These are among the best and coolest knives I have ever purchased! They come really sharp straight from the package. They feel amazing in in my hands. As for the smaller one, I put it in my survival kit (that I bought from budk, also awesome) and carry the larger knife everywhere I go. I have bought much more expensive knives from bud k and let me tell you, these ones work just as well! I put them through the same tests I always put the more expensive ones through and they held up just fine.
Its amazing!!!! Great price and the great knife...the assisted opening is super quick and the weight is heavy which i like...wouldnt have chosen any other knife
I purchased a pair of these knives and 2 Smith & Wesson knives. The Patriot is by far my favorite knife. I love the way you hardly have to push the blade forward and it opens so fast with very little effort. The blade sharpens very well and keeps it's edge.
Just got my knife in only took 5 days to get. It exceeded my expectations on every level. It came razor sharp and would recommend to anyone. Also can't wait to get a second one.
Over the years I have made it a policy to carry knives that I give to first responders, friends etc. This knife has been met with rave reviews from everyone who has gotten one. Best bang for the buck I have seen in a long time. Liked them so well I ordered over 100 of them.
