I can't believe anyone with a brain would give a negative rating on these excellent knives! I have three (3) of this very model, they are all just superb! I am going to purchase more, to give to special friends as gifts. Their action is fast, and precise. The safety lock in the handle is classic; the revolving front lock release is genius. I love this knife.
I'm not very satisfied. Shipping was fast. The knife does have a solid/strong release mechanism. It is not a terrible finish. The sharp side of the blade is as dull as the back. The blade doesn't look like it is 440 steel to me. I had high expectations based on the other reviews....makes me wonder if they are legit???
I was surprising pleased when I opened this package. What a really cool, well put together and inexpensive knife. If you aren't sure about collecting stiletto style knives and don't want to spring for the cash on a Big Name import, this is definitely for you! It has a very strong spring and a well balanced blade giving it a swift opening and a great lockup. I have a pretty large collection of Italian Stiletto Switchblades yet I keep checking this little guy out. Each and every time I get impressed all over again.The extra 3/4" makes a difference too as to how this piece lays in my hand. Most of my Stilettos are the classic slim style and anything under 11" is usually awkward to handle for me. This little black beauty seems to just fit like a glove. Grab one or two before they're gone.They make great stocking stuffers. Sweet
