    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.

    Good knife

    Posted by steve on 2nd Sep 2017

    This is a great knife. The people saying its big, bulky and looks too "offensive" i think they should look and the pictures and read the description and specs before buying. Yes it is a bit on the bigger side it is a bit heavy but i lile that about it its a heavier knife for heavier tasks. The blade shape makes it a fairly good allrounder aswell. The blade came useable but not what i would call sharp. But a quick toush up and a good strop and its shaving sharp. It doesnt hold the greatest of edges but if you give it a quick strop after bit of heavy use like i do all my knives anyway then youll be fine. The back spring is very heavy. I read one review of someone complaining about it closing on them i have no idea how that whould happen if im honest they probably need a few lessons in how to use a knife. In short its good for heavy tasks but if you want something discreet this is probably not the knife for you.

    An ugly knife

    Posted by Jon on 7th Jul 2017

    It boggles the mind that this is legal, yet other, slightly longer, or even smaller locking knives, are not. This is a great knife if you need a tough work tool to use and abuse all day long. It has zero elegance or style, but boy, does it do what it advertises! Just be aware, the knife is a lot bigger and heavier than you might imagine.

    Chunky and Beautiful (just like Me) NOT..

    Posted by Phil on 2nd Jul 2017

    Lovely knife, very pretty and well assembled and finished. Bit too big for the pocket which is why it has the pouch but nice to hold and use. Sharp OTB and no issues it's just one of those knives that you don't want to "mark or scratch" though. HH just superb on fast delivery again.

    Big, Tough and not for gentlemen.

    Posted by Phil on 2nd Jul 2017

    Thought I'd try a "legal" knife for a change so bought this. As all the other reviews state this is a big folder so not surprised by it's size but if PC plod see's this it's going to be confiscated unless your fighting the zombie apocalypse. Great knife though and glad I bought it. The slip joint is strong so wet hands may struggle but I don't think I'll lose my fingers if I move up the blade though. As usual "world class" service from HH again. Give it a try for £20 it's a no brainer.

    What is says on the box

    Posted by Joshua on 3rd Mar 2017

    I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars, one of the reasons I would mark it down are because of personal preference and that contradicts the "world legal" element of this knife. It comes barely sharp and with a rounded tip which basically makes it useless for *cuts. After a lot of grinding I'm sure I could work this in to a severe tip which would be great for carving and opening tough packages. I like the forward swept blade which feels substantial in the hand. The two stage locking mechanism has a decent amount of spring resistance which means a small child would have difficulty opening it, it also makes it next to impossible to open with one hand. I understand this is necessary to make it world legal but I would be concerned about this if I needed it and my other hand was otherwise compremised. As a result of this I figured out I could open it using my teeth and one hand if I needed to. Once it's open it feels solid in the hand with little or no blade play, the impact tool/window breaker I can imagine would be functional although if you have large hands they may cover past the base of the handle, rendering it difficult to use and potentially hazardous to the hand. The blade I imagine would stay open in most cases as even when * the blade at a solid surface I'm not concerned about it closing on my hand.

    Can't beat it

    Posted by Alex on 4th Jan 2017

    I've had one of these for about 4 years now, haven't left the house without it since it arrived. Its been used daily, for all types of tasks and has been battered and abused like no knife should be.. but after 4 years it is still going strong and hasn't failed me yet. Stays sharp and is a tough little bugger! Worth more than what it's sold for in my opinion!
