A quick review of the Southern Grind – Bad Monkey (Satin Drop Point).
Overall I am very pleased with the knife. They got quite a few things right and this is a strong offering from this new company. Fit and Finish are excellent. Not sold on the clip design and the steel choice is questionable at this price point. However, I was aware of those features before I bought the knife and yet I bought it none the less. The blade steel, although not ideal, should hold up to EDC tasks without any problems, and it also takes a wicked edge fairly easily.
Forgot to mention the Open Pillar Construction, hopefully that is obvious. The thumb stud isn’t completely round, has cut outs for additional grip, works well.
