Solid knife, a bit hard to open


From Paul


This is a very solid knife. Nicely constructed, well balanced, good strong blade and it feels good in my hand. My only complaint is that it is a little hard to open, spring assist and all. Otherwise it is a great choice for an everyday working knife.

Great knife for the price


From Paul


This is one tough knife. Good balance, solid blade, keeps a good edge but can be a bit hard to open at times. You have to practice your technique to get the spring assist to work for you. The knife is hefty but not burdensome and it feels very solid in your hand. I love it.
