Launch 4
Michael S. on Aug 24, 2018

Sharp blade,fast and easy to open. Compact size but fits perfectly in my hand and looks amazing.

Excellent neck knife
Christopher T. on Aug 27, 2018

I bought it with the Linos neck sheath and love it. Sharp and fast little knife. The button feels a little gritty at first but after firing it a bunch it smooths out.

Quality. Good steel. Snaps hard enough to satisfy.
Gregg O. on Dec 10, 2019

I usually carry full size folder (zt 0560, modded spyderco resilience, CS Rajah II, etc) I love carbon steel blades because they beat "super steels" in everything except corrosion, and honestly, I like a patinaed blade better than one with scratches and snail trails. This little sucker snaps hard and fast, especially with a little break in and then a clean and disassemble, lightly lubing the contact points. A little more break in and it's bananas. You're carrying a little flake of obsidian that's easy to sharpen, and has some nice style. Pocket clip works and if you replace it you'll get a little snake bite where the clip was resting. It's a pretty little bit of pocket jewelry that functions well as a tool. Wish the grind angle was slicier, but then you lose a lot of aesthetics in the blade grind. The launch 10 is the answer to that, but no carbon steel and it looks more like a gas station knife to me(but I've said that about $300 mid techs, so what do I know). This little monster is just awesome. I'd hate to have to use it for a defensive blade, but I'd rather have it than nothing, especially after replacing the good factory edge with 10 min on the rods. It's a pretty little utility blade, but an apple slicer she ain't. I tried, the grind is just too fat. So today is the modded Resilience for food prep/emergency use, and the Launch 4 Carbon Damascus for a little razor that's fun to snap open. Also, if you don't know, carbon steel can make your meal taste a bit like it was cooked next to a grinder, so I wouldn't slice acidic foods with it unless you're into that sort of thing... ;)

One of my favorite knives.
Mark G. on Oct 10, 2019

I've owned three Launch 4s but sadly still have two. I 'lost' my black Damascus while vacationing and was a sad individual. I immediately replaced it but with a plain blade since the Damascus versions were sold out and used it on a regular basis. I was so excited when the gray Launch 4 with a Damascus blade became available I immediately bought it. I rotate my blades when I carry and this Launch 4 is in my rotation more frequently than my others because it's so cool, functional and has a great style.

By far my favorite most expensive box cutter
Anthony M. on Feb 22, 2019

I always take this to work when I know I have a large box load. Spends the whole day just cutting away. I enjoy that immensely.
