Disappointing

By Gary

from Miami, FL

About Me Outdoor Enthusiast

COMMENTS:

Pretty small. Blade seems sharp but how well it will hold an edge is debatable. Like others have said, can't do much with it. No apple slicing or real cutting with it. Kinda expensive for the size and quality.
Not very happy

          COMMENTS:

          I got this knife as a bonus for ordering something else from Duluth, so I'm not really upset that it's not that good. If there were an option for half-star increments, I would have given this knife 2.5 stars.

          The good:
          a) I like the shape of the "razor" blade, it's great for opening boxes and packages, or cutting string, etc.
          b) It seems well made, but I don't carry or use it often.

          The bad:
          a) It's pretty small, making it difficult to use well.
          b) For something that's pretty small, it sure carries badly in your pocket. (It's oddly shaped, and "thick".)
          c) The "regular" style blade is pretty much useless. Too small to slice an apple or anything like that. The "opening hole" doesn't work, at all.
          d) You can't open the "razor" blade on the edge of your pocket as the copy suggests. Believe me, I've tried. A lot.

          In the end, you'd probably be better served with a small Swiss Army type knife. Just as, if not more, functional, and it would have more tools you can use.

              COMMENTS:

              Had this knife for a short while pretty much sits in the drawer...within a few weeks the rear tang that keeps the knife locked and tight broke so the square front blade just drops out and won't lock
