Whether on your person or close at hand, the hard-wearing pocket clip and lanyard hole provide multiple carrying options when needed. A durable titanium nitride coated blade keeps your knife in working form for generations to come, ensuring that you will quit long before your knife does.
Really wanted this to be my new EDC as the screws on the clip of my mini covert stripped out. However when receiving the knife I instantly noticed how hard it was to open. Hard to open with two hands even, impossible with one. I thought it needed a break in period or something, however i noticed some other users elsewhere reporting the same issue. One user said he had to grind down a part for it to open properly. I shouldn't have to do this for the product to work properly. Other users are saying theirs opens just fine so this is obviously a quality control issue.
I really like the knife, it was a little hard to open at first , the thumb studs hurt my fingers after awhile but after I got used to how to open it properly, now it opens every time painlessly, great knife.
Knife is snappy. Opens well. Blade isn't quite centered towards the tip when closed. Very, very slight amount of blade play (less than 1/1000th/in) when open. Safety feels solid. Came fairly sharp out of the package.
