Description

Description

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, partially serrated, 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!

I used this knife for my edc for a few months, it was very nifty working in a shop where I may only have one hand available to open a knife, and having it double action was a bigger plus. Very nifty, fun to play with, easy to show off. It fires very strong and fast, but if it comes in Contact with something while firing it falls off the track easily, will barely go through a piece of paper. However, after 3-4 months of hard use and wear, it finally gave out on me. I tore it open (which I do NOT recommend doing if it still works, a lot of small parts) and a piece of metal in charge of firing the blade had bent, but what can I expect from a 40 dollar knife. I don't recommend getting the black blade, as it scrapes a bit when fired and that finish would wear off easily. The blade also rattles in the handle, but no worse than someone who keeps their keys clipped on a belt. Overall a decent knife for the price, if you want a budget d/a otf this is the one you should get.
Amazing. Great price.

This knife feels very durable in my hand, it doesn't feel cheap, which is awesome. Nice sharp blade. I was able to shave with it. No misfires yet. Shipping was fast.
Will buy more

I really like the Lightning. Mine is the plain blade, not the serrated.

As Bladeplay notes, there were a few spots of finish missing. Who cares? If this was a couple hundred bucks, that is a different story.

The blades fires very hard and fast. Mine has never gone off track. It was reasonably sharp out of the box. A few seconds on the leather belt on my belt grinder and it easily shaves hair off the arm.

I've been using it for EDC until I get a pocket sheath for my Godfather done (I carry keys, etc. in my front right pocket and they will scar up a knife--don't care if they take the finish off the Lightning, DO care if they damage the Godfather).

The one and only complaint I have with the Lightning is the upward blade play. 1/8" as close as I can measure. Downward and side-to-side play is minimal. One would think this could be improved.

So, yes, this knife is well worth the money and I recommend it for those who want a nice OTF and don't have the Benjamins for a Microtech.

The guy's at Bladeplay were great and I got this knife very fast. For the price you cannot believe how nice it is, if you're thinking about getting one stop thinking and get one.
Best OTF for the money

I purchased my first Lighting when they originally came out, and they were selling with a "two for" discount, and I'd still be using it, if I hadn't give it away, but the guy I gave it to "is". I've purchased at least a dozen of these for gifts, and I guarantee you, that everyone of them are loved by their owners! It's my EDC, and will remain so. FYI, I own two Microtech OTFs and the look great on the shelf! LOL!
Surprisingly pleased

This knife is razor sharp out of the box. Fires hard and fast, blade locks tight in and out with no blade play to speak of. No misfires at all.

It has a nice weight to it as well. Being a collector and outdoorsman this is destined to be my new EDC. Thank You Bladeplay

Two years ago I purchased a
Lightning for a good friend of mine. He wanted an OTF, and I told him all the cheap ones were junk. He works in the food service industry ,and I know for a fact that he put his Lighting through the wringer. He lost it recently, and asked me to get a new one for him. I got two. One for him, and one for me. Two years of constant abuse with no problems is a great record in my book. I got him the custom Linos kydex sheath too. I bet he doesn't lose this one. = )
I own 3.
