Customer Reviews

Used for 8 - 10 years..
Robert B. on Jun 10, 2018

Love the weight, some would find heavy but I thought it felt solid and strong. Felt great in my hand, easy to control, solid lock. After more than 8 years of heavy use I lost it, left in a hotel room somewhere. Need to replace as soon as possible. I had the lost knife engraved "US Army 1980-2000" maybe there will be a miracle and it will be returned.

Robert R. on Sep 20, 2017

Durable strong rugged. Not the lightest knife but still my edc. Blade deployment was a little slow but may have been faster after broken in. I didn't feel like waiting so went ahead and installed the mega spring by knife kits. Now the action is crazy fast and I love the knife. Also love the high grip g-10 handle 's and glass breaker. Fits in hand perfect. Highly recommended

Awesome sauce

Chunky, beefy and unlike most automatics, no blade play. Like the glass breaker
