Customer Reviews

Guardian tactical 4.0
Kirt W. on Nov 27, 2022

So many compliments on this knife. Opens smoother than my combat troodon and I really like that knife.

One very important component is trash!!
JASON W. on Mar 14, 2023

The pocket clip is absolutely unacceptable for a knife of this price and quality. Minus the pocket clip this knife is easily a 10 out of 10. With the pocket clip its almost a 5/10 for me. The clip is too flimsy, easily bendable, too sharp, attached to poorly to the knife.
