I bought this knife about two years ago and carried it with me for most of that time. I've used it on a daily base in my work as a utility knife, including a lot of box-cutting. It is heavy for a folding knife, perhaps not really a 'pocket-knife', but it gives me more control than a smaller knife would. The edge stays very sharp and is easy to sharpen ( remember, I do a lot of boxcutting!). After two years of heavy duty use some minor flaws appear: The black finish on the blade is almost gone, and the little torque-screws used to keep the gripplates on are loosening. Altough I lost a few, this doesn't seem to affect the knife at all. Also recently the knife for the first time in two years seemed to fail locking properly, altough it might have been dirty. All and all this knife was a very good buy, and the minor flaws are, to my opinion, a result of two years heavy duty wear and tear, and I think I will replace it eventually by buying a new one!

I came across my review from years ago, and saw the reply. I can say the problem with the lock was problably caused by dirt in the locking system, so it didn't lock when I opended it. It wasn't caused by usage. I'm sure because I still use the knive, and without any more locking problems. And after over 4 years of hard use (or better: abuse) literally all the little torque screws are now gone (not the large one that holds the blade, of course), but the handles miraculously still don't come off!I really would like to buy a shiny new one, but why if the old one is still going strong?

It's hard to discern from your review whether you mean that the knife didn't open enough to engage the lock when it "failed locking properly" as a result of user error or whether you had it open and locked and the lock itself actually failed during use.If it was a lock failure, it is a safety concern, and something that should be considered to be a major flaw. If the lock failed when engaged, I suggest discontinuing use of the knife.

I bought the mule folder in desert tan to complement my desert tan partially serrated Ka Bar fixed blade. The knife is solid as a rock. It embodies every facet of the Ka Bar brand. It is a plain edge with an awesome sheath. It locks up like a charm with no hint of mechanical failure. Will buy another in the future in a different color to complement my other Ka Bars.
