You get what you pay for
I wanted a large blade quality folding knife. The price was suspicious but the Smith and Wesson name usually means quality. I was hoping it was a deeply discounted overstock item. I bought the product for an every day pocket piece for farm chores. The materials were okay but the craftsmanship poor. The lockup on the bladed was quite loose. I have since spent twice the purchase price on a replacement that is 4 times the quality. It will serve out its days in the barn, used to cut twine on hay bales. It is true what they say, you get what you pay for.

No way Jose.....Disappointed
Knife looked cool - 4 inch blade and all, plus a rescue cutter in the handle....and frankly for the price, I gambled that this was a hidden gem. In reality, it wasn't a gem, rather another piece of petrified dung from China. First of, the only thing right was the knife sharpness. Deployment not smooth at all, then my knife was misaligned so part of the blade hit the inner liner upon closing. The star screws/bolts looked like they were over tightened, so they looked stripped. Then there was that embedded rescue cutter - piece O' S***. It wouldn't even cut paper. I even tried it on a piece of leftover car belt - didn't cut jack. So for 20 bucks, save your money and invest it in another knife. Can't believe Smith&Wesson licensed their name to the manufacturer of this knife..... -M

One Kick A** Blade. I was expecting a knife with some size to it, something that felt like you were holding a true tool, (not a kids toy) and the weight came in perfect. The blade itself came in sharp unlike most comments I've previously read. All in all I was overly impressed with Smith&Wesson. They came and delivered with this bad boy. Quick thanks to knifecenter! This is an unbeatable price for a new best friend
