Cons: Overall Quality
It is what it is ....
This knife is what it is .. an inexpensive knife. Whats cool about it? -As a collector, this is the must-have knife coming out of Portugal. Its good to have knives in your collection from various countries. This knife manufacturer has been around a long time and its a good one for the collection (similar to the French Opinel knives). -Super ridiculously light. 1 oz? Maybe lighter! -Blade shape, grind and angle. Sheepfoot very practical and easy to use. Slight downward angle to the glade from the handle, increasing easy of use. Full Flat Grind. Very strong tip. -the price Whats not cool about it? -loose lockup. The liner lock and whole pivot mechanism seem super simple. There is nothing to tighten. The liner lock works well, it just seems like a child's knife kit or something. I get the impression that if you used this knife extensively, it would loosen, break and you would throw it away and get another due to the cheap price. Well, if that were me, I wouldn't bother and would instead get something more durable that would last longer. -handle is so light it kinda throws off the balance of the blade The lanyard is ok. Final comment: consider why you are buying this knife - do it if you want a complete knife collection with various blades from various countries. If you are looking for a blade to use for some purpose, you should develop a requirements list and budget and shop around. Maybe this is the knife for you but I think you could do better (depending on the budget and requirements). Competitive options would be Opinel, Marbles/RoughRider knives, Swedish Mora, German Eye, Kershaw, Buck, CRKT, etc.
