A very handy inexpensive knife. It is well designed and constructed. Very handy from pruning trees. propagating plants to animal husbandry.
In hunting and camping usefulness it excells. I have bought 5 of these over the last year or more to hand out to young friends and family to teach knife useage and care. Bringing the old ways to the computer generation so to speak.

I was very pleasantly surprised when I opened this package. With a price so low I wasn't expecting muck in the way of a quality knife but this knife IS quality. Good weight, great feel in the hand, nice stout blade and very, very sharp. Typical Boker quality.

It's easy to go overboard these days. There are so many choices for consumers. If you go shopping for a good basic pocket knife you will find there are hundreds of choices. There are guys on YouTube who will spend ours showing you their knife collections. While most everyone admits that they use these knives to open cardboard boxes from Amazon where a $2 utility knife would work just fine, some guys do have issues with one handed deployment and the type of steel used. I was just looking for a light knife to carry in my pocket. I work retail and open a lot of boxes. There are lighter knives available. This knife is slightly heavy for every day carry, but is so well made that I forgive the weight. It really is a solid knife that comes good and sharp. It "can" be opened with one hand after a little practice, but there are better knives with spring assisted and flip and lever openers if one handed deployment is important to you.
All in all, it is a bargain. At the STP sale price, you'd be hard pressed to find a better blade for the price. Boker is a good brand, though this is certainly a low end Chinese Boker, not a German knife. Buy two at the sale price, give one as a stocking stuffer or keep it in the glove box. If you are a knife nut, collector, or fancier of fine things, pass on it and look for Kershaw or Spyderco knives. But for basic utility, EDC, and value this knife cannot be beat.
This knife has a safety clip, if you look there is a metal piece below the blade that you push to release the blade.

Aloha Nilda....look at the base of the sharp edge of the blade of your knife - there is a metal piece that has little scallops on it that locks the blade open. Hold the knife in your right hand with the blade up and press that little lock to the left with your thumb nail and GENTLY push the blade down - be CAREFUL not to push the blade hard or you will cut yourself!

At the first finger grip (closest to the blade) push the grooved metal towards the clip and close.

There's a tab in the handle. Carefully press the tab down and bend the blade closed. You can locate the tab by holding the knife vertically with the length of the blade facing you, at arms length. In the cavity where the blade closes into, there's a bar that's angled slightly - this is the lock mechanism. move the bar so that the blade can move past it into the cavity. Be careful not to cut your self.

Watch my video...but see the notched looking part up against the knife blade when it's open? That moves over to hold the blade in place when "clicked" open. So with your fingernail, push that part towards the outside, hold, and push the blade back in. It takes a little practice to get it down with one hand.

Push the linerlock (thin piece of steel inside the knife body) to the side. This will allow the blade to close. The linerlock actual moves under the blade pivot when you open the knife to lock it in place.

There is a tab in the slot that the blade rests in when it is closed, you have to push it to one side and then you can close the blade.
