The knife casing is too fake even if it is plastic it looks cheap, even though thats what I wanted, a cheap pocket knife. I wouldn't even carry this one. The case does not "encase" the knife. The case consists of two halves that are pined together with small metal rods and open all the way around. Little fingers, or whatever is in your pocket can easily find their way to the blade and get cut up. It got two stars becasue it has a blade lock when open and is stainless steal otherwise you might as well carry an open blade in your pocket.

Was very hesitant to buy a china bred knife. Pretty much every knife, plier, boots, etc that is made in China is [...] poor quality. This knife however is awesome. Sharp, sturdy, tight blade. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's a USA made knife that someone just misprinted made in China. Promise you won't be disappointed!
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.
