Fantastic Budget Karambit
Everything about this knife is very tight, but not so tight that it causes problems. Especially at first, the blade was a little difficult to open. But it loosened up quickly. It is still tight, but I am used to it now. I just use my thumb to open it part way, and then flick my wrist to open it the rest of the way (Wmpyr teaches that on YouTube, and I do it with all knives). Even the pocket clip is long, secure, and very hard to bend out of shape. In my opinion, that is one of the knife's greatest selling points. Of all the knives I have owned, this knife has the best pocket clip of them all. It also has one of the most ergonomic (in my opinion) handles of them all. It is comfortable in forward or reverse grip whether you use the finger ring or not. The knife comes sharp enough out of the box, but because it is a karambit it can be interesting to resharpen. You can use a sharpening rod from Knife Center ($2), or the corner of a stone. But if you use the large surface of a regular stone, a significant portion of the edge will not get sharpened. Also, the tip of the blade has a tendency to push against the frame. I do not think that is a problem, but it is something to keep in mind. Overall, this is a great knife, for a fantastic price, that I highly recommend. It is probably one of the best knives for the price range. You just have to take a half hour to break it in.
