The popular Lightning automatic is a sensible OTF knife choice for value-minded enthusiasts! Fit and finish are great for the price and the action is outstanding. The Lightning is 100% usable and the wow factor is undeniable! Everyone should have at least one of these knives in their collection.

This model has a black powder coated aluminum handle with a textured surface to facilitate good grip. The firing button is mounted on the side, making the Lightning slim and easy to carry. The blade is satin finished stainless steel and marked "LIGHTNING" on the top.

The Lightning OTF knife is outfitted with a clip for pocket carry, but if you're looking for a neck carry option then take a look at the Custom Linos Kydex Lightning OTF Sheath!

Please note that there may be some chips in the paint from shipping, but otherwise these are the same great knives you love!

Good knife overall
Graeme A.
I've really enjoyed this knife, it rarely misfires and is fun to use. My only complaint is that it is rather loud when it is closed due to the blade rattling around in the handle. I would highly recommend it nonetheless, it is a great knife for the price.
best knife I own
matthew w.
This thing is better than described it is made to be used every day I don't leave my house without it it's super sharp and tough this by far is the best knife I have ever owned!
love it
Johnny J.
This knife is awesome. Right out the box it was razor sharp. It hasn't misfired once.
Pretty amazed
Charles P.
The knife seemed flawed at first, constant misfires, but after several hundred opens it works almost perfectly now. Less than 10 misfires in 100 approximately. Fires hard and fast. The paint is perfect.
Blade is dangerously sharp, it can sliver newspaper into ribbons. Very solid when open although there's some play.
Would buy another with black serrated blade definitely.
8-17 -UPDATE - spring has 'calmed down' a little and it only misfires once in every 100 openings or so, very rarely. Still real sharp and easy to sharpen.
great knife
ben B.
great buy, but it does misfires
amazing best knife in a long time

I had been thinking about getting an otf da since my state passed the law last year, and finally plunked down for this one to start with. Very nice. Did a lot of research first. Extremely sharp, nice blade, consistent and strong action. Big blade but actually lightweight. The dual action is much safer and more handy then the assisted which we have had legal for years now, as it is much safer to close. The button is not easy to pull, so effectively is like having a child lock or safety. But easy enough for fast action.

it a good knife for a good price
The action is FAST. the blade is SHARP! and the fit and finish is great. just an occasional misfire keeps this from five stars.
Decent Product
Nathan V.
Had to edit my original review. After examining the knife, I found out it was just a misfire, and I was able to fix it. Therefore, the product performs well at the price. I would recommend it.
More than expected
Sam E.
I use this as a work utility knife and the thing just keeps on trucking. Holds an edge really well and shows no signs of tarnish or scratches despite the abuse. Definitely suggest for a cheap OTF
Great EDC
George H.
This, for the price point, is an excellent knife.
I've been carrying one daily for some time, with daily use.
No ... it was not a "razor" out of the box, yet with very little work on my sharpener it sure is. Maintains it's edge fairly well, even with hard service.
A man would be hard pressed to find a better value in a one hand EDC.
Microtech clone
Chris A.
I've own this knife now for a year and I never had any problems with it, came off track but easy to fix, came in razor sharp, and blade pops right out, has a good edge, like it supposed to, and this is a must have worth for the money, and this is a Microtech knock off, I love this knife and I'm happy with my purchase.
Amazing find!!
david m.
This is such an awesome knife, that I got mine three days ago,and have already ordered another, just to have a back-up. You cant go wrong with this purchase.
Not too shabby ....
Joshua M.
Excellent knife for the price. Mine does misfire once or twice out of every 100 firings, but when it does, all I have to do is then inertia-open it and it goes right back on track every time. I don't know what the blade steel is but I can assure you that after a few strokes on the ceramic it's razor sharp, one of the sharpest knives I own. There is definitely blade play in all four directions but it's not too bad .... it'll still cut. This knife is great for impressing your friends who have probably only seen OTF automatics in the movies and don't even know where to get one. They'll love playing with it, flicking it in and out over & over like a tattoo needle.
