But you get what you pay for here. Clip is awkward and makes the knife ride high out of your pocket. Grip is slick. Appearance is more burnt orange than displayed. It is an $8 knife imho
I have had great Magnum by Boker knives, but this isn't one.

I've used one of these for over two years as a daily work knife. It's not heavy-duty enough to take much abuse, but it has several things going for it. It is extremely easy to both open and close with one hand, it stays sharp for a long time and is not difficult to resharpen, and the color makes it easy to keep up with. The pocket clip is removable by taking out three small bolts; however, if you put the bolts back in, they tighten against the blade, which will no longer open. So you are left with three small holes in the handle. No big deal, but dumb. Also, over time the frame lock weakened and made the lock untrustworthy, but simply prying the lock with a screwdriver fixed the problem. Still, the good outweighs the bad well enough that I just bought a second one. And the price!!

Ergo Slim is solid folder that locks up very good and fits a small hand well. I thought I was getting a bright orange but my was a burnt orange color, much darker overall. Sharp out of the box and smooth pivot. Thumb-stud on my was not deburred and had some sharp spur that needed to be filed off.

Even forgetting the great price, this is a sturdy, well-made knife. It's got good heft, and the molded plastic handle let's you get a good grip. The clip lets it sit fairly deep in your pocket, but not so deep it gets hard to take back out. The blade was pretty sharp out of the box, all around a great simple knife.

For the price this is a solid knife that offers all the features I was looking for in an everyday carry blade. It's an easy one hand open and close which I like very much. I wouldn't classify it as "slim" but it's not too wide to be bulky. Can't go wrong for the price.
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.
