Maxam SKPKWD Brown Pakkawood Liner Lock Knife

I really had high hopes for this knife as it looks really clean and classic. Unfortunately, it leaves a lot to be desired. When I got the knife out, it sort of fell cheap right away. I get that it's only $12.50 (at time of writing) but it was absolutely dull when I got it. Sure, I can get behind needing to put a little extra edge on a knife when you get it, but this didn't even have an edge to sharpen! I was really disappointed by the dullness out of the box.

I will say that the knife does look really cool and I feel that it's weighted well. Fully extended, it's the length of the majority of my forearm. It has a smooth action, it clicks into place, it doesn't snag anywhere, and it's easy to fling it open. I love that last part...makes me feel like I'm in a movie! Upon closer inspection, I found that the screws seemed to be rounded out which made me feel like I'd be hard pressed to work on this knife if I ever needed to.

Overall, this knife didn't impress me. It was very dull, it felt like a cheap carnival knife, and I don't think it'll last long with regular use. As I mentioned above, it does have some nice qualities as well, but not enough to redeem it.
