled out the pilot holes a bit so it would fit, and installed it. That problem is now solved.
Secondly, the blade is ground very unevenly, which affects how the knife cuts, and the convex portion of the grind is very abrupt, which makes the knife difficult to sharpen, and causes it to tend to lose its edge more quickly than it really should. I solved this issue by disassembling the knife and putting a better grind on it with my belt sander. It now keeps an edge far longer, and I can get it sharper than I could before. I also evened up the grind bevel, so it cuts more effectively.
The third issue is purely aesthetic. The handles of the knife are very roughly shaped, and look to be simply dipped in polyurethane, which drips and bubbles around the edges. The finish is uneven and ugly. The two handle halves didn't match up very well, either. I sanded off the finish, and sanded all the rough edges smooth with the two halves screwed together, so in the end, everything was matching and flush.Read more ›
Update: Been carrying this for quite a while now, still a great knife. I've heard people complain that it's awkward to open, but try carrying it spine forward, tang up.
Reach into your pocket and grasp with the end of the tang in the middle of your hand.
Pull from your pocket and swing out the handle.
Opens really quick that way and is ready to use. Don't try to open it like a knife with a thumbstud...
It is a very nice carbon steel blade that I've sharpened at 20 degrees and stropped to a great working edge. A little oil on the blade regularly to protect the carbon steel from the elements (here in SWFL, near the Gulf Coast, the elements can take a toll on neglected knives of any type), and it is going to last a long time.
Adjusting the tension on this knife is ridiculously easy. It is a friction folder that only requires turning the two screws with a flat-head screwdriver for the desired results. Should you want to change the setup? Just grab a screwdriver again.
The stout, simple wooden handles are crude, but probably meant to be that way. I've applied boiled linseed oil and will do so again on a not infrequent basis to help protect the grips, which feel nice in the hand.
Simple, solid construction. There are few parts, and the parts are generally made very well.
If you are looking for a tacti-cool folder, this isn't it. This is a version of an agricultural worker's basic tool from about the time of the Renaissance. It works well at cutting open bags, twine, twigs, and doing a variety of basic things. Think of what peasants typically did with working knives back in the day, and you have a wide range of appropriate uses for this nice instrument.
It is not locking. For what it was intended to do, that wasn't really needed.Read more ›

This is a beautiful knife. It needs about twenty minutes of tuning with very simple items; sand paper, mineral oil, flat screw driver. You can adjust it to what you want. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
