Customer Reviews

Decent knife, not sure I'd order it again.
Max I. on Dec 31, 2018

Received this knife today, I ordered it for $17.95 and I'm a little disappointed. The handle arrived covered in little scratches and fingerprints before I had even touched it. Blade opening is really stiff, I need two hands though that's pretty standard for friction folders I'd imagine. Handle feels really cheap and is made out of pretty thin steel. However, for less than $20 all of this is pretty easily overlooked, except for the fingerprints and scratches, not sure what's up with that. Though while writing this review and looking over the knife I am noticing a number of dents and chips in the handle I didn't see at first, if I didn't know any better I'd say this had been carried in someone's pocket for a few months, maybe even dropped a few times. I didn't expect to receive a used product but I'm sure I did, and if I haven't, this is a surprisingly low standard for quality.
