Lansky Mikkel Willumsen Responder Folding 3.5" 9Cr18MoV Plain Blade, Zytel Handles - LKN111
LSLKN111: Responder Urban Tactical EDC Knife
Lansky Knives and Sharpeners
The KnifeCenter knows Mikkel Willumsen and we have admired and sold his custom and semi-custom knives for some time. He teamed with Lansky to release these economically priced folders. We feel that this knife may be underpriced, however. People see the low price tag and think it has a low real value. Well, we beg to differ. These folders are really nice. They feel like products that sell for three times their price. In fact, the design of the knives is so awesome , it is much like his custom models. They fit great in the hand with your natural grip leaving your thumb right on top of the blade back, giving a really good working position. The belly (curved cutting edge) of the blade is then positioned perfectly to do serious work.These are full size pocket knives.
Materials seem really nice as well with G10 handles that are perfectly machined giving a solid gripping surface without being too much like sand paper. The pocket clip can be positioned for tip-down carry if desired. The blade is 9Cr18MoV which is a good material for most uses, although not a premium steel. But - have you seen the price of this knife? These knives are really a chance for economy buyers to use a very highly designed, modern folding pocketknife.
The Responder Quick Action Knife is an EDC (Every Day Carry) sized version of the Responder X9. Ballistic glass filled nylon scales are easy on the pockets, while the thumb hole and flipper allow for lightning quick deployment. Knife features a stout liner lock mechanism, nice flipping action, and very ergonomic shape. A little bit thick in the hand but that also gives you a stout feeling when using the design. The belly is positioned exactly where you need it for extreme cutting tasks, this is one amazing design at an incredible price.
