    Some definite issues

    Posted by Pete on 20th May 2019

    Bought this in December 2016. I justified the purchase by convincing myself that this was the gentleman's pocket knife that I would keep my whole life and perhaps even pass on. Unfortunately, after two years of ownership it was looking in a sorry state.

    The first problem was my fault and not the knife's. I lost it for a few months and by the time I'd found it again it had developed some rust. This was a bit worse than surface rust and needed the lightest of sanding to restore. Unfortunately, as the knife cannot be taken apart easily the rust between the scales cannot be accessed and is getting worse. This is my fault but is also, in my opinion, a shortcoming of riveted knives made in a steel that has a relatively low resistance to rust.

    Secondly, I don't really understand the whole left-handed/right-handed thing. Once scale is thinner and concave and the other is thicker and convex. I really can't see how the asymmetry is helpful whichever way I am holding the knife. I would have preferred both scales the same.

    I suppose I'm going to have to take the rivets out to clean the rust so I might as well make some symmetrical replacement scales whilst I'm at it. Not something that I wanted to have to do to such a nice looking knife.

    Classic pocket gold

    Posted by Dan on 19th Jun 2018

    Bought this classic pocket knife to be a gift. Really please with the example I received, excellent file work on the back of the blade and back spring. Pretty sure it's not the nail nick that denotes this knife as left or right hand. The horn handles are matched so that one scale is scalloped where your *index finger wraps under. The blade itself is polished and takes a sharp edge with ease. Lovely example of a knife still made in Sheffield.

    Excellent all round

    Posted by Cupcake on 4th Aug 2017

    First of all a thank you to Heinnie for the excellent service and fast postage. Secondly what a awsome little pocket knife. Sturdy, very well made with no cosmetic faults. Workmanship is of genuine quality.... and I'm really fussy over this stuff! Came sharp, few stokes on a steel and it shaves hairs of, worked back looks great. Opens and closes with a reassuring snap and with no sideways movement of the blade. In all I'm very happy and will be back.

    Disappointed

    Posted by Chris on 17th Jan 2017

    I've had the Senator for a couple of years and I'm generally pleased with it so decided to go for the workback. The knife arrived next day (great service) in a jiffy bag, the knife itself was wrapped in clear plastic and as soon as I took it out of the jiffy bag I could see the first problem , the blade is completely off center and touching the liner on one side.

    I took it out of the plastic wrapper to give it a once over and found the dodgy blade centering isn't the only issue, the fit and finish are pretty bad in general

    Gap on one side between the stag scales and the liner
    Gap between liner and back spring that I could watch TV through
    There's also a dink in the underside of one of the bolsters

    The stag scales are also thicker on one side than the other and one side is convex and the other concave. I don't know if this is actually intentional and why it's called "right hand". I 'd assumed right hand just referred to the placement of the nail nick but perhaps it refers to this, either way I don't care for it, I prefer symetrical scales

    To be honest I'm a bit disappointed that this was sent out like this, the off centre blade was clearly visible through the plastic wrapper. I appreciate that returns are free but it's still inconvenient to have to send it back

    So it's going back and won't be bothering with another as I think there's a high probability that a second would also have issues. I really wanted to like this knife but it's put me off Arthur Wright, don't think I'll bother with there products again (unless it's in a shop where I can sort through half a dozen and pick the best)

    Excellent little pocket knife

    Posted by Derby58 on 17th Oct 2016

    Very pleased with overall quality. Nice file work. Blade centers when closed. The stag scales are good quality and very tactile. The best bit is its British.

    Clever lefty

    Posted by Sunny Jim on 21st May 2015

    a simple thing like having the nail nick on other side shows time and consideration for us lefties, so answering gents below yes they are just opposite, stunning knife I have had mine for several years and its a lovley hand me down keepsake as will go forever.

    Confused ??

    Posted by James Bruce on 20th May 2015

    Being an avid knife collector, fancy getting one of these "older fashioned" knives for my Dad's birthday. He probably won't appreciate it and will end up throwing it in one of his junk drawers and will stick to his wee Leatherman Micra I gave him years ago. I'm a bit confused that HH offer this knife as both a left and right handed knife. Is this a joke / error ?? Whats the differance ?? Images of both, look the same. Is the nail nick on different sides of the blade depending on which model you choose ?? Any advice appreciated. Dad is right handed.

    Great knife

    Posted by Owen on 19th Apr 2014

    I bought the LH version 18 months ago, it's still my edc, takes and holds a razor edge for some time and gets used for a variety of tasks from opening boxes to whittling/ carving. The carbon steel blade is beginning to develop a nice patina, glad I took the chance and bought it despite a few negative reviews. Can't recommend it enough. Pity they don't make a spearpoint version...

    Left hand version

    Posted by Steve on 7th Dec 2013

    Just bought a second one of these (the left hand version as it?s currently a) in stock and b) £25 cheaper!). It?s as good as the first one I bought-great little sharp knife which is admired by many people who see it. Very tactile, bought a second as I liked the first one so much!
