5.0 out of 5 stars
Great little knife......, 30 Jan 2013
First of all the description is a bit ambiguous stating that the handle material is FRN and further into the tech specs that it is aluminium so I didn't know which version to expect (they make both types).
The version that was shipped to me is the aluminium version, no complaints about that but the FRN version was going to get a dose of the Dremel, the aluminium won't look as good.
That brings me to the scales, the anodising is a very good job and the scales are machined out to take the stainless steel part liners for the lanyard bail and the lock and pivot. They are assembled together with the FRN back spacer using good old hex screws not the Torx screws common on most knives, so you can adjust or take apart for cleaning with allen keys.
EDIT - The hex screws are 2.0mm for the pivot and 1.5 for the scales.
I didn't have any that small so I ordered this set Draper 14125 8-Piece Metric Hexagon Key Set
which includes the correct sizes.
The lock is a copy of the Benchmade Axis lock and very good it is too, the lock up is solid with no blade play side to side or up and down.
The blade is as sharp as any that I've had from any factory, including the likes of Cold Steel, Spyderco etc.
The blade steel is 8Cr13MoV popular with Spyderco on their Chinese made knives. It is a smallish blade but the deep hollow grind with loads of belly mean that it cuts exceptionally well.
Most folding knives that I buy need a bit of tinkering to get them just right but this one is outstanding in not needing anything done to it.
The value for money is huge on this knife, slap a Benchmade or Spyderco name on it and you'd be paying well over £50 for it.
The last four knives that I've bought have been 2 Enlan/Bee and 2 SanRenMu. I could see this trend continuing. :)
This isn't a large knife but it is a very good small cutting tool.
