Good Knife

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Wied


I like this knife because the blade is heavy enough to open with a flick of the wrist, no thumb. It has a nice smooth action. I like the moveable clip. But I lost 1 screw, I have to use Loctite on the screws. I'm getting a 2nd one for my left hand. Thank You

Incredible EDC Blade

 Rated 5.0 stars

From HawaiiZach

from Kentucky

I have owned this knife for about 8 months now. It holds up great with day to day use. I am a college student and cannot conceal carry, so I carry this with me. Its small enough that it isnt a burden and large enough for anything I need. The black color has stayed true and the blade is made of great AUS 8 steel. I LOVE this knife. Thank you 5.11!!!!
