Solid Knife
Michael S.
I have a rotation of knives I carry in this size range and this one is perhaps my favorite. The blade is sharp and stays sharp even when used regularly for cutting cardboard, rubber, strapping tape, etc. I just touch it up with ceramics and it is right back to work. The lockup instills confidence and it is smooth as silk to open. I have nothing bad to say about this knife.
Simplistically Classy
Mitchell H.
Although the darkened blade would be better, I added this model to my collection of folding "tacticals" and I think it is a well made simple knife. Ergonomics are great for me and I have XLRG mits, construction is top-notch with no machine marks, overruns or bad margins, quality materials used, and sharp right out of the box. I like the Viper line and have several other of their knives. For what you get, the price is right. This one is currently in my EDC rotation and it does what I need it to do in both work and defensive realms.
