  1. Lightning OTF - Cutting Edge 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2019

    Not super familiar with these knives, i had one yrs ago (taiwan version) and i have one of the newer dagger blade one (taiwan version).
    Now these tanto bladed ones. I bought 5 different ones here. I like them that much. First of all, they are an upgraded version. Much havier than previous model, also the infamous stamp on the right side of handle is gone. Compared to my dagger blade one, seems like the body material is heavier, the springs inside are stainless vs coated and the firing button is a little different (i actualy tried swapping firing buttons from one to the other and it doesn't work. The blade has a removable guide pin now also. The tanto blade, i heard that lightning has done before in a limited production, but i can't say for sure myself. All these blades have the lightning stamp, which tells me they're factory made. The fininsh of the blade is borderline perfect. Not high polish, but very nice even finish and grinds. The coating on handles, i believe are done by cutring edge (never seen these finishes on other lightnings). Not sure what process they use,but i tried scratching the inside of one with a key and it seems to be an ok finish. They sure look nice. I bought a black, a snake skin, a tree camo and two digi camo. All very nice. The pocket clips while original, are laser etched "cutting edge" and seem to have a higher polish than my dagger blade one. Screws are all torx here vs hex. The "twang" in the firing of blade is still there, but a lot more muffled than before. Heavier handle and blade will do that. Open up the knife, put a llight coat of oil on all moving parts and the "twang" will go away completely. When you close it back up, put blue threadlock on all your screws and you have a preety nice reliable otf.
    I like these a lot. How these are not more than 35 bucks (same price as older regular version) beats me. But worth every penny imo. I rarely do reviews, but i'm very pleased here. Both product and service.

  2. lightning otf my EDC 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2019

    Over the years I have purchased the lightning otf several times, different blade style and color. This one seem heavier then the others, also felt sturdier not alot of play on the blade. Only problem was this one broke after the first week, I think it was my fault, so I ordered 2 more.

  3. 1st one was defective but..... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2018

    1st off Perry Knife Works 10 stars for customer service. 4 stars for knife b/c 1st one I received was defective. Customer service sent me a new one w/ a paid return envelope for the defective one. Knife is nice. Feels heavy in the hand. Would be 5 star if 1st knife wasn't defective. Although I rather my Camo Titan with non seratted tanto.
    Still a really nice piece.

  4. well spent coin! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2018

    The lightning appears to be well constructed and has a nice weight to it, also its extremely sharp. I noticed all of the screws were not very tight. So I removed them all and used blue thread lock and problem solved. NOTE: sometimes the blade fails to deploy when laying on a flat surface for a while. That is definitely not a deal breaker for me.
    I chose the tonto 2/3 separated blade and really like it.
    If you are on the fence about it like I was at first all of that will change as soon as you hold one in your hand and deploy retract that blade.

  5. I likey new blade! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    See my previous review for the regular lightning. the Tanto blade is a little hard to get used to, but once you do it's Unique in its ability to do different things. I highly recommend a Tanto blade Lightning, and especially perry knives!

  6. Not practical, but cool! 5 Star Review

    Surprisingly very good quality. Functions well and feels good in your hand. Great buy for the price. Would defiantly buy another just for the cool factor.
