What a blade!!!
Alisha R.
This is an amazing flipper especially for the price!! Hands down one of the best production flippers, so smooth even after a year+ with no oiling. Little bigger and heavier then what I would normally EDC but still one of my go to's when picking a folder for the day
Fantastic knife
sean w.
absolutely fantastic flipper action on this one. Blade is a bit on the long side but is still very comfortable for edc. the design is solid and the fit and finish is more than you expect for the price in my opinion.
Very nice

I'm new to buying knives. Found this on clearance and love it. Fits my hand better than I thought it would. It's very comfortable. Action on the blade is so smooth. Came with an extremely sharp factory edge. I used it on my job yesterday and it cut through the boxes and strapping tape like they were butter.
Smooth and sassy.
Pat S.
What can I say, I love it. It makes a great EDC piece, especially for under 60 bucks. The blade steel isn't my favorite personally, however it does sharpen easily and has held up quite well. It feels great in hand. The IKBS system is excellent, the knife flips smooth. Lock up and centering is spot on.
Great knife!
Tabor T.
It's awesome design. It feels good in your hand and doesn't want to slip out of your hand. I've had this knife for several years and I've only ever had to sharpen it 3 maybe 4 times. It's a must have!
Okay steel, decent build, great action.

The good: the ergonomics and build quality are fairly solid.
The great: the action on this with the IKBS is just stellar and its a drop free sort of affair and flies out of the handle when used in conjunction with the flipper tab.

The bad: the pocket clip is very finicky in a way that means if you bump it hard enough to loosen both the screws it jiggles around in your pocket and you can tighten down the screws again but it will never be just as tight as it was out of the box.

The ugly: the price on this is $60 and for 8CR13MOV that's a little steep but, with a very unique design such as this and a just stellar action I think it could be worth $50 but maybe not the $60 they're asking for it.
Final Verdict: if you're looking for a BIG folder with a bit of a crazy design and you're okay with a not great slicer then this might be for you, but it's not gem, at least not for me.

I bought this knife just out of curiosity as it was large, cheap and has IKBS. Folks right out of the box this knife fires open like a ZT 0801. 8CR13MOV is not bad steel. I actually like my copy so much I am going to have it pro sharpened. The handle needs just a touch more G10 material.
Smoother'an butter

Took a while to break in, but glad I did it, it's perfect to play with, pocket clip is crap though.
Hayden L.
This folder is silky smooth opening and closing. Lockup is solid with no play. Takes a great edge. Love the spacers on the pocket clip. So smooth, it's practically assisted.
