Yeah, I picked up two for stocking stuffers a couple years ago. The firesteel is nice, but the blade is a crappy liner lock...not very well aligned. It's not bad for a kit, but I wouldn't rely on the blade for more than opening mail and boxes.

Good to know, thanks!

Anyone know if they might have changed the locking mechanism inbetween the first and second generations of these knives? I've noticed they made a few changes to the blade itself. Just wondering if that might explain the differences in experiences with this knife?

I'm kinda just looking for a beater knife. One that I'm not going to shed tears over if I lose it out in the bush.

Disregard my last...

I finally had a chance to get my hands on one of these, and mess around with it. I agree, the locking mechanism is crap!
