Featured in

Narrow tip perfect for piercing, durable, beautifully easy to open, lightweight, smooth handle, incredibly sharp, slim profile, versatile, good size (4 inches closed, 3 inch blade), pocket clip reversible, and great for detailed work.

The profile is too slim for people with big hands; and the safety lock is fragile.


Performance: If you're looking for a knife that can do just about anything and everything, this is the bad boy for you. The modified drop-point blade is perfect for slicing, yet its thin tip can pierce or puncture anything and is excellent for detailed work.

The knife is built from 410 stainless steel, with a bead-blasted finish that keeps the metal handle (no grip) and knife blade from rusting. It's slim, lightweight, and slips into your pocket easily—you'll forget it's there! The 3-inch blade is long enough for your tasks around the house/campsite, but short enough to be legal. The slim grip may be a bit small for bigger hands, but the blade itself is just what you need for a reliable knife to carry at all times.

Features: The SpeedSafe assisted opening system allows you to flip the knife blade open with your thumb or finger, and it's a one-handed design ideal for both left- and right-handed users. The knife comes with a safety lock that prevents it from slipping open in your pocket or snapping closed when cutting. Be warned: dropping the knife could snap the safety lock.

The pocketclip is designed to be unscrewed and rotated (tip up or tip down). This feature makes it easy for you to carry it in either pocket for quick accessibility according to which hand is dominant.

Price: At $40, this is a slightly pricey knife. However, you get reliability and quality for the higher price. If you're a regular knife user, this is the blade you want!
