This Bolt OTF knife is the budget version of the Lightning OTF automatic. Unlike the Taiwan-made Lightning, the Bolt is made in China. The quality is not on par with the Lightning, but the Bolt comes in at a commensurately lower price making it one of the most budget-friendly OTF knives around. One improvement over the Lighting is a sturdier 3-screw pocket clip made from black finished stainless steel.

The automatic blade is fired and retracted with a side mounted actuating button. The Bolt does not require a safety mechanism due to the considerable force required to fire the knife. Its blade is made from satin finished stainless steel. The handle is slightly textured and features a durable faux carbon fiber coating.

Disclaimer: The blade on the Bolt will come "off track" more often than higher priced OTF's – carefully pull the blade out to reset blade. Adding oil to the knife will help prevent this issue. Minor paint chips and cosmetic issues may also be present from shipping.

Soft 4 star after some work, love it for the money

Deployment requires more force than you would expect, but this is a good thing in my book. Retracting the blade, for me requires two hands, or the use of a hard surface as leverage. This is unusual.

The blade is sharp out of the box, and well oiled. The Carbon fiber finish looks great. The grips around the case of this OTF are just enough to get a good grip on. Only real flaw is the stiffness of deployment and retraction.

EDIT: I dis-assembled the knife, removed one of the springs, and now it operates just like the other OTF's you see, one handed operation is a cinch now. to understand the context of this edit, read my original review below.
Great knife for the money.

Bought this for a Christmas gift. It fires hard and hasn't come off-track yet. Perhaps doesn't feel quite as solid as my Lightning, but it isn't bad. The blade seems durable and is of reasonable sharpness out of the box. Just like the Lightning, though, it does have about an eighth of an inch of upward blade play. Side to side and downward play are minimal. Just the nature of the beast, I guess.

The faux carbon fiber finish looks nice and was w/o flaws out of the box (unlike my Lightning).

It's not a Microtech, but it's not a couple hundred bucks, either. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this knife if you want an inexpensive OTF to mess around with.
