Customer Reviews

Finally a swing guard automatic that has a pivot screw
Christopher p. on Jul 24, 2023

For the individuals saying that the swing guard has too much wobble all you have to do is take a tack hammer and place the rivet holding it on a flat surface and simply tap on it until you achieve the desired tightness if you tap too much of course it's going to cause abrasion on the blade and it won't close or open properly that's for the guy who gave this knife two stars conversely of course you could also put it in advice and just compress the rivet. Otherwise this knife is awesome it's sharp it's polished it's action is snappy and as I mentioned in the title it's got a pivot screw so you can actually adjust your blade pivot unlike most where it is just a permanent rivet

Unexpectedly nice

A beefy 11”. Good value for the price. Opens nice but not close to jumping out of your hand. I’d purchase again.

Too much wobble in the guard
TRAVIS M. on Apr 20, 2023

I lived in Italy for several years. They have always been extremely aware of quality regarding things made there. I’ve also owned several AKC, 70’s and modern switchblades from Italy. This knife seemed like it was made in some 3rd world garage. Not very much attention to detail and the Swinguard wobbles waaaaay too much! Horrible quality. Only good thing was I only paid the $109 and not full price here!
