Mine tore up after a week so I just threw it away. I guess u get what u pay for. Save up an get quality.

I have a Microtech Combat Troodon, Makora, plus a few Ultratechs. I also have a few Schrades and Lightnings and though they are budjet priced they are still very cool to have. Plus if you lose one you are not out that much and can get another.

great knife for light duty edc.
For fidgetting…. Im learning balisong tricks for that :).
the taiwan lightning otf are supposed to be the best (slash2gash have them)

I'm looking for my first OTF and I'm leaning towards the lightning due to the price vs quality. Thanks for a timeless review. This is 5 years old yet still super helpful. Thanks scout.

The clone od tanto I just got has three scews on the pocket clip and it's tight ! It works perfect and sounds great !! It doesn't rattle when closed ! $46.00 , a good price for a good knife ! Not hard to operate !

If you're worried about this accidentally firing off into your leg or something like that just…don't worry about it. XD

I have the exact knife he's showing. Had it for 3 years now. I don't EDC it though but there have been no issues. Its actually good to carry for self defense since its light and conceals easily. Good for jogging or on local walks or hikes depending on your local laws on otf autos.

It would be interesting to hear exactly what "work" your doing around the house with an automatic knife?

Man I wish I lived in the states just for your weapon policies. In Canada I get arrested for carrying a freakn torsion bar assisted knife. So lame

Seems there is no middle ground for otf knives, either cheap or expensive. Any mid quality, price ones?

Highly recommend only the Taiwan Lightning otf. But I have been carrying for 5 plus years on multiple extreme duty jobs and thousands of hours, plus many hours off the job. What ive learned is the finish will wipe off significantly so you will have to deal with that. I dont care about that. And the blade is dull, even after sharpening. It is kitchen utensil steel. But I used it to cut painted shut windows, cardboard, screwdriver, yardwork, insects, auto maintenance. So it holds up well. There is 2 holes on the bottom of the housing. Use that to squirt TW25B grease into for lube, amongst other places on the otf knife. Cant recommend it enough. Dont think the $500 knives are 'better'. They will usually be spoiled safe queens and for the price, I can have a Huge FLEET of these Lightning OTF's.
