Great Everyday Knife
Have been using this knife as my daily go-to pocket knife for a few weeks now. I did some research before settling on this knife as an everyday replacement for my Spyderco Harpie. The Spyderco is suprb, just needed to retire it as a memorabilia piece since I used it daily in my LE career. The blade is of outstanding quality and comes shaving sharp from the box. The rubber handle provides a firm grip with the plastic spacer making it easy to slip in a pocket with no friction. The opening mechanism is simple and easy making this on par with any switchblade as far as opening and closing. The Bottle-Opener/Lanyard is nice. The opener performs great on bottles with a bit of practice. There is slight play in the blade when opened, tho the play is very minimum and does not detract from the solid feel of the knife. It does not wobble or feel cheap, just enough play to know you have unrestricted friction with no excess play and a fast opening. The knife rides closed in my pocket with no problems. It does not exude itself and I can not tell I am carrying it when sitting down or walking. I am very pleased with this knife (despite it being made in China) and would recommend it to anyone wanting a reliable pocket clip knife. Cool stuff from Buck. I have used their guarantee before and can tell you they WILL stand behind this knife as do I.
