Very good "sleeper" framelock
I recently bought this from a brick & mortar sporting goods store in my area. I feel this knife deserves at least one review, & a pretty good one at that! This is a knife you'd scroll right past online, never knowing you missed a very decent blade.I'll start by saying that I've been collecting factory & custom knives for 25+ years. My average knife purchase is probably in the $90-$150 usd range. As far as US companies manufacturing in China, I have long felt that Kershaw is king. Their US output is wonderful, & their foreign stuff is great for the money. This Outdoor Edge folder is very much in the foreign-made Kershaw price range, as well as some of its features. I won't make direct comparison, save to say, for this price, you could purchase a very good Chinese made knife from Kershaw (or several other reputable companies).I have had good experiences with a handful of other inexpensive Outdoor Edge knives, so I wasn't too hesitant to pick the Divide up on a recent payday. I had noticed it first, here on knifecenter, & thought it was great that O.E. was doing a ball bearing framelock.Mine came clam-packed, found on a rack at the store, so I couldn't check it out before purchase. I opened it up, a tad nervous that it wouldn't meet my expectations.This knife is definitely on par with many others that I judge to be the "very good" end of the industry standard (the Chinese Kershaw).This is one of the smoothest opening blades I've ever seen in this budget $ range.it feels light in the hand & pocket, yet capable & solid. Frame lock lockup is rock solid, & the ti-ni type coating on the lockbar side looks good & feels good. Pocket clip is unobtrusive & fairly generic, but does the job well. It's discreet enough, yet leaves enough of the butt end exposed to get a good grip when drawing it. The flipper tang is well positioned & nicely jimped. I like the red G10 slab with the black top. The lockbar's bearing/detent keeps the knife closed & feels solid upon closing.The sort of upswept drop point is a nice shape, both for daily utility, & last ditch emergency use. Some might gripe about the 8cr13mov steel. It's still a competent steel in this price range, & similar, if not identical to what you'll see on 9/10 knives in this price range.O.E. did a great job on the bearing pivot/flipper combo, but the dual thumbstuds are comfortable & effective too.There's surprisingly a lot to like about this quiet little release from Outdoor Edge....oh, & there's a nice big lanyard hole that should fit standard paracord if you want to make this knife feel a bit more customized to your aesthetic.
