This knife is not only very attractive it is also very functional. It is a great knife for every day carry. This knife is light the blade is just the right size for every day tasks. The only thing I wish they had included a nail pull on the blade as the thunder stud is a little hard to manipulate if you have large hands. I like this knife very much.
When this knife arrived it had a nice overall look of quality, especially for the price. As I like to just drop my folders in my pocket I like the bolsters to have smooth, rounded corners that are easy on pocket material. I also have no need for the spring clip. After removing the clip with a torx driver I rounded and softened the corners with a file and polished the bolsters smooth with #600 wet/dry sandpaper. Now, I have an old-style pocket knife with just the right heft! One reviewer complained that his knife was hard to open. With the application of a little oil and use these knives will loosen up. The stud on the blade is fine (and legal) in my home state, but as I travel interstate quite a bit I would have preferred a nail groove instead. With that change and the modifications I've made, this knife would be perfect. At this price I have little to complain about.
Schrade Old Timer Pioneer Lockblade 4.1" Closed
May 24, 2018
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
It is impossible to open. It hurts when trying to opening it with one hand and it's even impossible to do. You have to use both hands and it's still so hard to open, the backspring is just too stiff and the metal of the blade part doesn't slide on it, it feels like it's rusty. I read that for some people it was hard to open but i thought they just didn't had luck and got a stiff one, but at this point it's just not correct. The delivery was fast (Switzerland) and of quality, as always on this website.
