New urban camo rescue knife
 
I love the look of this knife so I had to get it.

It's Mtech TAC-FORCE with glass breaker and seatbelt cutter.

What did that set you back?

Is that a folder?

Ten dollar knife. Tell me how long it last. I've had less then stellar experiences with knives like that.

Unfortunately only 1 review on there and its 2 stars and says knife broke the first day. They do say they have experience with the company and usually have better results.

All of the convenience stores and truck stops around here sell those Mtech knives

I just went and read the review. I don't think that guy knows what he's talking about. This knife doesn't have a "spring". You have to give it a flick of your wrist like anybody with experience with folders knows how to do.

I've had this new one carried for a week and still good as new. If you have low expectations for a $10 knife, then I think your expectations will be greatly exceeded.

Mtech is a cheaper-end brand name, but I have a karambit Mtech rescue that I've carried for months and it has stood up perfect. Really, I got this new one mainly because of the look of the urban camo blade. The karambit is smaller and lighter to carry, so it still may get more duty time. The newness factor hasn't worn off yet though on the new urban and I'm enjoying it!

Btw, I just reviewed on Amazon and gave it 4 stars. Go read. :)

I look forward to further reports on it. Obviously I wouldn't expect much from a $10 knife but sometimes you find a diamond in the rough.

It seemed like this was longer ago that I got this., but the date says July.

So, 2.5 months of everyday carry and this knife still rocks. It's built like a tank too with a thick metal handle. From being in my pocket so much I expected to see some wear too, but I don't see any. Blow the "lint" off and it still looks like brand new and awesome. :D
