Buttery Smooth Action
Kyle T.
This knife has many aesthetically pleasing aspects but it can also be put to the test and hold its own. I have this knife in my EDC rotation and it has never failed me. I was surprised to find it to be such a durable knife when I use it around the shop for small woodwork tasks or cutting thick plastic ties. What really blows me away is how smooth the action of this knife became after just a couple weeks. It flips so fast and drops with its own blade weight so well you'd think it was a Benchmade. I recommend this knife!

This is my new favorite knife. The precision tooling makes this a very smooth opening knife. It opens as smooth as an automatic. For the price you almost have to buy this knife. I bought the first one as a gift and liked it so much I bought one for myself.
