I just received this OTF today, I had ordered two different knives, this one and a D/E double serrated one which is being returned do to issues. This knife does not match the above description beyond it's lime green handle, other then that the description is entirely erroneous. For instance the handle is not fabricated from zinc, I assume its 6061 aluminum, its certainly nowhere near the half pound in posted weight, its actually around four ounces, beyond that its not a tanto its a D/E spear tip/dagger style blade produced out of 400 series stainless per the description, yet perhaps its something else, I cannot say for certain as again the description does not match what I received. The firing action is okay, its closing spring better yet, the knife had an edge but was not by any stretch sharp, though two minutes time and a sharpmaker resulted in a keen edge, the glass breaker is cheap feeling and looking, its painted in an off red that fails to match the red screws and its strangely tacky feeling. At $89.00 cost, a made in China OTF should be equivalent to any USA produced OTF in the $240.00 - $300.00 range, this is because in China labor and production costs are much lower then they are here in the USA, a knife like this can be fabricated in China for about $1.00, a really really good one for about $3.00 - $5.00, thats labor, parts everything. Because of this you'll not hear me say good for the money, or a great buy, for what they are charging it should be comparable to similar sized Microtech, or Benchmade OTF's , the only real difference being choice of blade steel. However its not, there is internal shaking of parts, burrs along the blade, and far to much blade play even by OTF standards. American knife buyers need to stop thinking in terms of good for the money, for $50.00 in China you can expect an awesome knockoff OTF, thats a lot of money on the mainland. Look at it like this, Fenix and Olight vs Surefire flashlights, Surefire produces top quality handheld and weapon mounted lights at a significant premium, often into the several hundreds of dollars or even higher, yet Fenix, and Olight are producing the same types of flashlights of exactly the same quality standard for a tiny fraction of the cost of the Surefire lights, sometimes the product produced by Fenix or Olight is better then that offered by Surefire and costs hundreds of dollars the same standard applies to OTF knives. This seems to be a decent knife, yet for its price point its quite underwhelming, it should be much tighter, sharper, better fit, and smoother in action, its overpriced for what I received, yet it will satisfy kids and inexperienced adult buyers who know no better... Three stars out of five!
