Customer Reviews

Brian J. on Feb 23, 2023

I really like this knife, especially for the price. Can't go wrong with this. Feels nice and substantial but not heavy. I cut a magazine with this in front of my wife. She even paused the tv to tell me to get out of the living room. That's how you know it's a good piece.

Quality control could be better
Jarod Q. on Oct 26, 2017

After receiving this knife in the mail I expected to receive a knife of similar quality to my Ka-Bar 02-1220, but, was disappointed to see the blade was ground unevenly. More noticeably at the tip of the blade, where the cutting edge extends more into the anodized coating of the blade than on the other side. Other than the uneven blade grind, which should be an easy fix, the knife has no other issues.
