Nice Lightwieght Knife

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Nick

from Wisconsin

The knife is very light and easy to deploy. The clip can be moved for right or left handed people or putting in any pocket.

Very nice blade

 Rated 4.0 stars

From HotShot

from New Jersey

Very nice knife. The blade is great, practical and sexy. My only complaint is that it would've have been better if it was assisted opening and the thumb lugs were farther back on the blade. That would've made it easier to deploy the blade. Other than that, its perfect!!!

Highly versatile.

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Amianthus

from Lindstrom, MN

This knife is a fantastic addition to any duty belt!
Low profile. Easy to deploy (just a flip of the wrist). Secure when locked. Comfortable grip. Tanto edge is very useful for puncturing and cutting. And as a weapon, if need be. Although I have no direct experience with that usage. Serrated edge is a plus when cutting as well.
All in all, a fantastic tool for use in many, MANY applications.
