Customer Reviews

Great knife
Harry Y. on Aug 2, 2020

This knife is incredible for something under $100. No blade play when open, smooth action and super sharp. I wouldn’t put it to any heavy work because it would most likely break the tip, though.

Great Value for the Money
Tom J. on Oct 5, 2020

Fast shipping from Blade HQ. Good quality knife. As others have said, it is sharp out of the box, very snappy/strong action and lightweight.

Kershaw once again......2 blades up
Jack B. on Oct 2, 2020

Kershaw in my opinion dominates the auto knife market for the consumer not looking to drop their whole pay check on one knife. Im truly happy with my purchase; the handle is smooth and looks bad AF and the button release is epic with a blade that just springs to action with seamless motion and a THUMPTH that few other autos pocess. Buy it if you are looking for a cutting tool with an ability to pierce and slice with flawless accuracy in very tight spaces that only stilleto style blades thrive in.
