Who among us knife-enthusiasts has not been intrigued or enamored by the auto-knife and the elusive OTF design? Who??? I didn't read every single review for this knife but they all say pretty much the same thing, and I agree. It's a good knife, well worth the money. If you haven't had experience w/otf's buy one of these first b4 you break open that piggy-bank. There's YouTube videos showing these being taken apart and reassembled. I read in one review somewhere a user suggested lithium grease to improve performance and sound of the action. It already works great but the lithium sounds like a good idea and I will try it. Different lubricants have different properties for different applications and lithium sounds like a good choice. The action is really good. Occasional misfires happen, but rarely. I can fire this thing in-and-out 30+ times in a row w/no issues. The handle is rectangular and symmetrical, reminiscent of a small, streamlined standard 'Stanley'-style box cutter. I've accidentally dropped it a couple of times, no worries, put a little small ding in the metal on the corner and took off some paint. Now it has character. The clip is not deep-carry, so the top protrudes but it sits so well, you forget you have it. The handle is a good full-handed size in all dimensions yet it is a pleasure to carry. The blade is thick, sturdy, w/a razor-sharp grind (I've nicked myself 3 times playing with it, we've all been there.) and locks in pretty well. I feel like the materials are inexpensive but they are durable with a good solid design. For the price, these are a definite win.
