I bought this knife off of a friend who was going to return it to the Amazon seller he bought it from but I decided to buy it off of him. His complaint was that the knife was too big for him so I paid him what he paid for it. I have not regretted buying it.

The knife came very sharp and I actually shaved some hair off my arm with it. The lock up was very firm there was no play side to side or up and down. And the knife felt nice in my hand with the exception of the serrations on the handle were not very effective. The knife opens readily and does not shake out. Over all I am very happy with the knife.

This knife is AWESOME!! Fit and finish are outstanding...the linerlock is thick and sturdy, and it locks up nice and early...I describe this knife as a gentleman's folder built like a tactical knife, G10, Elmax, screwed together not riveted, simply an amazing knife...perfect weight as well, not too light, not too heavy...can't say enough nice things about it!

This is a great knife for general cutting tasks but sadly it is a little let down, it is a uk legal EDC knife which is great, it has a very sturdy retention and a moveable thumb stud, the pocket clip can be changed for right or left pocket carry but only tip up, it uses 440c stainless steel for the blade and G10 for the grips which actually don't supply much in terms of grip. Out of the box it was impressively sharpe but not as sharp as the spyderco UKPK or the Squeak. The knife has a pretty nice look but it may not be great for UK EDC as it could seem a little aggressive to most. The retention is really stiff and makes this hard to open with one hand, the knife is easy to sharpen and was up to most cutting tasks. My biggest put down is the lack of a hole for a lanyard and the price, sadly to get a UK legal EDC knife there is usually quite an over price, I personally think even Victorinox is now becomeing too expensive and I buy most knives now used or second hand for that reason.

The Finn Wolf is a pocket knife with one task in mind. Woods use. This is a true scandi grind knife that is tough, ergonomic, and cheap. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a pocket knife to use in the woods.

The TFK is a knife that offers not only quality from TOPS Knives, but a lot of extra features as well. I really believe that that is where you will either love the knife or not. The devil is in the details as they say, and it will depend on if you see value in the extras. Overall it is a high quality knife that can do the bigger tasks well.

I OWN THREE OF THESE, ALL TANTO BLADE MODELS. THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY THE BEST EVERY DAY CARRY KNIVES I HAVE EVER OWNED. I LIVE ON THE GULF COAST, SO A STAINLESS STEEL BLADE IS ALWAYS A GOOD THING. AUS-8 TAKES A GREAT EDGE AND KEEPS IT QUITE WELL. THE LOCK MECHANISM ON SOG'S TWITCH KNIVES IS

I love my ultratech and i bought it to be used and abused. In my profession, i'm cutting, slicing, and chopping with it daily and sharpening it monthly. It has held its edge well for what i put it through. I have the bayonet grind and it allows precision cutting with primary edge while saving the seecondary edge as backup. Ive played with other brand otf's and the ultratechs feel the most solid to me. I like that the thumb button takes a little more pressure to fire, as i have two daughters and i know they wouldnt be able to open it. Best knife ive ever owned and will buy another in the future.

For first-responders, servicemen, tradesmen or outdoorsmen the Leatherman "Crater C33X" is an excellent and inexpensive EDC knife. And, as a bonus, it's proudly American made. The knife is well designed and very rugged, and the size is a perfect balance between not too big and not too small. The knife is set-up for dual carry via either pocket clip or carabiner, both of which are well thought out. Due to the serrations pattern, this knife is relatively easy to resharpen. Leatherman also offers factory engraving of your initials into the blade. A definite bonus for armed services personnel! If you plan on owning only one pocket knife, the "Crater C33X" would be an ideal choice.

It is every hard to find a knife these days that offers the features, design, and quality for under $50. Schrade is doing just that with this design from Brian Griffin. This knife has all the features of a great camp/bushcraft knife. You will love this blade.

The New Cold Steel Master Hunter in CPM-3V steel is awesome. It has a great USA made steel then it is sent to Taiwan to have the handle and sheath made. The handle and sheath are good and well designed. The blade is the perfect size for hunting or camp tasks. I would recommend this blade!
