BUCK LITE
The size, weight & ballance, make this ergonomic package perfect. My buck Lite from the 1980s is wearing thin from use ! this is a perfect replacement. Well made for a fair price ! I will find a clip to add to the sheath !

12 POINT HUNTER
I LIKE THE SIZE OF THE BLADE ,AND THE FACT IT HAS 420 STEEL . IT FEELS GOOD IN THE HAND. THE HANDLE SEEMS A LITTLE CHEAP BUT OVERALL A VERY NICE FOLDING KNIFE. I WILL CARRY THIS KNIFE IN MY POCKET. I LIKE THE 10 POINT OMNI HUNTER ALSO, HOWEVER THE BLADE IS A LITTLE SMALL FOR MY LIKING BUT STILL A GREAT INVESTMENT.

Good all-rounder
Nice knife with a large feel when you hold it unfolded. The handle is very light and the blade quite large, so balance is a bit front-heavy, but not too bad. The locker mechanism smacks the blade into place with a tight, satisfying snap and holds the blade absolutely steady. 420HC steel is my favorite blade material. Easy to sharpen, holds the edge and will outlast most other steels when rust is an issue. E.g. you can take this knife with you on the salty ocean, and as long as you look a bit after it, there is no way you will loose it to rust. This knife is great value, especially so when harsh environments gnaw away at your steel. Definitely recommended!

It's OK
Overall not a bad knife, pouch is handy, blade is sharp, but it looks and feels cheap, I own Chinese made/bought knives that are better made and finished for half the price. Would I inform some one to buy one? no get a cheap China made instead, it just feels so cheap with all that plastic.
