Not bad
Chris H.
It's a solid, nice knife but it is very, very stiff. Requires two hands to open and the release on the back is also extremely stiff and almost hurts to push down. But if you're manlier than I am (which you probably are) this won't be a big issue, and really isn't a deal breaker for me. Otherwise a very solid, big knife that is extremely sharp and cut through rugs very easily.
Not bad at all...

I bought this because I like the fact that is an all stainless steel knife and I really like this style of folder. I switched from a Puma Warden of the same style and shape to this knife as my EDC. The reversible pocket clip is nice. I wasn't sure of what to expect from an Asian made $17 dollar knife but I was not disappointed when it arrived. The weight in your hand is good. More heft than my Warden which is the same size and length blade. Stainless steel is heavy and I like that. The G10 panels on the handle are nice as well and it seems like a rugged no-nonsense type utility blade that is good for everything. If you lose one while fishing or something it isn't really a big deal at only $17. I'd rather lose a $17 knife than a $100 knife. I regularly eat with it. Minimal side to side play in the blade and a solid lock up as well. I like it so much I'll probably buy a few more at this price and give them to friends. Oil it well when you get it because it actually took a little while for it to loosen up enough to be opened with one hand. The oil helps.
