My first mini got lost and I picked up another one. I love these for daily carry and general field use. They are small and don't take up a lot of space.
I carried this knife for 3 to 4 years and it never had any blade play thats what the screw where it pivots is used for to tighten it up and i also never had any problems sharpening it if you use proper technique you wont have problems and I also only paid 35 dollars for mine 25 dollars cheaper than another reviewer it opens very fast if you do it right and i also had no problems with it getting stuck open just use your knife properly and you will have no problems use your warranty if you do and youll be happy
I have owned two of these knives, and I have not been disappointed. The size and shape are very well designed, and I have not had a problem with the locking mechanism. I have also had no trouble with excessive play. This is a fine general purpose pocket knife and well worth the money I paid for it.
One of the worst knives I've ever owned. Feels cheap, lots of blade play.
I've owned two of these, sadly I lost them both...
while I had them I used them to cut aluminum seals off tractor trailers... never failed to impress me with how sharp and robust these small knives were... the life time warranty doesn't cover loss does it?
I bought this knife with intentions of carrying it and for daily use. Its nice looking and well balanced. For overall apearrance i rate it high. Once i got to using it is when things all went bad. Ive never had a lock liner fail on a knife. This thing gets stuck open religously. The lock travels too far. Its also very difficult to sharpen. This one will be getting tossed in the junk drawer for sure. I call it my 60 dollar mistake. Ive seen better quality out of a 5 dollar flea market knife. Save your money.
This knife has a nice smooth action and a nice tough handle, but the steel is too hard for practical use. it is a nightmare to sharpen. Once its dull its dull. it will tear up a regular stone and it takes forever on a diamond sharpener. I think that they should get a better quality steel, perhaps 13c26 sandavik steel.
