Andrew Demko knows what he is doing. He does great things with heavy duty knives. I know almost everyone here knows that but I love how he can take what is for all terms a survival knife and turn it into a folder.

Mmmm mmm mm, 💕 that's my kind of knife. So glad that they brought down the price with changing materials. And that handle is sick

Sitting at home fondling my 4 Max Scout anticipating the arrival of my Espada XL.

There's reality, then there's groveling marketing. This long-winded "reviewer" is highly questionable.

The largest folder I have is a Recon 1 with s35v steel and I only bought it for hiking and camping and in case a Mountain Lion jumps on my back and bites my neck which actually happened to a woman where I go hiking—she didn’t make it. They built a turnout on the trail with a memorial bench and plaque in her honor, It’s near the town of Cool in NorCal. I know, I know, a Recon 1 probably wouldn’t help in that situation, but it gives me moral support anyway.

I honestly bought one of these after hearing you describe it as a megapounder in your unboxing

The favorite scenario of every 4 Max Scout owner….

At a small birthday party and someone pulls out a Case folder to cut some zip ties off of a child’s new toy

Immediately whips out 4 Max Scout followed by:

insert Crocodile Dundee accent
“That’s not a knife, THIS is a knife” 😂

I don't get it, what's wrong with the pocket clip? Is it not supposed to look like a pen15?

Clownishly is a word. You're good. Thought you were pulling a Shabazz? BIG knife. I've got the other version.

Great review. Thanks, what do mean "the Benchmade griptilion in this case the Ritter Hogue." Are they the same knife?

MC check out Jimislash he has a video of him beat the hell out of this knife and the scout just laughs at him is that all you got after seeing that video I picked one up thanks for sharing MC
