Best Bargain on theWeb
While I'm not a knife geek like so many on this sight—whose expertise, BTW, has been extremely helpful to me in determining purchases—I do love my blades, and have purchased several in the past year for different functions. Even though I had just purchased a robust Spyderco folder, given my supreme satisfaction with the Cold Steel Trail Master I could not pass up the great deal on this Pocket Bushman. I checked it out pretty thoroughly online before purchasing, but, really, at this price it was a no-brainer out of the gate. Admittedly, the open/close mechanism is awkward, but this is an awesome knife. Even sharper than the Trail Master out of the box (which is saying something), this is definitely a "handle with care" knife. But what a beast! I put it through what I consider to be hard use, clearing out hunting areas, whatever comes along, including harvesting fat wood. I have zero doubt this knife will do whatever I ask of it for years to come, and I intend to purchase another for my truck, and likely one for a BOB I'm putting together. Love the slim profile and fat blade. IF it weren't for the price I would knock it down a notch for the open/close mechanism, but it's such a steal, that's like somebody giving you a Cadillac and b****ing about the color. Also, ignore the YouTube guy who breaks this knife, no normal person would use the knife in the way he did. Dude, you DID bend it, you DID misuse it. Annoying. Anyway, buy this knife, it's the best bargain I've seen anywhere for a long time.
