Customer Reviews

Work knife
Michael S. on Dec 10, 2015

I was going to give it 3 stars, but for the price, it deserves 4. Bought mine for about 4 bucks more a few years back for strictly a beater work knife. Easy to sharpen, tough, feels good in hand, not terrible looking. However, you need two tools to take it apart so I never have, just just dropped oil in there, slow deploying, not top grippy, the pIvot screw doesn't stay tight. Still works good after 2 years though, I like it and would recommend it.

Good value
Keith G. on Jun 14, 2022

Pros: great value for $17.99; chunky blade; very comfortable handle; good action (the assist doesn't bother me); flipper tab and thumb studs provide alternative methods of opening; clip is reversible for lefties (though it's tip-up carry only). Cons: flipper tab is a bit too big--; the textured pattern of "k" shapes on the handle extends under the clip, so it doesn't want to let go of your pants pocket. For $17.99, this makes a good starter knife to give someone.

I often shop for budget knives so this popped out when I seen it for just $17. I think it is okay and should get the job done. Not an everyday carry but it has its place. Decided to stick with it over the Assisted as it has both a flipper and thumb stud. The best part though is BladeHQ’s awesome service and fast shipping.

Not my favorite
James D. on Jan 5, 2018

I got this knife for about 10 bucks a few years ago and decided to throw it in my tackle box so I had something cheap I could replace. It’s an okay knife. Too short for my hands but the thick handle feels good. The curved handle also fits well in the palm. If you like big blades then this is a good knife.

Short in the hand
Ken B. on Apr 20, 2017

I like the design of this knife but found it to be too short to fill my hand. I didn't feel like I got a good grip. Also, I'm not a fan of the assisted opening but that's just me.
