This is a very cool looking knife. It has a uniquely shaped blade and arrived in the packaging razor sharp. The best part is the price. It is a steal for under $30. The coolest part is that it comes with an hex tool to tighten the screws if they get loose. That shows that 5.11 is thinking and is going the extra mile to make a product works for the end user. I have 3 other 5.11 knives and love rotating them into my EDC.

Cool Little Knife

From tequilahunken

from harnosand sweden

just love it. its like a machine, very precise and no movement in the blade. very easy to use. can be opened by just a short shake by the hand. one hand opened and closed aswell by one hand. i wear it for selfdefence and for everyday cutting task. i feel naked without it. my wife got one aswell in her bag. whatever i need to do i can always rely on this pal. cutting the seatbelt in an accident, defend my family against a vicious dog or just peel a fruit... and it ridiculus easy to sharpen.

AWESOME!!!

I bought this knife as a birthday gift for my fiance who is a fireman. He absolutely LOVES this knife. It's lightweight, easy to use, great grip, and he can attach it to his pocket, belt, etc. As a gift buyer, I did great!

Light tactical folder for everyday use

Nice, affordable tactical folder. Easy to use and adjust with included allen wrench. Not as rugged as more expensive folders, but should hold up regualr, non-extreme use.

Great knife, however....

From Jim

from Columbus, Oh

It's a great knife, I use it everyday and love it. However, the screws used to hold the knife together, specifically, the pocket/belt clip, come loose every couple of days and I can't seem to find the correct size allen wrench for it, every thing is either to big or to small. Either way, I shouldn't have to tighten these screws at all. This is the first 5.11 knife I've owned, hope it's just my knife.

great knife
