Cons: None

So much fun to mess around with!

This is the coolest little gadget. It fits on my keychain perfectly and I use it mostly for flipping while sitting in traffic. Though it's small, it flips just like a full-sized bali. Sharpening it is a little tough to do though, mostly because of the shape of the blade.

nice keychain knife

great little keychain knife. The size of the blade is bigger than most keychain knives and it locks onto your keyring securely, leaving the bottle opener available for use. The blade was not as sharp as I would have expected from a new knife but I was able to sharpen it without difficulty. So far it seems to be holding an edge.

Good knife, but has problems

This knife get used for light duty at work and for everyday uses like opening envelopes or boxes. I really just wanted something different while still being useful and this does a pretty good job. I really like the way it looks and it's small so I am able to carry it in my pocket easily. When I got my knife after only using it for a few days I noticed one of the handles was extremely loose, the next day I flipped my knife out of my pocket and the screw holding it in fell off. I looked around online and found out that this is a common problem with this knife, at this point I had noticed that almost all of the screws were VERY loose. So instead of dealing with returning it, I just got out some threadlocker and fixed the problem myself. Since then it's been a very good knife.

Fun knife/bottle opener

This is a fun knife. Too small to do any butterfly moves. A little over priced for what you get in my opinion. However, it is unique and a bought a few to give away because they are unique.
