Customer Reviews

It's an excellent EDC
William F. on Mar 27, 2020

The blade is durable and attractive, I have used it many times as a utility knife on plumbing jobs and the serrated edge comes in handy. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 5 star review is the handle and the lack of a flipper. If it had a handle similar to the blur or clash I would like it a lot better.
