Love this knife - so slim in pocket with a nice long blade. Doesn't flip as smoothly as some flippers, (my Civivi Shredder for example), but also doesn't fail to open. I'd love a deep carry pocket clip for this knife. I also really like it's larger brother the M16-04ks - great designs.
Had this knife for a year now and have gravitated towards it over all my other knives. Have bought two other m16s because of it. Great knife all around.
I bought this for EDC use. It’s performed well, but it’s a bit on the heavy side for its size. The lock mechanism is smooth and easy to manipulate with one hand. The belt clip is a bit shorter than what I’m used to, but it arrived nice and tight. The flip feature on this knife makes it loads of fun to mess with.
I bought this knife to keep with me while backpacking in the swamp. I liked the idea that it would shed water and mud easily. My only complaint is the action is really stiff, most times the knife does not fully deploy unless I give a strong wrist flick with the opening action. Also, as a lefty, I really struggle with this frame lock. It’s become a two-handed open and close for me.
I use this knife everyday and it works amazing. the only problem i have with it is that the clip gets easily caught and bent out. its a pain to bend back too. other than that it works mint.
