Mine came out of the box being flicked open and drop shutting. While it may feel a tad grainyÖitís a $50 blade. Take it apart and clean it. With that being said, youíre getting a micarta scale, frame lock, acid washed frame/blade, black hardware and D2 steel. I love this thing more than some of my $200 plus Spydies and Benchmades. Itís also on phosphor bronze washers which I didnít see advertised but it definitely should be.

I wasn't planning on getting a Pilar, but this one has some of my favorite features, those being brown micarta and acid stonewash finish. As others have stated, the action is quite stiff. I just assumed it wasn't meant to be flicked open, but I can do it with just the right technique, and the beefy lock bar clicks it open with confidence.

The practicality of this knife is somewhat limited. It's really short, so I often find that the material I'm cutting slips back into the choil. Also, the blade stock is so thick, it gets stuck in stiffer materials. For day to day package opening and rope cutting, it does the job while looking nice and being compact. The best thing about this knife is the ergonomics. It essentially turns your thumb into a blade. Not perfect, but pretty damn good.

I have the basic Pilar. Action feels similar on mine. On the stiff side but it will loosen over time and with a little lube. I don't know if it says so in the description but it has was appears to be phosphorus bronze washers. Long story short, this is the one you want.
Very Nice for the Price

This is my first Pilar and it came out of the box with a very stiff action. After cleaning it out, disassembling, sanding down the internal micarta, sanding down the detente ball, and contouring the lockbar the action is butter smooth (for a 44$ crkt). I can now spidey-flick it with almost no wrist. like knives with a thick stock and that I'm not worried to use and this fits both those bills (with a 4 finger grip on top of that)

Tldr; the action got smoother with some cleaning and it's a useful little knife.
Beautiful Knife, Bad Action

I bought this knife about a week after it came out and as soon as I saw it, I was in awe. However, upon opening the knife, I found the action to be extremely stiff. Far beyond justification for the break in period. Long story short, Iíve had it apart 3 times and done several modifications to the washer on the lock side, and Iím about to work on it again! I really like this knife, but unfortunately, the action is 2 to 3 times worse than the $29 Pilar! Outrageous! So, if you like the looks, but donít mind some modifications, get it! If you want a Pilar for function, get the standard model.
