What a GREAT knife!!!!!
Chris M. on Jul 23, 2021

I have numerous knives, many bought through BladeHQ and this is one of my FAVORITES!! The action is so smooth and crisp, razor sharp, great feel, and construction. Seems very well made and I honestly cant keep my hands off it. BUY IT YOU WILL LOVE IT....

Could Use More Jimping (haha)
STEVEN G. on Dec 26, 2020

This is a jimping beast! When I first saw the Hornet, I was immediately taken in by its rhino-esque shape and seemingly aggressive jimping. However, it's one of my most comfortable knives due to all the chamfering. The is my 2nd Bestech knife, and I'm quickly becoming a fan. Great action. Good ergos. Awesome value. Up to date, I have 5 Bestechs and they're all fun to flip. I could fidget with any one of them all day long. I now am setting my sights on their higher-end knives, so I'm already looking towards their $100+ and $200+ knives, they've impressed me that much. In the meanwhile, the Hornet is definitely worth the purchase, especially if you like texture. Best of success with your EDC, and enjoy the slice!

Great Knife

Love this Hornet. I wanted a large Kizer Sheepdog, but I got this instead. Great quality at a better price. Couldn't find the large Sheepdog anyway. Highly recommend this knife.

This is the first knife I bought for over $30 and I have to say it’s become my favorite. The ball bearing makes it such a smooth opener, it fits nicely in the hand and the D2 blade stays sharp for a long time. It’s suprisingly good at stabbing into bags and such, and there are multiple ways you can hold it. I highly recommend this knife to anyone looking for a new EDC.

Ya know what they call it when great ergonomics meet sweet design ques (the entire knife is gimping for god sakes!) with respectable materials (a D2 blade!)all wrapped up with probably the best value I have seen on a knife to date? Perfection!

Really cool knife
robert b. on Jun 22, 2018

This is my first clever style blade. I've carried it for a few days and really like it. The egos are solid, decent edge out of the box and great action. My 2nd Bestech I'm really impressed with the quality for the price. Not surprised this color is sold out already. Thinking a titanium frame with carbonfiber scales would be killer if your listening Bestech
