    Updated review! Ignore the “but”

    Posted by John on 4th Jul 2020

    Forget the ‘but’ in my last review... this knife is brilliant. The more I carry it the more I realise all the little things make sense, the motion is loosening up nicely, I find myself sitting fidgeting with it more and more, perfecting the little wrist flick to deploy, and close is hugely satisfying. The super solid click as the axis lock pops into place, the blade shape is perfect, the grip and texture of the scales is brilliant, I’ve been using it for food prep, gardening, as well as the usual opening and cutting up boxes and after original sharpening it’s still holding an edge!! So I now understand the hype! Superb, brilliant, class!!! Stupid U.K. knife laws make this unsuitable for an edc... just need to cautious and ensure I’m not searched.

    Really good but....

    Posted by John on 2nd Jul 2020

    Thanks to the huge amount of hype surrounding this knife I just had to get one, managed to land myself one of the red handled limited run. First impressions are great, it’s light and well made, blade wasn’t as sharp out of the box as I was expecting. It literally vanished into the pocket due to size shape and how light it is. Ergonomics in use are great, deployment of the blade isn’t easy with bigger hands, the thumb stud sits close to the handle and can be tricky, maybe just need more time fidget flick practicing?? It’s already been put through it’s paces and has tackled heavy and light use, and had no problems. It’s a really good knife, it ticks all boxes and then some, but... the hype prepared me for so much more, due to the super lightness it’s verges on feeling flimsy, although it isn’t. Deployment isn’t as slick as I imagined,. This is a brilliant knife but not quite sure how often I’m going to carry it, heavy duty for camping etc I use spyderco Manix 2 XL, my normal daily carry is usually a UKPK and more recently the real steel Luna HH edition. Don’t be put off but don’t get too caught up in the hype.

    i really wanted to love this knife and I've carried it quite a bit and its great for everyday tasks but i always seem to drift back to my mini grip i guess its just personal preference, amazing edc knife tho all the same, just not for me

    Perfect EDC, is the one that spends the most time in my pocket

    Posted by Alan on 6th Jun 2019

    Among all the folding blades I have, the bugout, isn't the one I would pick for a bugout situation but it is the one I will choose to carry most of the time.

    Slim, extremely light weight, great blade, great blade shape and slicer, the best deep cary pocket clip I have used, holds an edge for a long time and very well.

    After a while the blade fl**ks open and closes in the best way. No other knife is more fun to me for that. It's like the closing is assisted at the very end, it's the best experience really with an axis lock, even more fun than with my Mini crooked river.
    .
    Some say that the handle is too flexible, and yes, it can be, but I am a light user and the knife covers very well 98% of what I need from it.

    When I don't carry a legal knife, I carry the bugout. I even bought the other color as well and am in love with both.

    Thanks HH for an amazing service.

    Perfect high quality stuff.

    Posted by Colin on 23rd Jul 2018

    This is a great knife, if every ounce matters. Its slim and thin weight is only 1.86oz its perfect for camping but keep in mind the construction is minimal but its not going to break on you if you don't abuse it. All in all its a great knife if weight has to be minimal it's a great choice.
