      Comments about Duluth Trading Folding pocket knife - Japanese Carpenter Knife:

      Great knife for lots of uses, but I've used it with great success to open appliance boxes. The tough corrugated boxes are no match for this knife. I lost the first one and liked it so much, I bought a second one. It's great for small odd jobs around the house, too.

                Professional grade woodcarving tools have wood handles an easy to grip. The metal case is rough on top and designed like a box cutter. I am going to return it.

                      Too delicate for the purpose I bought it.
                      Gave it away as a present (bought it for myself) and it was received with great happiness. Will buy a more robust knife for my construction job uses.

                        I'm a colector of knifes so I really don't use most of the ones I purchas, but I will use this one and I do carry it with me all of the time.

                              I really like the convenience that the knife offers. I use the knife as one would normally use a pocket knite- everything from peeling an apple to stripping a wire to opening mail. I was not particulary pleased that the blade loses it's edge so easily and that it is easily nicked. I would be happy to spend a little more for the exact knife with better steel in the blade.
