Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Meteor® SOLDIER 440 Pocket knife Belt knife + UP® Sticker (Misc.)
even it is a very lovely design, flip opening mechanism works perfectly and the fine edge is fairly sharp from box
this knife has a lot of downsides,
-serrations need sharpening as they are coated by paint too much and that makes them blunt
-whole knife stinks like old engine oil and is oiled all over, needs to be washed throughout properly, but still stinks a bit
-the painted aluminum handle is very slippery, even more slippery with wet hands, handle design is comfortable in hand, but i wish it would be made from G10 rather than a way too smooth slippery aluminum.
-paint from the handle chips off very easily
-designed by a Polish company, but made in china
-comes in a ugly cheap looking blister pack, not a good gift idea
-these knives cost around 10quid (in GBP) in poland (googled for it while it was unavailable on amazon), way overpriced in uk for the fact that they are cheaply made in china

Other things to note, its a lock knife with a blade over 3" and a non-metallic blade, illegal to carry in public not just in UK since it also is a one hand opening lock knife
it could be a very good knife if the handle would be made from a different material and its overpriced for the quality you get.
plus i have no idea what the UP® sticker is about and good for

If you are looking for a good lock knife for a reasonable price and good quality better look for US made knives like the Buck or other makes (many good online outdoor shops have a very good choice of US knives)

Update 24/6/2014: Most useless knife i ever had, unreliable thin blade snapped on its first camping on basic tasks for which a simple pocket swiss army knife is made for, just took the meteor with me to test it and it failed completely.
better stay away from Meteor junk, if it wouldn't have a sharp pointy tip it could be in a toy section because everything else is blunt and flimsy like a cheap made in china toy.
If you want a good quality lock knife for a good price get one of the US made Buck Bantam range knives, for basic camping just get a swiss army knife instead
