Verified Buyer Reviewed by One2ski from Calabasas, CA on Thursday, November 8, 2012Got this for my hubby to carry in his backpack. I'm sure he will love it!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dave from Lyons, CO on Friday, October 12, 2012Too many compromises in quality and usability make this Chinese built tool a poor choice for most uses. It's too bulky and heavy for EDC; too unreliable for fire starting and lighting purposes. It would make a decent "beater" tool or backup when nothing else is available. Can't recommend it, even at less than $20.
- Best Uses: Backup Tool In Glove Box
- Cons: Bad Fire Steel, Chinese Build Quality, Dim Light, Heavy
- Pros: Relatively inexpensive, Sharp
Reviewed by Dave from Colorado on Monday, October 8, 2012Having paid less than $20 for this knife, I'm not going to complain TOO much, but the prospective buyer should be aware of a few key things:
1) The fire steel is very short and of suspect quality. It's difficult to get good sparks from it.
2) The construction is typical of inexpensive Chinese-made goods; not high quality.
3) The overall unit is heavy for its size.
4) It does none of its functions (knife, light, fire starter, whistle) very well and is a compromise in every category.
Having said all that, if you're looking for an inexpensive tool to use for odd jobs, or as a backup to a better tool, you might consider this one. If it fails to meet your expectations, at least you didn't break the bank purchasing it. This knife is definitely sharp enough to cut through most ropes, boxes, carpets, etc. and is a handy tool for the tool box. I find serrated blades are often an indication of a low-end knife (though this isn't by any means a certainty), but they do work well for things like cutting or shearing through tough materials.
- Best Uses: Back-up tool
- Cons: Cheap Onstruction, Heavy, Serrated blade, Short Fire Steel
- Pros: Inexpensive, Multi-function, Sharp out of the box
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sam The Bull from San Diego, CA on Monday, April 23, 2012Fire steel works pretty good, knife blade isn't the best steel but fine for most cutting chores, great for its intend use as an emegency all-in-one tool flash light is fairly bright for its size and better than being in the dark in a pinch, but your not going to be using it to splotlight coyotes anyway, right?
