Great knife
Casey I.
I have owned this knife for a long time now. Anyone who has anything bad to say about it is a moron (Dennis). Give it good care, and it will serve you well. A knife is a tool, and you must treat it as such, oil it, sharpen it, keep it clean. Before you talk smack, take the time to know what you're talking about first!
Great EDC

I had one of these before when they still had the unusable and unnecessary safety lever on the back side. I liked it then, though, and carried it faithfully because of the great blade and the one handed opening. I ended up giving it to my cousin because he liked it so much. Time to buy another and I think I'll go again with the same but improved model. Hope it's as great as the first!

BTW, the sheath for these is definitely worth the money. though they only seem to have the desert color right now. I got one anyway because it's a good fit.
Great slicer

The full flat grind makes this knife cut way beyond its size! Highly recommended.
Worst ever
First knife wouldn't open consistently without several firm pushes. It was returned for replacement. The 2nd knife's operation wasn't any better than the first one I received. Bladeplay's rep explanation was that the button needed to be pushed deeply and I should work with it. Yeah right! This is a poorly made automatic knife at best. Neither knife was "razor sharp". Buyer beware.
Blade Play response:
Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having. Have you tried to contact our customer service department yet ( We'd like to help you get this resolved in a timely manner. Thanks -BP
Excellent auto knife

It's difficult for me to give ANYTHING 5 starts of perfection but this piece is close. Have owned it for a year and has opened upon pressing the black button without issue, fast and without thought. The blade was sharp when I first tested the knife but I could perform surgery with it since I've done due diligence sharpening it to a razor blade edge. If I had to knock it for anything, that would be the blades thickness, could have used another 0.5-0.75mm of thickness to provide any of my concerns with fracture. This is not a self defense weapon but I carry it daily and feel confident that just the wicked click upon opening will have anyone thinking they could grab my cell or cash will be thinking twice, especially when pulling back a bloody stub, jus' sayin'.
Best knife I own

EDC, AUS8 keeps it's edge wonderfully. Nearly no maintenance, I do tighten the set screws occasionally. Best bang for the buck - get one!
Totally Wonderful Knife.
Robert R.
I just had to have this for my collection. I don't want it as an EDC but it covers all the criteria for an EDC. Fast, smooth and sharp. Nice weight and fits nicely in my pocket and is very light. As with any of my knives I always put a few drops of "liquid bering" oil and the action and pivot. The only flaw I can see is in the release button. Not a smooth action, tends to hang slightly causing to blade to "creep" out of the handle for about 1-2mm. Not a big deal when fast deploying this blade, but can be a flaw when showing the dudes your new toy. Overall, I love this and will keep it with me always.
Awesome deal, great knife!!
Chris A.
This is a must have!! I got mines in and I'm %100 satisfied, razor sharp out of the box, sturdy, fires right open like it supposed to, no problems what so ever, yes I highly recommend getting this knife, great to add to your collection, feels nice in the hand and I'm happy to have this knife, I say get one before they sell out, great for the price and free shipping that's the best of bladeplay, no complaints here.
