first off I am not going to say this is junk because it was made in china like others. I have had US made junk and good quality from china so want to put that out there up front.
This knife has blades that are almost impossible to open. First try broke a thumb nail, 2nd try got me cut and I have been handling knives for over 40 years and maybe cut myself a few times in all of those years.
The only way to get the blades open are with pliers or using a screw driver as a thumbnail and even then its hard to do. I literally through it in the trash within an hour of getting it. what good is a tool if you need another tool to open it.. pure junk!
its nor worth returning since the seller has re-stocking fees and based on the reviews this is a common issue with this series of knife and not worth paying to send it back to Schrade AKA Taylor products to get a replacement that is probably going to be the same. JUNK JUNK JUNK..
