This knife is a bargain for this price! Where else can you find a flipper tab, an "axis" lock, and thumb stud opening options?! This is the highest recommended budget knife in my collection for sure.
I got this because I didn't have a crossbar locking knife, and wanted one to see how I feel about it. This knife didn't disappoint, and has quickly become my EDC, well... one of them. I wish it had a plain clip and a lanyard hole, but otherwise it seems like a solid knife for the money.
At first, the action is extremely stiff, stick with it though!! After a few days of playing with the knife, the action became butter smooth and is now extremely fun to fidget with. They have since updated the terrible pocket clip everyone was bashing on, the new one is much better for deep carry IMO. Gotta go with the crimson version!
I picked this knife up for Christmas and have carried it regularly in the 2 months since. The D2 blade came sharp out of the box and was perfectly centered. Initially, I found it a little difficult to open with the thumb studs, but pulling back the XR lock and swinging it open was smooth and easy. After a little break-in period, the thumb studs and flipper both work beautifully. It's a little heavy for its size, but I think that helps make it feel solid in hand. Overall this is a great pickup and for $50 it's a no-brainer!
This is a great bang for your buck knife! Good materials and great action for the price! When you first get it it'll probably be kinda stiff and like to chew up your fingers, but once you work it in it's just fine! One key tip do not take it all apart down to the axis mechanism unless you are a professional😂 But overall it's great!!
I like this knife a lot. The only complaint is that the flipper action sticks sometimes and doesn't open all the way. Maybe just user error, maybe it needs some lube on the washers, anyways, great knife for the price.
This knife has a D2 knife material and G-10 handles, a combination very difficult to find at such a low price! Cons: -The G-10 scales, while are really sleek and nice, are a bit slicker than expected and don't offer a substantial amount of grip -The locking mechanism has a very tight spring (out of the box) and acts as a brake towards the opening and closing of the knife, essentially making it harder to deploy with flipper and thumb studs. The initial way around this is to deploy with the the lock disengaged instead off using flipper/studs. Just beware of a possible bounce back situation. -Pocket Clip makes for difficult removal at times Pros: -Obviously the D2 blade, which came very sharp out of the box. -The recessed pocket clip is strong and offers very deep carry. -Blade and flipper gimping is very well done and offers great grip that, I feel, balances the slick handles. -Locking style offers great one handed open/close use which is awesome! Overall this is a quality knife. You are definitely getting more than you paid for!
Knife is great, no sticking, fun to fidget with and the edge holds up great to everyday tasks. The pocket clip is less than stellar though. It ended up breaking off right where the “G” meets the sides of the bar. SOG has a replacement pickup program but YMMV as I have not heard back from them
its a fun knife to fidget with, it has three ways to open. the red color isnt too bright which is a good thing.
