The Quietcarry Waypoint Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review

Today, we’ll take a look at a knife that’s an amazing EDC choice, and also coincidentally happens to be rustproof and slicey as heck, the QuietCarry Waypoint.

I found that I prefer carrying the Atom over this knife. M390 is still very rust-resistant, especially with edci. The slim handle design and stiffer detent on the Waypoint ended up being a combo that resulted in disaster for me. I didn't find it very controllable when opening the knife slowly because of the detent. The slim handle offers little grip, especially with the slick surface of the titanium. One day I was using it in wet conditions (like what it's made for), and when I tried to open the knife I bobbled it in my hand which resulted in me almost cutting my finger off. Had to get 11 stitches. I never felt confident in the purchase you get when gripping this knife, especially in wet conditions. I did feel it was only going to be a matter of time before I would drop it and break the tip. If the handle and blade were both increased in their height, and the Ti frame had milling, this would probably be my perfect knife for EDC without question. Unfortunate.

I think it's pretty cool how the thumb stud seems to travel along just the edge of the handle. From a distance it looks pretty much like a boring Swiss Army Knife. It's a little large on the blade.

I can confirm that knife was indeed in Nicks shower on 14 of the nights I accidentally happened to be in a blimp nearby his house with the binoculars mounted to the blimps viewing carriage pointing at his bathroom.

US law requires imported goods to be marked with the country of origin, either on the article itself or on its packaging. There are a few exceptions, but as far as I can tell, knives are not excepted.

The fact that this guy is asking $300 for a knife, is too ashamed to admit where its from, and is apparently violating US law in the process is not a good look.
