This is a great lightweight knife but sturdy, the lock is nice and strong. The knife its self is a great user, no need to worry about dinging it up. To me there's not much to complain about, its a $20 dollar knife that can used and abused and if need be replaced for cheap
Ergonomically, this knife is fine. The hole in the blade isn't really large enough or far enough out to make one-handed opening easy, but it works OK. The lock-back is nice, and probably my favorite feature of the knife. Aesthetically, it feels like someone just kind of drew an outline of a knife and didn't fill any details in. It's a half-formed abstract blob of a knife, without any real distinguishing features. It's like the shmoo of the knife world. This is my least favorite thing about it. Because I'm not all that fond of this knife, it's spent the last four & a half years as my "digging in the dirt" knife. Basically, everything people do with a knife that you really shouldn't do with a knife, I use this knife for it. Prying, scraping, digging... it's had a very rough life and been dull for most of it because I recognize the futility of sharpening a knife that I'm going to relentlessly abuse. So, while I still don't really *like* this knife, I've come to the conclusion that it's basically indestructible. I've clogged the pivot with dirt dozens of times, pried rocks out of the ground, scraped corrosion off my battery terminals with it, and all you need to do is rinse it off and oil it a little and the blade will drop closed. And it has no blade play. I've thought I was going to break the blade off a few times prying things, but somehow the pivot & lock are still tight and sound. So, basically, it's a perfectly adequate knife. From the standpoint of durability, utility, and price I don't know how you'd improve on it.
Couldn’t get it to hold an edge. Trashed it.
