I love the look of this knife so I had to get it.



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

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.

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

If that stripe design on the blade is what you like and want quality then go for the Zero Tolerance 302 open assist. It'll chop a tree branch down.

I find that knives like these have come a long way

in quality, since I was younger.

IMO, they soak up a lot of abuse,

so your good knife will be ready,

when you need it...

I came across this camo pattern the other day researching all the blades currently used by special forces...



That one is issued to "DET 1" which is the Marine Corps elite Special Operations. It's manufactured by Strider and has a titanium handle.

some zero tolerance knives are ken onion designs. Others come from various other designers. By the way... Zero Tolerance is Kershaw and not Strider.
