Pros: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Awesome Lightweight Stain Resisting Utility Knife
I first checked out the Landslide in a gun store and was immediately impressed with its silky smooth action. Unfortunately they didn't have the plain edge version but KCI did and I saved $30 to boot!The action is awesome, it appears to have bronze washers, The weight of the blade seems to facilitate opening of the knife. The stud thumbs are ambi as is the tip-up only carry. The scales are plastic and remind me of Cold Steel's Grivory. Of course I would have liked to have this in orange G-10 but I believe the knife's N680 stainless steel was designed to work around salt water and is very stain resistant from what I read about it. A G10 handle around water probably wouldn't be the best choice and micarta would be too slipery. There is no blade play, the knife is handsome and the action is awesome. It locks nicely and with some practice your can close it one-handed. Overall I'm very happy with this knife. Bought here at the Knife Center!
