I bought three of these from Woot recently - one for me, one for a gift, and one spare. When the shipping is five bucks flat, I often go ahead and get three units.
I appreciate good tools, but I am not a knife collector. I buy things that I can use - practical and useful. This knife has a nice, sharp chrome-moly-vanadium blade with a light bead-blast finish. The G-10 (plastic) handle feels great. It feels a bit large in a pocket if you are not used to it, but it works. The flip open action is very smooth, even before break-in. You can use the thumb stud to tilt the blade out and then snap it to the full open and locked position with a flick of the wrist. Closure requires two hands, using the thumb to push the lock to the side so that you can begin to fold the blade.
It is made in China, as marked on the blade.
I really like this knife a lot. At $20 it blows away anything that you might see elsewhere at the same price. If you need an inexpensive and reasonably substantial folding knife for general use, this is the knife for you.
Picked up a few. They seem to pop up here on a regular basis.
I own a few pocket knives. This one is my goto. Feels right in the hand.
Agree that it is a bit big for the pocket, but agree also that you get used to it.
Edge didn’t last too long, but then polished on a fresh one, and it has been able to shave hair for a while now.
Quality is more than acceptable.
