Product Description
Spanish for wasp, the Avispa from ESEE is swift and packs a sting. With a 5-inch handle and a 3.5-inch blade made from D2 tool steel, it’s plenty big enough for tough cutting tasks Read More

Decent knife for the money, BUT; the crappy pocket clip design means you have to mod the clip for tip up carry or the knife is nearly impossible to open or unlock with one hand. Couple of Youtube vids on ways to do the mod and they work..........but, really, this should have been addressed (and easily could have been with a simple adjustment in screw hole placement) in the original design. Overall, the Ontario Rat series are better versions of the basic design. Why no drop for them?? Hello?

Good value, useful blade shape and super solid lockup. The frame lock design makes it slim in the pocket.

Not a bad knife at all. It's thinner than my RAT1 D2, but nowhere near as smooth in deployment. I keep it as an EDC bag knife as a backup. For the price, you can't beat it at all!

Over all it is better than I Expected. It is compared to the RAT 1 by the same designer, which I also have in D2, and like a lot; but I like the Avispa more. It has to do with the blade shape and the daring naked clip side to save weight(?) and be less abrasive in the pocket(?). I give it 5* for quality for this price which makes it very usable vs other very good but more expensive knives. I will probably wind up with with the smaller version as I have with the RATs and the Paras.Can't not want to.

Good knife. I've been using it for about a year and it has held up really well. It's well built and holds an edge. I got the black blade and a lot of the black has chipped off along the spine.

Good, solid, nicely-made knife at an attractive price. This one sees a lot of time in my pocket, and a lot of use. Unlike some reviewers, I've had no difficulties opening, or closing, the knife one-handed. I think that is often more a matter of the user's individual hand size, than a knife's design. I'd certainly buy another.....

Great knife for the $$$, actually the second Avispa I've purchased through Massdrop, and I'll probably buy another.

A basic, solid, useful knife design. Works well as a tool, as a knife should while the handle is functional, but not the most comfortable. My previous benchmade Pardue 520 has a much better handle and the axis lock is a better mechanism, however the price is ridiculous and functionality is only a minor improvement.
Having said that, the way I carry my blade (tip up, blade to the back, right pocket) actually puts the clip over the liner lock and increases the force holding the lock closed, which improves my confidence in the mechanism. It’s actually a chore to close the knife one-handed.
For the price I wholeheartedly recommend this knife. It’s serves me well daily at work as a paramedic and in my outdoor life. When I again lose my EDC blade (like I always do) I will definitely buy another.
