Description

Description

This Tactical P-1 Pocket knife features a black DLC finished blade with a plain cutting edge. The aluminum handle is plum marble anodized and features black hardware and pocket clip.

The Piranha P-1 Pocket series is functional and stylish with a good feel. The 154-CM blade is drop-point styled. It opens with a commanding kick and locks solidly into place. The lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum handle is hard anodized and features recessed grooves for added gripping power. Also, the knife is very thin which makes it quite comfortable for pocket carry with the titanium clip.

Aesthetics:
Not much to say here. The whole P1 lineup looks fantastic. Whether you choose a marble/black combo, or the awesome pale pink/satin.
Thumbs up for Piranha!

Size, weight, ease of carry:
This is very important for a knife this size, and the P1 does not disappoint.
There is no distraction in having this in the pocket. Thanks to the excellent pocket clip, it sits securely without dragging the pocket. In my own opinion, a lanyard is not necessary, but a lanyard hole is included. Also, note, the knife does not carry deep in the pocket, and leaves a small bit of the handle exposed.

Materials, durability:
You can simply read that the handle is 6061-T6 aluminum, and the blade is 154CM steel...
However.
I would love to tell you about how tough both of those are. A number of times, this knife hit the ground, with no damage suffered. Concrete, wood, tile, gravel.
The light weight and smooth handle surface help to mitigate most types of damage.
As far as rust goes, I have had zero problems with this knife in the last couple of years. Keep your blade lightly oiled and maintained, and you will have much the same result.

Speed, lockup:
The little P1 is quick as lightning. The button is easily found, as the pivot is hidden. You won't have any issues in finding the button, or mistaking an exposed pivot screw as the deployment.
The button is fairly easy to depress quickly and smoothly.
The thin, light blade, and fairly powerful coil work together for a flawless speed.
Lockup is excellent, but not perfect. Mine has the slightest amount of play, side to side. Vertical lockup is solid.
Deploying from the pocket is nice and easy, as well.

Price, competitive options:
We don't have anything bad to say here, either. At $115 for a $180 knife, and all the things you get in return, I say don't sit on the fence. Get it.
But what are your other options?
The closest competition (in my opinion) would be the Benchmade 2551 or a few from Kershaw's Launch series.
As this knife is essentially a clone of the 2550/2551, we can start there.
I prefer the price, handle milling, symmetry, hidden pivot, and color selection of the P1. The 2550/2551's safety is also a turn-off.

Bottom line: The P1 is worth the money.
PS: No jimping! But it's not a huge deal.
