    Old Italian sports car

    Posted by TomM on 13th Apr 2017

    I found this this knife a bit of a miss. It's a nice thicker handled sodbuster design and the olive wood scales look and smell fantastic. The finish and finer points are lacking though. There's a noticeable gap between the handle and the liner at the butt end, producing a sharp edge that digs into the palm of your hand during use. The blade is very sharp but the grind is not perfect and the hinge is filled with what I can only describe as tar. The oil used has seeming turned and no longer helps lubrication. I've cleaned this out with wd40 and air but it's still a little grindy. The detent is non existent meaning the blade needs to be forced back into the handle. Not ideal either. I really wanted to like this knife and even knowing it's origin and price, I'm disappointed.

    Good basic EDC

    Posted by Stevo on 7th Apr 2017

    I like this one. It has a more Continental feel than the more stylised and more expensive Case Sodbuster Jr., which is really a comparatively recent iteration, from 1976, when Case introduced the model. It is of course a Farmer's knife, a very old and agricultural pattern. Hence WR Case's name for their model. On the other hand, the Marinera is closer to the real deal, stainless notwithstanding. This feels authentic. You could imagine a European farmer of an earlier century using it daily. It has a feeling similar in cross section to a French Laguiole in that the handle is more so thick than it is deep in your hand. Not that it looks like the famous French folder, just that the wider and narrower parts of the handle feels similarly backward at first. For example, a traditional English lamb foot pocket knife is, like the blade, broad across its sides and narrow when viewed from the spine and back spring. The Marinera is fatter. Mine arrived a bit dull. No big problem, easily sorted. And the steel seems decent. It performs well. The olive scales like a bit of olive oil now and then, applied thickly and left standing overnight. The scales are a deep golden russet colour now, particularly at the joint end, where the end grain has darkened. It looks rich, and quite authentic. True, the stainless will not form a patina, but that is a minor observation. Four stars is appropriate because the blade develops side to side play after a while. Pinching or clamping temporary solves this unwanted sloppiness. I hesitate to hammer the pivot, as I've done for a couple of loose slip joints by other makers. Play is a somewhat common thing in slip joint pocket knives, and it is very worthwhile to learn how to sort the problem. Basically just bash it until it behaves! All right, use due care, and protect the bolsters with at least a paper wrap. Or, realise that you will have to do some buffing afterward. You may anyway. The last session involved an elderly wobbly pocket knife, a rock, some tissue paper, and my battered old Estwing hammer. And some judicious whacking. The result was well worthwhile; a repaired heirloom and boosted self confidence. I hesitate to try it on this little Italian job. No bolsters, so not sure if staking the pivot would split the pretty olivewood scales. For now, I can live with a tiny wobble. So overall, yes, I recommend this pocket knife. Charming, rustic and traditional, it will give an honest day's work. Thank you, HH. A pleasure doing business with you!

    Good value small pocket knife.

    Posted by Hugh on 24th May 2016

    I bought the Olive wood version. It came very sharp and has stayed sharp enough for use without my sharpening it in a couple of months use. It's well put together, everything fits well with no gaps and the blade sits straight with no wobble closed or open. My only gripe would be that it has a very strong back spring, makes it hard to open. I've rounded off the corner of the blade stub where it drags across the spring and that's eased it off a wee bit but I can't do any more as the knife cannot be disassembled.

    Superb for the price

    Posted by Geraint Jones , South Wales on 6th Dec 2014

    I had this bought for me, off my GF for my birthday.. The knife is simply superb for the price. Very sharp from the box, and has a bit of weight to it. The back spring is very strong for a slip joint.. I would recommend this knife to anyone for a UK legal EDC.

    Great legal carry knife

    Posted by John Fletcher on 30th Oct 2014

    Nice little knife, I've had mine for a few years now and I still like it. Of course it is a cheap knife, so a few lacks in finish, but nothing important. All in all a great legal carry knife, certainly worth the money.

    Brilliant for the money

    Posted by Popey on 8th Feb 2014

    Thanks to Heinnie for the stunning delivery and service, they deserve 5 stars ! Now the knife, this is my first Maserin but it will not be my last, out of the box it looks impressive for a sub £20 knife, Nice finish to the stainless blade and paper cutting sharp ( a little bit ragged ) just a little work improves it to a smooth cutting blade. The rest of the knife benefits from the little bit of attention an extra £10 would bring, 5 minutes with the 1500 paper removes all of the slightly sharp edges of the liner and a spot of oil works wonders to the action. All in all very impressive and worth every bit of the price. Well done Maserin

    Pretty little knife

    Posted by Kyle Reese on 22nd Nov 2013

    Bought this as a cheap and cheerful legal carry knife even though I'm not a fan of non-locking folders. The spring is quite stiff so this helps in that respect. Finish is decent, all rivets flush, etc. but the spring does stand a bit proud when closed. Edge is sharp enough to shave out of the box, hope it can keep an edge!

    Reasonable quality sodbuster

    Posted by Jack Black on 4th Jan 2013

    My girlfriend bought me this, rather than the olive wood version, by mistake. I'd have preferred the latter, and it's nearly half the price, but this is a nice-looking knife. Finish is reasonable, but on closer inspection there are plenty of gaps between the spring and liner, and a gap at the rear between the liner and scale you can wiggle a thumb nail around in. Pins are also a little proud. It's a shame Maserin can't work in carbon-steel, or at least in a better stainless, but the blade was nicely ground and came quite sharp. A little work took it to hair-shaving sharpness. I'm not in a position to say how long that edge will last yet. The scales are quite chunky, which makes this a comfortable knife to use, but it takes up more space in the pocket than it would otherwise. All in all, not a bad little sodbuster, but the olive wood version is certainly a better price for a knife in 420, and in my opinion, has more rustic charm.
