Beautiful, Do It All Knife
John D. on Mar 18, 2020

Upon unboxing the first thought is "man thats huge" but it feels and carries like an every day carrier. Cuts paper thin apple slices and chops the core with equal ease. Highly recommend !

Great Knife!
Te B. on Jan 22, 2020

For the price, it's a great knife. Beefy wide blade, great for most EDC tasks and then some. It looks like it could take a beating and keep coming back for more. And while the steel is budget steel... thats not a game breaker for me. I enjoy sharpening my knives and can get this blade to a razor sharp edge.

Very cool knife !!

All about this knife is awesome , good quality for the price. I think that have a little bit more blade surface to make longer slice cuts .

Gregg Q. on Jul 25, 2018

Total beast of a knife. Feels like a roll of nickels in the hand. I like the thumb hole opening, it is reminiscent of the Spyderco designs. I am able to flick it open with my middle finger, which I like. Frame lock is super sturdy. Highly recommend this knife.

Big Beefy Boy!
Isaac S. on Jan 20, 2018

This knife is a beefy one! Despite that it fits and feels great in the hand. I'm a huge fan of Jesper Voxnaes designs and style. This knife is extremely sturdy and the handle is very ergonomic. It's not my first pic for edc because of its size and weight but still worth it. Great value and superior quality.

More than expected
Nick L. on Jan 6, 2018

If you like a thick, beefy, and comfortable knife this the one to buy. I'm in the construction field and this is the one I carry all the time and it holds up very well.

Built like a tank
John G. on Feb 14, 2017

I love the Batum. This is an ideal EDC blade. Great fit and finish and the finger choil is just right for control...

david b. on Feb 12, 2017

I bought and have been carrying this knife every day for almost two weeks. Now it is an amazing design, outstanding performance, out of the box razor sharp, very comfortable grip, love the g10! The frame lock is very secure, the centering is spot on, over all I could not be happier with this knife. It is exactly what they say, it is a go anywhere, do anything knife.

Mini grip review. Batum
Jake c. on Jan 21, 2018

This knife is like a fire axe for your pocket . This thick all the way throug and g10 scales with finger spaces let you get a great close grip . It’s a lot of fun to carry such a powerful goodlooking knife , it’s perfect for the money , just be warned people might be shocked when you take this beast out of your pocket to open a box.
