For the money this is a decent knife. For $30 I didn’t have a lot of expectations knowing full well it was a budget knife. I bought it for the sole intent of building a custom scale for it. As many have stated it can be a bear to disassemble. The screw heads are soft and they use a hard setting threadloc from the factory. So much so that I had to make several applications of a quality penetrating oil while heating the standoff to remove it. The serrations on the frame lock are very rough and will begin to make your thumb sore if you like
to play with your knife. The frame lock is VERY stiff as well but the lockup is rock solid. There are bronze washers on either side of the blade, the action is decent but I found I had to put a lot of tension on the pivot screw to keep tight when opened. That being said, I took the knife apart and went to work on it. Filled down the serrations slightly on the frame lock, rounded the edges on the thumb hole on the spine and built a custom scale for it. I like it better than new at this point. It’s a budget beater IMO. Enjoy the knife for what it is and don’t fuss about what it’s not. $30 isn’t bad for this at all.
