I got this a few weeks before this drop and it is very nice, super sharp out of the box and very smooth opening. Note this it is BIGGER than it looks in the photos and it very weight forward when open -- in other words it is not just cleaver shaped, but it has a real cleaver feel as well. I really like it. Even though my wife is totally used to me pulling a knife out to open a box or cut some pizza, when I pulled the Osprey out the first time, she actually said, "What the hell is that?" "Why, a pocket cleaver, of course!"
Is the detent strong enough to keep it from being shaken open with the heavy blade? I ordered one in orange, but I'm really curious if I'll ever end up carrying it.
Yes, I would say it is pretty strong, and the blade and handle geometry also work well to keep the knife closed .
Not in my case. This is the easiest knife to open without using a flipper that I own. Opens with a mild shake, 100% of the time. It's like it has no detent at all. A lot of the blade spine sticks out of the handle when closed also. And the blade closes under its own weight once the lock is released with some alacrity. An accident waiting to happen, and more of a novelty than a useful knife. Bring it on the office picnic if you'd like to get fired!
I have the same impressions now that mine has come in. I haven't done a review on it yet, but I see this as a beater shop knife. I've used it to trim ABS plastic on some Jeep lighting upgrades. The D2 is plenty tough, but the shape isn't exactly EDC friendly. Still happy with the knife overall. It excels at breaking down cardboard.
Yes, agreed. the steel is good quality, the grind was decent, and plenty sharp. Definitely not EDC, but kind of fun because it is so over the top. G10 was nicely done also.
