Best bang for the buck!
I’ve had and carried the knife for a number of weeks. For $33 you can’t do better. It’s small, yet comfortably fits in your hand with a three finger grip. The fourth finger is slightly in back. There are no hot spots on the knife. Although it’s cheaper steel, it’s remained sharp for everyday, mundane cutting activities. The blade is well centered and needs a bit of breaking in but not much. The knife looks great in basic black. The blade shape is ergonomicly designed allowing for easy cutting at most angles. No side to side blade play or other loose parts. No brainer at this price.

Great Every Day Carry Knife
There is is great feel and finish to this knife. I got it at a great sale price and carry it every day to work. I take the clip off because I don't use it.
