Impressive Knife at Surprisingly Low Price
I have bought three Bad Blood knives so far and they are all high quality additions to my collection at a much lower price than I would expect.This knife, the Fire Splitter, is quite a heavy knife, which I would say is its only obvious drawback. I can't carry it in my back pocket, but it fits nicely in front, It opens smoothly and easily. The blade is perfectly centered and has no wobble. It certainly seems capable of splitting firewood and other heavy duty tasks. It locks up soundly with a satisfying thunk. The frame is strong metal on both sides, partially explaining the weight. The rest of the weight is explained by the large thick blade and convenient flipper.Aesthetically it is a pleasing knife. The clip is wide but unobtrusive, with no annoying logos or sharp edges. The handle is attractive and functional with a strong comfortable grip. The blade is a monster for a pocket knife.I have over 100 knives to choose from, many costing 5-10 times as much, but the Fire Splitter has been my EDC since it arrived in the mail.There are great genes in the Bad Blood line and I am sure I will soon have all of them.
