Repackaging- 2 star. Like warm disappointed. After a long and exhausting day from some intense yard work, I had been refreshing the ups page just Waiting for something to happen. As the time passed 7:08, I checked the page that usually read " Estimated delivery Wednesday, June 23 by 7:00 pm. What a let down to see "we have updated your estimated delivery time" . Its okay, I'm used to dissapeaintment. I proceeded to leave the porch light on till roughly 10. They made it, but about 23 minutes late. Sorry dude, should of been faster. But I'll be Damned if that was the worst part. Being impatient is worth it. But the "packaging" of you can even call it that is disappointing, and that's feels like an understatement. A $80 knife (appreciate how I have the courtesy to put the dollar sign in front, like your supposed to) in a 5 cent cardboard box with a peace of paper (certification paper) and a nice fabric sleve that actually has some sort of value. Nothing fancy, but theres definitely more thought put into this fabric sleve for this knife than there was put into the company that manufacturers these knifes and ships em. I'd challenge them to a duel if I could. Box lid came open (left side), wasn't a surprise though because theres a knife having a slip n' slide inside. Knife is dope, I appreciate the fact that they use bubble wrap envelopes, or whatever their called. Sucks this knife is a gift, really want it for myself....
Very nice knife and handle, works well enough as a tool and flips alright and smooth, very dressy as well. The screws for me were lose a bit and needed to be maintained after just a few hours so I would just be cautious out of the box.
I read the reviews and thought nothing of them because I wanted badly to love this knife. I'm a sucker for wood handles and the knife itself was a good side. However, other reviews weren't kidding when they mention this brand has quality issues. Even with a threadlocker and tightening it and oiling it, it still falls apart and gets loose. At this point, it has so much play I can compare it to my cheap Amazon knives. Additionally, unlock other knives in its price range (large boker plus balisongs, Kershaw Lucha), it just doesn't flip well. It's not on bushings or bearings, just plain old washers. The blade also doesn't hold its edge well nor does it sharpen too well (though I'm no expert.) Overall the quality is something I'd compare to the Benchmark knives sold on this site and for the price, I'd say get a Boker plus or Kershaw Lucha
Its a very smooth and very sharp knife, it feels nice and is very nice quality. But the handles are held on with two screws and they tend to fall apart after use. So you need to keep a constant eye on how loose is becoming and keep it tight.
I recently bought this knife, hoping that it was worthy of the price tag. Sadly it’s not. The wood handles on my blade have damage on them and the wood does not match on any of the panels they cut out for it. The locking latch on mine fell out. I was able to put it back in but now it’s barely fictional. I’m giving two stars however as the blade atleast came with an good edge and the site and delivery was excellent in getting it here in a timely manner. My advise, do not buy from this maker and look for other options. I have a super cheap unbranded knife I used to use for every day carry. I have had that for over a year and its already outlasting this one. I have Did as another review has on here and oiled it, I do hope that helps but it indeed not worth it at all. Edit: The handles screws fell out on one side so I’ll be putting this to one star
