Great little knife
Yet another really thin, lightweight blade from BUDK. I just got mine today, but I already love the balance and feel of it. You might just make me a fan of the lightweight blades yet.
Some people say the handel comes of it all in the way you rap it i took it off used paracored and started fron the top over the end and when i got to the hole i put it trew tje hole like a figure 8to the bottem of the hole tight then fed it they the whole at the end and its very strong, good for throwing, the saw on the back is usless but makes it look even more badass
This is a review coming from someone who likes to looks at knives both for their aesthetic value as well as their practicality. I have used many different kinds of knives, but I am hardly an expert. So, my honest, if somewhat inexperienced opinion:
What I like about the knife - The blade came super sharp straight out of the box. Make no mistake, this is a *tactical* knife, a knife designed for combat and survival. The knife's front edge is very well suited for chopping and slicing wood, among other such things, and the steel of the knife will spark if struck against flint or fire steel. The serrated back edge of the knife, though, won't cut worth a damn, but it adds to the aesthetic appeal of the knife. The knife looks and feels very intimidating to use. I have yet to sharpen this beast.
What I do NOT like - The paracord that makes up the handle's grip is not fastened securely. Granted, it's meant to come off, but come on. The underside of the handle has only a couple of thin pieces of wood taped on to the handle. The paracord began to slide off after a good few solid swings, which is a safety hazard; if you can't keep a firm grip on something this sharp, you could easily cut yourself badly. The least they could've done is added some width on the handle itself and on the hilt's sides to keep it from sliding clean off. (Incidentally, while testing the knife on wood, I sliced clean through the slack that made up the lanyard. Clumsy...)
I would rate this five stars if it weren't for the handle's defects. The knife's business end makes the knife, of course, but I don't plan on swinging it around by the blade: a good handle topped by a good blade makes the perfect knife. I plan on either taping or wrapping the handle in something thicker and with more friction to compensate for the lack of hilt. Good buy, but be advised the handle on mine was not well made.
The bracelet I wear everyday. The knife the one time i used it made me very upset. as I was trying to open some coconuts the cord-wrapped handle completely fell apart. I tried to continue using it but it resulted in giving me blisters. Not a good buy.
It's an ok knife when you buy it on sale. But I have no clue what the para cord is for and its too small for me and I'm not even a big person. Get a sharpener because it's ok for a play knife.
It's a nice knife if you get it when it's on sale for 10 or less. I'm iffy on the grip, cause it's just wrapped not an actual grip. But the bracelet thing is an okay size for me, But I have no idea what it's for. Maybe you tie the knife to it and try to conceal it only thing is that doesn't work in reality.
Incredibly sharp knife. The engraving was a bit shallow and hard to see. Also, DO NOT USE FOR CHOPPING! Too much hand friction and the para cord handle slides off. Other than that, good knife.
I got this from a friend through a trade since he had two and I had two Timber Wolf Pocket Kukri Tactical Folding Knives (which I got through BOGO). We made a trade and it seemed pretty darn cool and rather sharp, but I did not like the length of the survival paracord at the end of the hilt. It really took up space and caused some distraction while testing it, so I make it shorter by making a knot, problem kinda solved. The second problem is the sheath and the edges on the dull side of the blade. They could have been saw edges, but they were just square points. These square points regularly get caught on the sheath when unsheathing or sheathing the blade. I find that rather annoying, but other than those two things, I like it =)
its light but very durable the para-cord wrap around the handle is well done my only complaint is the sting that comes off the back of the knife i think is supposed to tie around your wrist but i never use it so it gets in the way but not a big problem at all its a great knife for any bug out bag
Flimsy knife will bend if you put any force on it and it is suppose to be a survival knife so would expect to have at least a sharp edge on it witch it doesn't have anything more then to cut butter with.
the bracelet alone is worth 10 bucks so the pair make a great deal , knife is great and bracelets cool at a great price
For 5 bucks this thing is a beast. Really good knife, strong and sturdy. The paracord wrapping came off quickly, but electrical tape works well.
I've bought 5 Kommando knives in two batches now. They are very basic slabs of steel with an edge. And the not para-cord handles do have a lot to be desired. But at way under a $10 price, they are great for "beater" knives to toss here and there for when you want to cut something. Are they super-duper top quality survival knives? No. And they don't $50 to $100 or more dollars either.So don't compare them to a Randall. I do think they are a great value though. And they are great for project knives other than "Full Tang" is skeletonized ( cut out). I plan to do some grinding and filing on a couple of mine to modify the blades to my liking. And I agree with everyone else that has said that you need to replace or modify the cord wrapped handle. I know at least one of these is going to get a basic duct tape grip. No big deal. The knives are big, the steel is better than you would expect, and you can cut rope and whittle with them. Which is the basic idea of a knife. Worst part of the deal is the sheath, which is just sad. Duct tape the fool thing or make or buy another sheath. The knife is still worth the money and trouble. More than adequate for general yard work or weekend camping for doing anything you should be doing with a tool of this type. Fits the rare need between your pocket knife and a machete. I placed a second, larger order because I'm sticking one of these in the garage, the workshop, the shed, the other shed, and one on my tractor mounted utility box. I can use and abuse them without using and abusing my higher cost knives that I would feel bad about dinging up. I consider these a great value ( and I'm old, cheap, poor, and whiney).
Very good fighting knife, I'm impressed that this knife was so cheap!. I would definitely buy another one for backup. Nylon sheath can be upgraded. Great size, Excellent material, Very sharp. Very good gift for the prize!.
The full tang handle has a huge hole in it. When the cord came off the handle, there was tape with something thin under the tape blocking a huge cut out in the handle. It was thin china wood under the tape to wrap the cord around to hide the hole in the handle. Once the para cord is gone this knife sucks. Stay away from corded wrapped handle knives. The cheap stuff is cheap stuff, under $20 each so don't expect much.
Great knife for an even better price!
This is one of the best knives I have bought in the last few years and I can honestly say for the price I felt like I was stealing. BEST BUY AROUND!! Great quality for value and nothing can beat this.
As advertised, yes. Quality appears good, have not tested as of now, Sheath prob has a chance of snowball in a heat situation. But as a backup, stashed item, knife is ok, Worth the cost. Three stars , due to poor sheath. Bracelet is great for adversary to grab, but handy for other stuff if you keep it off your grabbing handle/wrist.. Is not high quality para cord. All considered, get a couple of these for back-ups.
Very sharp knife. It passed the "paper cut" test with flying colors. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I don't like the paracord wrap. However, I love paracord! I will re-wrap the knife handle with some non-slip tape, and use the paracord for something else. Love the paracord bracelet! I always like keeping one handy. Overall, this is a very nice knife and you just can't beat the price!
