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
