Amazing EDC
Richard G.
It's an inexpensive Rick Hinderer! I know it's lower quality materials, but this knife really can take a beating. I gave it to a friend (his first knife) and he seriously abused the knife. Surprisingly, as far as functionality goes, it just needed sharpening and the pivot slightly tightened. The abuse this knife took would have given other knives some serious blade play.

I did a simple knife pimping by swapping the 1555BLKST and 1555TI blades. Made both blades look 10 times better!
