Hey I saw you unbox this knife and it came with the grizzly creek, since your are not a big fan of wood scales and don't hunt, I'll gladly accept it.😂

This knife is the full package: classy, sturdy, buttersmooth (de-assisted) and holds an edge forever! Also the coating on de BK version is very scratch-resistant. Super recommended! Great review for a great underrated knife!

Good looking blade, I really like the slits on the blade for grip. Not crazy about the assisted feature(don't worry, I won't unsubscribe😉) but other then that sweet blade.
Thanks for the awesome vid!🍻

Always thought these were cool. The fit and finish on the ones I handled weren’t great though. They may have fixed the issues at this point but they all would not lock up without play. The machining on the aluminum wasn’t great either, sharp edges etc.
