A solid, dependable EDC safety response knife. All blades and functions exceed expectations. Especially appreciate the quality the Swedes placed on the blade. A home run for County Comm. Do it again.
This knife has a lot of the same tools on it that my SAK Huntsman and Leatherman Free T2 have but with much better steel and and, although only slightly larger, the tools are hefty and robust. The saw is as long as the saw on my Leatherman Super Tool 300 and the scissors are are much longer than either the SAK or the T2. The T2's advantage is that the tools lock in place, although the locking mechanisms occupy real estate that reduces the size of the component tools. I carry both tools and the 12C27 steel is far superior than the rendition of the 420HC steel used in the T2. Heck, the T2 loses edge even cutting open a County Comm mailer, of which I've received plenty.
I have gone thru oh SO many pocket knives looking for just the right one for EDC. This one is IT!!! I liked it so much I ordered another to have in case this one magically vanishes… Thanks again for carrying the great stuff you do!
I've used this knife at least twice a week for the past month and a half, and it's left a great impression on me. I have used almost all of the tools, for a variety of different tasks. There's enough blade for the majority of my cutting tasks. The scissors are the best I've had on a multi tool, very sharp and easy to use. The "strap cutter" worked great on some hard to reach zip ties. My intent for buying this tool was to have a robust multi tool that didn't make others nervous, and bring too much attention to myself. Nobody has a second though when I start clipping coupons in the checkout line at the grocery store. This tool has been a great companion when doing work in the office and the kitchen. My major issue with this tool is that the key ring creates a hot spot on my hand when it is open. This has to do with the shape of my hands, YMMV. My minor issue is that the pocket clip is difficult to get over this seams on certain pockets, forcing me to use the fifth pocket on some pants. Again this issue completely relates to me, and where I carry what in my pockets. The plus side of that issue, is that the clip is just as robust as the rest of the knife. So far, I have found this to be a near perfect knife for somebody from the 'burbs.
Better tool offered than most SAK models, better blade steel and high vis G10 scales made this a must have for the pocket survival kit I'm assembling. Come to think of it, most of the stuff going into that kit is from County Comm...
