Great little knife to add to your collection
I wear this out quiet often, even most security guards and cops don't look at it twice especially in the silver color. Nice and sharp out of the box and the blade and key are quite strong and look nice. The quality of the aluminum in the handle isn't that great and it shows around the edges, but I think it will hold up well and helps to make it very lightweight. Deploying takes some getting used to but after about an hour you'll have it down no problem. I took out the included chain and replaced it with a longer, curved-link chain since the included one was too short. The allen bolt that holds the blade and the handle needed a little tweaking to give it the perfect amount of stability when deployed without making it almost impossible to deploy because of the added friction.

interesting design
This knife has a very interesting design. Really, it's not even recognizable as a knife and can be worn outside your shirt for easy access.The design comes at a price, however. While it separates from the chain and it's component coupler easily enough, the blade doesn't quite lock. Fortunately, because of the blade's shape, it locks instantly when used.I'm not sure aluminum was the best metal for this knife, it makes for a weak, if not cheap feel. There's also some give in the handle because of this. I wouldn't mind if a heavier and stiffer material were used.Finally, because of the way the blade locks to the handle, there's quite a bit of wobble to the blade once it's deployed. This too gives it a cheap feel.I cut myself once, trying to put the thing back together but then again, I'm a clumsy guy.Still, I'm happy I bought it because the design is so unique.
