Rated 2 out of 5Â by 330D Confused Product
In short, tried to use it once and am sending it back.
This knife doesn't seem to know whether it's a fixed blade or retractable. The large brass dial needs to be unscrewed to open the body - I have no problem with that.
Unfortunately, when the dial is screwed down to close the body and the blade is extended, the blade is then clamped in position. If the body is screwed together when the blade is retracted, the blade can't be extended.
Having to release the body every time you want to extend or retract the blade completely defeats the purpose of an extending blade knife - it's no longer quick and convenient.
Waste of money.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by AJRSuperstar Faulty version?
Purchased this on the basis of good reviews
Blistered my thumb with the mechanism which jammed after replacing once blade
Could be a faulty individual product given the other reviews
+ Sharp blades and good design
- Mechanism seemed to jam very quickly

Don't bother going for another one, this is well built, easy to handle and feels good in the hand. I have used others in the past and have always been dissapointed.
