KINGMAX Pocket Knife,Multitool Tactical Knife with Blade,Saw, Plier, Screwdriver, Bottle Opener,Folding Knife Built with Full Stainless Steel,Perfect Tool for Men,Camping,Emergency,Outdoor,Daily Use. Review:


 This is a solid, multi-function tool.
I could be lost in the forrest and, with this nice tool, I could cut down trees, build a cabin, cut firewood, build a fire, catch and scale a fish, cut leafy boughs for a soft bed, and survive very nicely. Ok. I’m exaggerating a bit, but it’s very handy.



Kershaw Cinder (1025X) Multifunction Pocket Knife, 1.4-inch High Performance 3Cr13 Steel Blade with Stonewashed Finish, Glass Filled Nylon Handle, Liner Lock, Bottle Opener, Lanyard Hole, 0.9 OZ Review:


I own several Kershaw knives (as well as Zero Tolerance knives - higher end knives made by same company as Kershaw), so I am a fan of Kershaws. Still, I was skeptical that even Kershaw could manufacture a knife so small with the same tight tolerances, blade sharpness and strength and ergonomics as their larger blades. But, I needed a key-ring knife AND when I found this one made by Kershaw for under $10, I figured it was a chance worth taking. When I got this knife and started to use it my skepticism was immediately abandoned. This is definitely a Kai knife (Kershaw's parent company), which means it is high quality all the way. This knife is sharp, locks up tight, is easy to grip and doesn't slip in your hand. It's super small and I don't even notice the extra item on my key-ring. It's great for opening packages, mail, breaking down cardboard, prying batteries out of tight spaces in a variety of devices (surprising how much that happens), even sharpening my carpenter's pencil when I was working out in the garage on a project. This is a high quality, usable "tool", not a novelty toy. Definitely Kershaw quality.



Steinbrucke Tactical Knife Spring Assisted Opening Pocket Knife Folding Stainless Steel 8Cr13Mov 3.4'' Blade, with Reversible Clip - Good for Hunting Camping Survival Outdoor and Everyday Carry Review:


Overall an Amazing knife...

Pro's: Very strong, heavy, and feels like an extension of your hand. Perfect if you have larger hands like I do. The belt clip is strong, the finish is nice, and the hardware used seems very strong.

Con's: I only have 2 complaints! But it is why I didn't award this product with 5 stars and I'll share why. Only the tip (About an inch worth) was sharpened. I had to hone the rest by hand on my stones. This also means that the edge didn't look properly refined from the start, or had a very poor sharpening angle. This could have been done intentionally, but I don't recall reading it anywhere in the description. I will update this review if the seller responds to me. The last complaint I have is about the spring assist. Most of the time when I purchase a knife with a spring assist, I expect it to assist me. Unfortunately, this knife doesn't have much of an assist (If any). Maybe I just got a bad luck when it came to this knife.

Disclaimer: Being ex-military, I probably take my knives more seriously than others. So take this with a grain of salt. It's a very well built knife and I look forward to using this as my daily carry.



MTech USA MT-A845BK Spring Assist Folding Knife Review:


*****UPDATE over a year later: My son wears/uses this knife daily and one of the screws in the clip finally fell out. He couldn't find the screw or a replacement so he emailed them to ask if he could buy one. They responded asking for a pic and when he sent it they told him they were sending a whole new knife! Got it today. What a stand up company! We will continue to buy their products!

My 21-year-old son stole my knife as soon as I got it out of the box. He said it's too manly for a mom to carry around. It IS hefty and beefy - it's a great knife! I wanted it to keep inside my car for emergency needs (it will shatter windows and cut the seatbelt). So since my son took mine, I'll be getting another. It flips open with ease and is a bit weighty, which you want if you need to use it to break a window. I'm going to be using it this summer on every car with a pet or small child locked inside. :)



Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops SWA24S 7.1in S.S. Folding Knife with 3.1in Serrated Clip Point Blade and Aluminum Handle for Outdoor, Tactical, Survival and EDC Review:


Love it, it's sharp, but I like it razor sharp so I put it through my knife sharpener and now this thing is my new favorite knife. I love it because it is light. My other knife was really heavy and didn't like the feeling in my pocket. This is light and well built and you can tell it is durable. Stays closed despite what other people may say. I mean it doesn't click or anything so you know it is all the way in, just kinda hangs there when you close it, but there's no way it's going to open up in your pocket. You actually have to pull the knife out of the holder to get it out. So there is no safety issue. Well worth the money for me.



Snake Eye Tactical Spring Assisted Opening EMT EMS Orange Folding Pocket Knife Review:


Addition: I mentioned before that the blade was hard as hell to get out. I had to put fast hard pressure on the flip lever. Well, after doing that for about forty times, the blade now flips out easily. Therefore I have to five give it five starts
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I liked the looks of it. I'm a old martial artist that still teaches adults and we practice using knives for self-defense. Mostly we use the karambit but this knife could defend a person. I liked the fact that my small fingers fit on every perfectly. I'm 5'2" with small slim hands. The front part of the blade is sharp enough to slice sheet of paper, but rubbing my thumb across it shows that it could be much sharper. After a cople of uses it will get dull. I like the serrations. Most are too thick, where these notches are thin like a razor blades, perfect for cutting a rope. The width of it is perfect for placing my thumb on top, for a good hold. I like the looks of it and it's not that heavy, nor is it feather light. I bought it for the glass breaker tip, I hope it doesn't break off if I ever need it. The strap cutter I would advise testing on a strap. Another buyer of a similar knife said that it wouldn't cut the strap. I like the orange trim, so you could find it in the grass.
The bad things: The son of a guns tighten the blade down so much that I need a crane to pull the blade out. Once I get it out, it's fine. I will try to use wd-40 on it and see if it helps. If not, I still like it. If you have average to big hands, it will be a little knife in your hands, which may not be a bad thing, maybe. The belt clip is perfect. Most of them are tighter than hell, this one though is the perfect amount of tension.
For what you get, it's worth the money. It's adequate for self-defense and for utility use.



MTECH Tactical Stonewashed Dagger Spring Assisted Opening Rescue Pocket Knife Review:


Decided to upgrade my review to 5 stars. Why? Because after spending only about 15 minutes on it while watching TV I was able to get the blade from completely dull to literally shaving sharp. Now I doubt it will hold the edge for long, but any novelty knife this cheap that can be sharpened to shaving sharp deserves it. If only they made a version with a stronger assist spring, larger bump to flip the blade open with, and no silly middle of the blade cutout.

An innovative if silly design. Forget about a blade with a weak spine, this one doesn't have a spine at all!

I admit to buying this knife on a whim, and don't regret the purchase mainly due to the price (under nine dollars currently).

The blade does spring out however it sits at a slight angle within the handle. The belt clip is just black, not snonewashed color which is just silly and finally there is the blade itself.

It almost redefines the meaning of dull. Truly a novelty letter opener if ever there was one. Also obviously, any torque on the blade and I guarantee it will break.

If you're looking for an interesting letter opener/paperweight look no further. If you're looking for a knife, this is not it.
