Description

Description

This Avispa model is outfitted with a textured black polymer handle scale and a D2 blade steel upgrade in a stonewashed finish. It features a proven blade design, inspired by the Laser Strike fixed blade, paired with a stainless steel frame lock handle. The Avispa is slim, comfortable, and has joined the ranks of heavy-duty performers with its latest tool steel upgrade. Add a 4-way pocket clip to the mix, and you have a contender for a slot in any EDC rotation.

The Avispa (spanish for wasp) frame lock folding knife, like the Zancudo, was designed and is fully endorsed by Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall of ESEE and Randall's Adventure & Training aka RAT.

Pros:
- Awesome steel for cheap price.
- Cool design, VERY similar to the Ontario RAT 1 in D2 steel. I bought this ONLY because the RAT 1 in Satin D2 steel with black handle has now been discontinued.
- Great feel in your hand, nice and slim, not too fat with almost no hot spots when held.
- The show side handle has a really cool texture design.
- Perfect blade centering.
- No Blade Play whatsoever

Cons:
- Came shipped with tip down carry clip. I just changed it to the tip up carry position like all good pocket knives should be. T6 torx
- The show side handle is just plastic, not G-10 or anything great. It works.
- The frame lock side is just stainless steel, nothing fancy.
- Worst of all, it has an incredible amount of lock stick. It is rather difficult to close this one handed due to the resistance you get when trying to move the lockbar out of the blade path with your thumb.
- Made in Taiwan.

I like this knife a lot, even though it has its flaws, some more blatant than others.Overall, I can't help but recommend this knife because of the quality of blade steel vs. its price. Winner.
