this is a great buy it was not too expensive, and it works and looks great. if you are considering buying this knife JUST GET.
I've had it about a month, don't know how I ever got along without it. My older hands and stiffness make opening pocket knives a chore, but this Schrade OTF zips out at the touch of the button. Using only one hand, I can unlock, deploy and close easier than any pocket knife I have ever owned. Stays sharp, strong construction, a great pocket clip, black finish is subdued for discreet carry. May get one for an old friend suffering the golden years like me.
This knife is awesome. As the first guy said keep the lock on unless your using it. However, It is lightning fast. Great for self defense.
Great knife... easy one handed operation... this was a replacement for one that was lost.
The knife is excellent, (with one exception) I have poor flex range in my thumbs. But I still think it's an excellent knife. I gave it to my son and he has no problem with it. For myself I ordered another OTF by Schrade, which is easier for me to use, also an excellent knife. I have and will recommend both to others.
