Great knife

This thing is sick. Smooth action little weight yet sturdy. The blade itself is sharp but just 5 min on a stone and I can shave

Bought 2, both jammed on me

2 years ago

I purchased this knife to replace my old OTF knife that has served me well for the past 5 years and when I first got it I was very happy with the knife overall, within a week my 1st knife jammed and the blade would not come out no mater what. BHQ was super nice and they refunded me for it within a few hours of contacting them. I ordered the 2nd same model and even though it worked read more for about 3 weeks longer than the 1st now it too has jammed and no matter what I do the blade will not come out.

BHQ let me keep and dispose of the original knife so I decided to open it up to see what was going on, inside there is a small plastic part that engages/disengages the safety when you move the outside switch. That part had chipped on the 1st knife and was no longer high enough for the outside switch to actually move it back and forth. Why they chose to use plastic for a part that is crucial in a knife that by definition moves the insides every time you need to use it I am not sure, metal of any type would have been a better choice. Also I get that the space is limited inside by a safety switch that is about 1mm thick inside a moving mechanism was also not a great choice.

In closing I really liked the knife, outside build was good, weight was good, blade was extra sharp and it looked great but in the end if the blade jams inside I don't really have a knife hence the 1 star rating. Nothing else really matters when the thing is unusable, makes a great paperweight but not a great knife.

Good blade, good action

Good knife, it's my first otf knife so it surprised me a little. I must say for a knife that cost $40 it's pretty solid. I've been playing with it a lot and it didn't let me down yet. Scary though it makes me want to buy a high end otf haha.

If you're think about buying one I would go for it, it's pretty good.

I dont know if it was just defective

I received mine and i was excited to have one. The problem I had was that when i engaged the blade, I could easily push the blade back in with my fingers. It wouldnt lock up enough to be useable for anything other than extremely light use. It wouldnt even work for a defensive situation because they blade would retract with any amount of pressure applied. Blade HQ Was nice enough read more to Refund it, Im going to pay the difference for a more reliable knife from a bigger brand name.

Good entry level OTF.

At this price you can't go wrong. If you've never had an OTF knife, I highly recommend this one. It's a single action knife- which I've never been a big fan of- but it offers super quick deployment, a good lock up and excellent durability with its aluminum housing. I love mine!

It's a otf that's legal

I live in North Carolina and we have a law which is crazy that you can own auto otf knives but you can't carry them unless opened not being aware of this I carried my infidel for like a week. Until I looked at what the laws where here so this is the next best thing. Being completely honest in a way it's better if you actually planned on using your knife that way you won't be scared read more using your expensive infidel.

Great OTF For The Money!

I have to agree with Matthew. This is a great knife for what you pay. Solid with no blade wobble. Very well made and I am so happy with it. If you long for a Microtech but cannot afford one get one of these, I am sure you will like it. As always, great service from the BHQ folks. Super fast shipping. All of my autos came from BHQ, I see no reason to shop elsewhere.Great to do business read more with someone who cares about their customers.

Happy man!

Shipping was faster than promised and I'm one happy man. 10 out of 5 stars, will be my only source for cutting tools, carry defense and work alike. Good job guys!! Proud to be a returning customer!
