I'd pay more for better quality Rated 3 by Anonymous
I work on power lines and this is the style of knife we typically use. I like that I can take it out of my pocket and flip it open with rubber gloves and sleeves on. However, it's just not tough enough. The metal is soft and can't hold an edge for long when you're skinning wire with it constantly. Also, the clip is flimsy and prone to bending. It's a cheap knife and I get that, but I'd love to have this thing in carbon steel with a better clip. It would be perfect for my job.

Great Knife, Sorry Clip design Rated 4 by Anonymous
I use this knife everyday in powerline construction. The hawkbill is perfect for cutting tape without damaging the wire. The wire belt clip has been my only issue with this knife. The clip tends to get hung up and bent. I finally had to throw the clip away. Great Knife, bad clip design.
