The meeting of science fiction and knife tech in an excellently crafted blade, the Viper OTF looks like a design from the future. The double-edged partially serrated spear point 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.

Awesome rugged s/a otf!!
Taylor R.
Idk what the guy that posted before me is talking about because this knife is solid, sturdy, rugged, and a killer deal for it's quality. Blade comes razor sharp, lock-up is rigid, the spring is powerful, and the "snap" is so loud it's awesome. I already want another, maybe the serrated tanto one, but the bottom line is unless you're out to break this knife on purpose (kinda sounded like he was lol) it will perform like a champ. This Schrade is badass & can easily compete with $150+ otfs
Get it IF it's all you can get

It's ok. There's little to no bladeplay. The blade is very sharp. The blade fires decently fast. It looks kind of cool. Other than that it feels like a fast food kids meal toy honestly. It feels cheap and not sturdy in the hand. It supposedly has an aluminum handle but it looks and feels like plastic as does everything except the blade. The blade lockup is a load of crap. I don't know if it's just my knife but I've tried pulling the blade back in without pressing the release button, and with a little force it just goes back in.

I've also tried stabbing force tests and a few times the blade just went back into the handle. I understand if you want this knife for carry because you want something that's like an automatic otf but legally you can only carry this, but if you can get automatics then get them instead of this toy.

The people who said Cupid clones are worse than this are wrong. The arrow Cupid clone fires way harder, has a sharper cooler blade, a really solid metal handle and build, and better lockup. The Cupid also has no bladeplay either. I don't mean to bash this schrade viper knife but I feel like it should be more like 20 dollars rather than 40 for the quality. I'll keep it just because it's ok and I'd rather beat this up than an actual good knife.
Best budget OTF I've ever seen

This knife is solid. Nice strong spring also has a solid lockup. No blade play solid lock up. If you can't afford microtech take this knife TRUST ME. The Lightning has play, Cupid clone has play, Titan has play.
