Great knife
William L.
Itís good
Not great
Nathan C.
I have had this knife for almost a year now. The blade is still sharp and it's still a decent flipper. Though over time many issues have began to come up. First the pivots are getting looser than I'd like them, and since you can't tighten them, I have just had to flip it like that. I have replaced the tang pin but the handles still touch each other when the knife is open. Also, since the latch is not a spring latch, it constantly gets caught in the blade. Honestly it's a decent knife for beginners, but if you are looking for a flipper, I would recommend something else.
Good for begginers

It's a good knife to get when you finally decide to get an actual blade instead of a trainer however it has some problems. For one the latch became very lose after a few weeks of use and it no longer keeps the knife closed and it tends to get in the way of flipping it. Also the pins that hold the blade on the handles were lose as soon as I took it out of its box making some tricks hard to do. Over all it's a decent price at least for me and I've used it every day for 6 months and it hasn't fallen apart
Nice for beginners

I own this knife for about a year. Here is a list of pros and cons about this knife :

+ It looks nice !
+ Came really sharp
+ Channel handles, really sturdy blade

* It is heavier, than I like (cuts really hut)
* It is more handle heavy
* It is shorter, than I would like my knife to be

- The latch Is getting in the way while flipping (fixable with a rubber band)
- Tang pin curved so the handles are touching each other in an open position
- A lot of handle play

This knife is not a pro-flipper but it costs 30$ ... I mean ... what else do you want for 30$ ? It is nice for deciding, if you are into flipping or not + you can learn some BASIC openings, rollovers or arials with it. For advanced stuff I would recommend buying something ... more (4X, Rep, 51, AB ...)
Good knife but questions..

I absolutely love the feel of the knife flipping and just the overall feel of the knife. I use it a lot and my pivot pins are loose and I've looked up how to tighten them, but the thing is I don't wanna ding the pins with a hammer unless I HAVE to. My question is, What is the best way to tighten the pins without messing them up?
Good price bad product

I hate to say a USA made product has bad quality but it did the knife came with multiple problems. First it had two very nice dings in the blade, the latch came loose to the point where I was afraid that if it was in my pocket it would lay open. This product had to be reground to get the dings out. Other than that it is a decent flipper but a little to much handle play for my liking.
