      Comments about Duluth Trading General Powell's Pocketknife:

      I really like the small size of this knife. It fits perfect in the coin pocket of my Fire Hose work pants, which I wear pretty much 7 days per week. The straight edge is perfect for opening packaging tape on shipping boxes. Seems to be very well made and looks great. I like this knife a bunch.

          Comments about Duluth Trading General Powell's Pocketknife:

          As mentioned, this is a small knife. I honelstly was disappointed in the size, but it has since become my everyday carrier! I find the size perfect for a multitude of tasks.

          Blades are sharp and very useful. I have actually shaved with the flat razor blade, just to check out whether I could. (one wants to be presentable should the zombie apocalypse come).

          I find it is well made - haven't had any troubles and I have had it for 3 months now.

          I was a little disappointed in the wood scales - they weren't as nice as they looked in the catalog, but hey, that's how wood is!

          This is a great little knife for a gift or as an executive knife, where you don't want to whip out a huge pocket knife to open something - it's also great for small animal and bird cleaning, the sharp little blades make fast work of skinning.

            Comments about Duluth Trading General Powell's Pocketknife:

            The metal strip in the back that applies pressure to keep the blade open (doesn't lock it though) broke in the middle and fell out. It is very cheap, lightweight pot metal.

              I keep this in my pocket all the time. It's not just for skinning squirrels, but opens packages, slits envelopes, prunes plants. Never leave home without it.

              Knife is very well built and extremely sharp, but there was no size description and the pictures made it look larger than it is. It is in the newest flyer that was sent out and now has a size description. Overall a very good knife, just too small!

              Comments about Duluth Trading General Powell's Pocketknife:

              Looking for a REAL knife that I could take to work without it being considered a "weapon". It is 3" closed and 5" open, perfect. Blades have some beef to them. Replaced a small Swiss Army brand knife that was just too flimsy. Yes it is made in China but clearly to some standard. Burlwood is nice. Have dropped it a few times on concrete from my pocket (~3 ft drop) and it has survived. Looks like it should serve me for years.

                Keep the knife in my shaving bag, it's compact and handy. The one thing I would say is the picture on the website makes the knife look bigger than it really is.
