    Comments about Duluth Trading Folding pocket knife - 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.

      Comments about Duluth Trading Folding pocket knife - Powell's Pocketknife:

      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 Folding pocket knife - 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.
