The meeting of science fiction and knife tech in an excellently crafted blade, the Viper OTF looks like a design from the future. The tanto blade is made of AUS-8 high carbon stainless steel with a black finish. The futuristic handle is crafted from black aluminum so it's lightweight and easy to manage. To open the blade, switch off the safety lock and press the sliding release forward. The knife opens fast and smoothly, and the lock up is tight. To close the blade, push the small blade release button forward, the slide the blade back with the bottom actuator until it locks into place. The pommel of this knife features a small glass breaker tip and a removable, tip-down carry pocket clip.

Good budget OTF
Scott B.
Schrade's Chinese knives are better than others of this type. It's not the world's best EDC knife but it can serve in this capacity. Their AUS-8 steel is of good mid-grade quality. The steel holds a decent edge, but will require sharpening more frequently than 440C .

A Tanto grind isn't a great "working" grind, yet it can perform reasonably well for daily cutting tasks.

Remember: This knife will require frequent cleaning if carried regularly. (Pocket lint collects in the blade over a short period of time and compressed air will help remove it).

Don't wave this knife around, because Law Enforcement will see it as a threat and take it from you. Be discreet and act responsibly.

This knife is well made, and will work well. Remember to clean and maintain it. The knife is a good value for the money and is not a toy. If you follow the foregoing rules, it will serve you well.
