nice knife only thing I found wrong is the pocket clip came off while while wearing it. Oh well the knife is small enough to fit in my pocket so no harm done (only reason it got 4 stars not 5)
Purpose: EDC/Light cutting

United Cutlery's M48 Kommando line has been met with varying reviews. They are known chiefly for their version of the Vietnam tomahawk, and the line has branched out into many different products, some better than others.
This $10.00 pocket knife is a $10.00 pocket knife... not that there's anything wrong with a $10.00 pocket knife, but know what you're buying.
The blade came with an OK edge. First thing i did was take it to the sharpener. it took a pretty decent edge, but it is stainless... you know the routine. It certainly takes an edge well enough to do some cutting. The black coating is kind of fragile, and will come off with day to day use, but does look nice while it lasts. The assisted open is very tight out of the box (will probably loosen up a bit with use), so you have to put a decent amount of pressure on the finger stud to get it to flip open. Once it does, tho, if flips open quietly and has enough push to lock into place. This blade safety is a liner lock with a fairly small, angled thumb stud which also requires a fair amount of pressure to push out of the way to close the knife. On mine, the liner lock doesn't go very far over towards the center of the blade, so watch how hard you press and DON'T put any pressure on the back of the blade. If you do, you may not be able to count as high as you used to, or will, at least, need a good supply of band-aids. Just a heads up. The hinge is NOT overly strong, so I would NOT advise doing any kind of stabbing/digging/thrusting with this blade. At best, you'll probably break he tip, at worst, the blade would likely break at the hinge. This is strictly a cutting knife.
The handle is plastic, and the scales are reasonably tight (mine has the slightest of gaps between kn ife frame and the scales themselves) and are secured with a few small, star bit screws at the bottom and one larger near the top which also acts as the pivot pin for the blade. Handles feel smooth (see: slick), and the M48 medallion is a nice aesthetic touch. The back side has your typical pocket clip which should hold the knife in place, and the glass breaker at the pommel...well.... it breaks glass. Handy should the situation arise.
What's the bottom line? Not a working man's knife, but if you're in the market for a nice looking, stiletto type folder, and you don't do a lot of heavy duty cutting, this might be worth a look. If you're someone who puts their knife thru it's paces on a daily basis as I do, Bud K has a LOT of other, reasonably priced knives that you'll probably be happier with.
Again, not condemning this knife by any means, just know what you're getting.
I bought 2 of them..I never leave home witthout them...The dim spike works good on pressure points and the quality is superb...they came razor shharp and ready for action....An outstanding stiletto. If you like stilettos as I do don't pass this one up. Great value and functionality.Thanks again trueswords.
TO ANYONE CONTIMPLATING THE PURCHASE OF THIS KNIFE.......BUY IT. I BELIEVE THIS PROCDUCT IS SECOND TO MANY OTHER LIKE KNIVES.I WILL GIVE THIS KNIFE TO MY FRIENDS AS A GIFT WITHOUT ANY HESITATION.I WOULD HAVE TO GUESS THAT COLLECTORS HAVE ALSO PURCHASED THIS KNIFE.FEELS GOOD TO HANDLE AND IS SMARTLY CONSTRUCTED.IT NEEDS ADDITIONAL SHARPENING BUT I CONSIDER THIS A SUPERFICIAL ITEM.THIS IS MY THIRD PURCHASE FROM KENNESAW CUTLERY,HOWEVER,NOT MY FINAL.
ONE OF THE BEST KNIVES IV BOUGHT,,SO MUCH SO WHEN I LOST IT ,, I BOUGHT TWO MORE. ID RECOMMEND THIS ASSISTED OPEN KNIFE TO ANYONE
I bought this knife online and when I opened it I fell in love with it. Great knife, great blade, and great handle. One day I dropped this knife on my toe and the blade is so sharp from the box I didn't feel a thing till I looked down and saw blood. Now I'm not going to lie to you it still hurt but not as much as you would think. Plus if anybody has a problem with you the fast blade will probably tell them to screw off. Great knife!!
It's a decent knife, works well, guys love them when I give them as gifts! Seem solidly make, no complaints !
I am very skeptical when it comes to purchasing stuff over the internet. But I have to say that I was quite impressed the day my M48 Kommando arrived in the mail. This knife is everything it claimed to be. It fits well in hand, and the spring assist mech. works great! I going to buy some more for christmas presents.
great product-great value
Sturdy,quality,reliable knife. Looks good as well.
This knife is great especially for the price. Sturdy construction, quick opening, and sharp blade. Very satisfied.
This knife is great and for only 10 bucks it's a steal! The screw near the top of the blade(I forgot what it's called) needed to be loosened and it neads to be sharpened but that's no sweat! Its really easy and speedy-fast to open I love it. This is my new EDC knife! Thanks Budk!
This knife is badass, the handle is perfect and has a nice feel to it and the blade has an extremely sharp point and can slice through anything. On top of that, the assisted open is so fast my friends thought it was an automatic knife. Worth every penny.
This is probably the sweetest knife I've ordered yet,and the sharpest,already buried about a half inch of it in my leg,my fault.I wish it came in a larger size.I'd buy two or three.
This knife is very sharp, but when used for slashing almost anything, the linear lockback goes to far to one side, and you need to get a screwdriver in there to get it back to normal.
Wow just wow this is an amazing buy I just got it today and I love it . Its bigger than I anticipated too! Fast to open but one small complaint is the speed doesn't stay constant after breaking it in but all in all great knife
One of my favorites, high quality sharp, long blade. Good assist mechanism and perfect size. I like the self opening blade spur that you catch on the edge of your pocket and the knife is open as soon as you pull it out. Also has the pocket clip on the right end of the knife so you pull it out and you are holding it correctly so you don't have to flip it over and when it is in your pocket all you see is the clip and the glass breaker point.
This knife works great and easily clips to the inside of my boot. I might buy another one.
best knife that I have bought yet from budk has held up well and all of the screws have stayed in. Havent had any problems with the lock yet. blade takes a great edge and holds it fairly well. after a month or so of regular use it is still working like the day I took it out of the box,I would have prefeered it to have a true 4" blade but close enough
First of all, I agree that this is a wonderful knife. The assist is quick and easy to use. It's sharp and looks great. That being said I had a problem with the blade lock jamming and found the knife itself uncomfortable in my hand as opposed to more traditional designs and the handle felt cheap. For the price, I'd stick with the BudK bk1830 model but that is just one man's opinion.
