Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
Seems like a pretty solid value
Who knows how the steel will hold up on this inexpensive knife, but mine arrived shaving-sharp out of the box. The beechwood handle feels really nice, is attractive and makes the thing incredibly lightweight, and the leather thong is very handy for retrieving it from a pocket. A two-hand opener - even a NYPD officer with an attitude would have difficulty opening this with centrifugal force. Metalwork seems solid - way more quality than I'd expect for the price. I like how the "liner" lock (even though the knife has no liners, that's how the lock works) is lefty-friendly, operating from the opposite direction one usually sees. It was noted that shipping would take a few days, but it got here fast as lightning. Honestly, I bought the thing because the brand intrigued me: I read a review comparing it to Opinel, which I consider to be one of the screaming values (the carbone series) in the knife world. I'd not heard of MAM Filmam before Knife Center's email the other day, and I'm glad I took a chance - I can see buying more of these in the future. I'm glad I took a chance on it - and I'm grateful to Knife Center for always stretching out and offering us stuff that's different.

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.
