    Happy doesn’t come close!

    Posted by Lee C on 5th Jun 2020

    Fantastic piece of kit! Worth every penny...which as you all can see, isn’t much! Don’t want to go on about the knife, more the service provided! Absolutely outstanding! Looking for a new knife, shopped around, and guess who kept cropping up! For good reason! My purchase arrived that quick it felt like I’d only just closed my browser and the next thing I knew I was opening the parcel! All I can do is say thank you and I WILL be using you again! No doubt!

    Blade seized up after an hours use

    Posted by James on 4th Jun 2020

    The blade opened and closed with ease for about an hour. Then it just grinds when opened and it’s so bad it won’t even slip into the half open/closed position. Was advised I could send it back to get replace but for the cost it wasn’t even worth my time going to the post office. Threw it in the bin

    Lansky world legal

    Posted by John on 22nd Feb 2019

    This could be a great edc/work knife, if !!! it was not so ****dy hard to open and close. If i had purchased this from the guys at h/h i would have sent it back for the reasons stated. have contacted lansky, awaiting a reply. But don't be put off this is obviously a very popular knife as the reviews here testify too. will keep it and over time the issues with opening and closing will ease. So sadly only 4 stars .

    Big, ugly, cheap but the only knife you need, definitely not a gentlemans pocket knife... Clips in my pocket nicely, I don't even know it's there and stays on me all the time. Definitely one of my favourite EDC knifes. HH service was impeccable as usual, big thanks.

    TECHNICALLY legal.

    Posted by Jonathan on 28th Jun 2018

    First, let's get the obvious out of the way. This is a heavy, chunky knife. It's satisfying to hold and to wield, but not satisfying to have dragging down your pockets all day. It's extremely wide too, meaning you won't have much room for owt else if you don't have deep pockets. The blade is similarly massive, being thick and weighty. It's still well balanced but that's just because of the handle being similarly heavy. The blade is forward swept with a slight S-shape to it, which means.... well I'm not sure what. It's not a blade shape designed for any one thing or for general all-purpose use. Which is kind of the point of making a knife intended for EDC. If you're likely to be cutting lots of rope, string or plant matter, get a full hawkbill. If you want a jack of all trades, get a standard drop point. This blade shape is unusual and isn't really going to excel at any one task nor be generally all-round great. I honestly don't know who would benefit from using this over something of a more standard shape. That said, it *is* sharp after just a couple of minutes sharpening, after coming sliiiightly blunt out of the packaging. It's held its edge well too for me. It actually performs well as a knife. Aiding the performance is the ridiculously stiff slip joint. I can't imagine it failing, which is good because if this blade closed on your fingers you'd damn well know it. It's difficult to close, needing two hands and even then I sometimes push the spine against a hard surface or my thigh to do it. Works both ways though, if anyone ever manages to open this one-handed they deserve a medal. A medal they could probably crush with their freakishly strong hands. It's about as close to being a locking knife you can get without having a lock. And then the thing that reallllllly kinda ruins this knife's intended purpose. Its appearance. It's a beautiful, menacing thing. A satin grind effect with a stonewash on the edge, oh my. A super cool tactical-style handle for all those tactical takedowns of cardboard boxes you need to do at work. The lanyard hole at the base can even be used as a glassbreaker. All of which means any police officer who stops you while you're carrying this is going to confiscate it out of your oddly muscular hands immediately. It looks like a weapon to the untrained, and even partially-trained eye, a tacticool American mall ninja device intended to threaten. We know that's not what it is, but at first glance that's what anyone would think. A better name would be the Lansky World Technically Legal Knife. You could theoretically carry this in most countries but would have it confiscated in a lot of them. It's beautiful, in a brutal way, mind. It looks fascinating and unique without being £200+. It's a knife that my friends immediately want to play with when they see my collection (it's destroyed many water bottles and coke cans). The subtle curve of the blade stands out, and the overall brutalist-meets-tactical design really earns it a place over Expensive Folder Knife With Nice Scales #29751 on my display. In that regard I definitely don't regret my purchase. So it's not a bad knife. It really isn't. It feels so sturdy and nice to hold. As a collector it's a wonderful addition to your collection, being cheap but tough and unique-looking. But as a practical knife and an EDC it's just not really the best choice for anything, not necessarily a bad choice if you're not going to get stopped by police but you can just get better everyman blades in the same range. It gets 3 stars as a practical knife. 5 stars as a collector piece. We'll split the difference and give it 4.

    Not bad bit of kit

    Posted by Big H on 9th Apr 2018

    Meaty, Really strong lock for a non locking knife but looks super viscous and you wouldn't want to be stopped with it. Great all round work knife but takes abit of work to open. Deffonately recommend it

    Great knife but the steel...

    Posted by Caleb Able YT on 1st Jan 2018

    Firstly, from a brand know for it's sharpeners you would expect this knife to come seriously sharp, however it came blunt and wouldn't even cut paper. The steel comes with a very hard temper which is good in some respects but it makes it very hard to sharpen. It skates 100 grit sand paper and you really have to press hard to make it bite at all. It comes with a rounded tip with no edge on the final couple of mm, which I suppose is part of what makes it world legal but the tip is one of the most important cutting parts especially on a recurve blade like this so it's a tiresome feature. The handle scales are very angular which makes it uncomfortable to wear inside your jeans, I resolved this by rounding the edges with a file. The handle liners are a non-stainless steel and produce rust, which I have to clean off with wd-40 once in a while. Aside from these things, once I toiled to get a good edge on it and make it comfortable. It's a solid knife with a thick, heavy blade which I've even been able to use for splitting kindling and small branches when camping. The blade extends to a solid, spring tensioned slip joint which I have no fear of accidentally closing on my hand. Once I even dropped it tip first on to tarmac from 20ft and all it showed was a little edge rolling and scratching which cleaned up no problem. Most knives would probably have lost the tip all together from this. If they fixed the above mentioned issues I would give it 5 stars.
