Review of: Schrade Viper OTF Assisted Opening Pocket Knife Dagger
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.

Review of: Schrade OTF Assisted Opening Viper Pocket Knife Satin Serrated
- Dave Lander
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.
