      Nice but could be better

      Posted by Mr Townsend on 17th Sep 2013

      Ok, very well made...
      Solid knife however I'm not a fan of the curve on the cutting edge as the tip carves the same time as the centre when in use due to the belly of the knife shape.... It ends up cutting bits off wood that you didn't want to i.e. if you were making things with it. Needs a bit of skill in the hands to handle in my opinion. That said so far its a good contender for a solid knife you can rely on. A little rocking of the the blade lockup on mine. Will see if it gets worse. If I only could buy one knife in this price range then I'd go for the Hogue Elishewitz... Great service from HH as always!!!

      Previous star rating wrong

      Should have been 4/5... It is a very good knife - just not my favourite.

      Tough & light

      Posted by two is one, one is none on 9th Feb 2013

      Sturdy tool, high quality fit and finish. Good lock up and perfectly centred - appears light in the hand too considering its chunky body and thick blade.

      I like it and its a keeper, however I'd been lusting after this for some time but was considerably underwhelmed overall when it arrived compared to my ZT 0550, which for the price certainly seems better value. This is still a beast though and will be used hard.

      Tough & Light

      Posted by Tom on 2nd Nov 2012

      This knife is as tough and solid as it looks. It is also surprisingly light for its size.

      Every frame lock needs a Roto-Block! This is my first example and it functions extremely well to completely immobilise the lockbar.

      I noticed that one of the rear handle pivot pins was not flush with the surface of the titanium - I thought they were friction fit and I would likely have to live with it, but it turned out all I had to do was tighten the torx screw to fully retract the pin!

      Very very good

      Posted by uif on 25th Jan 2012

      Lovely piece of kit. One of the better options out there despite premium price level. Would be my EDC if the UK law allowed.

      Great, super quick delivery from Heinnie.

      Solid and robust knife.

      Posted by Chili on 2nd Jan 2012

      This is a solid, yet relatively light knife. It is a bit stiff in the beginning, but it loosens up with use. Its linerless, ie. one of the sides is G-10 only, which is a major improvement. The G10 texture is one of the nicest ive handled and its sits well in the hand. I wish though, it cam with the steel puck insert such as the SR-1, where the lockbar engages the blade. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this as a hard use cutting tool.

      Posted by Ian on 19th Oct 2011

      Designed by Robert Young Pelton and made by Lion Steel. Functionality and quality make for an unbeatable combination.

      Highly recommended for those difficult jobs!

      Great Heavy duty Knife

      Posted by Michael on 10th Jun 2011

      This is a Very Nice sturdy strong folder with some great unique features such as the roto-lock on the frame lock. It's Great high carbon tool steel, and has a very thick blade check the spine out.
      A great and Better value for money alternate to knives in this category such as Strider.
      A real good workhorse, not a safe queen.
