Customer Reviews

It's exactly what they meant it to be.
Brendan V. on Feb 18, 2022

First off, I absolutely meant the 5 stars I am giving. I love this knife dearly, and I encourage you to read this full review before deciding. That being said, it is very impractical. The thumb stud and flipper on this mechanism take some getting used to, so you will mostly two hand open this knife. It takes up a decent chunk of your pocket, and some features of the frame make it difficult to get into and out of your pocket. Due to the nature of the ET mechanism, I managed to accidentally cut myself twice only 13 hours after receiving this knife. Even with all of that, just holding the knife puts a smile on my face. The locking mechanism is surprisingly sturdy, so you don't have to worry about accidentally closing it on your fingers without triggering the mechanism. I could fidget with this knife all day long, just watching it open and close. It is made extremely well, with high quality materials and expert machining that looks and feels great. Hair popping sharp right out of the box, and built to be used and abused. Overall, I strongly recommend this knife, even if you just want it for the novelty, or as a conversation starter.
