Great Knife

I have had this knife for almost a year. It's been used and abused and works perfectly still to this day. This isn't really the style of knife I would normally purchase but I love it. It was part of the KOTMC and I couldn't be happier. Fits nicely and comfortably in my hand and opens quickly with the stud. All around winner.

One Major Flaw

This knife, although well built, has one major flaw in it`s application as a self defense knife. The thumb stud used for assisted opening sits flush with the outside casing, making it very difficult to engage. I`ve had to make several swipes at it to before the blade will open. Do not recommend it if you`re looking for a self defense knife.

I love the ease of opening this thing!

So far I love it. seems to hold an edge pretty ok. But yeah baby, does it come out smooth. No need for this one to be assisted. thumb stud is flush, but doesnt really require it with a good wrist flick its out. it is seriously smooth & easy to get open. did I mention that?

Shinwa Red Tsuka Pocket Knife

The action is smooth. It locks secure. The handle feels great. The edge stands up to the Shinwa reputation. Time will tell durability and how well it holds an edge. But for the price, you can't beat it.

Ok,but could be a lot better

The thumb stud needs to be longer . Also , my handle is faded and washed out looking.

Nice KotM surprise

I would have never looked at this knife twice in a catalog, it's not my standard fare. It fits my hand very comfortably, the belt clip isn't even noticed when held, and my grip feels like it won't budge. The mechanism is smooth and precise, very nice quality. Standard new-knife edge. Still new, so I don't know how well it will hold up, but it gives me a great deal of confidence that it's pretty solid - especially for the price.

Gorgeous knife with a sharp blade

Very well built.

I got this for my KOTMC subscription and couldn't be happier. It is a perfect knife for everyday carry, extremely functional and task adept. It is easily worth more than the asking price. My only hang up is that I hate pocket clips and prefer Sheaths, not BUCK's fault. Thumbs up and a raised glass for this knife... Sincerely, Jeff Szymecki Erie, PA

Worth twice as much!

Excellent knife for the price! It has a nice weight and balance, and the g10 scales are very comfortable. The thumb stud could stand to be a little longer but other than that this knife feels incredible in the hand and has a very smooth operation. The steel hones to a fine edge and the edge retention really isn't all that bad. Of course, you will get much better retention from a high carbon steel, but it is still a relatively low maintenance edge compared to other knives in the same price range and even some higher valued knives. There was zero play in the blade which is very surprising for a cheap knife, and the ball bearings allow for a tight fit with out compromising the knifes ability to open fast and smooth. 19/10 on this knife. Shinwa did a fantastic job creating a quality knife for a very low price. My new favorite EDC, and if you are not a fan of the color scheme it is set up in a way that you could have custom scales put on if you so desired since it is only offered in one color scheme. I hope they offer this knife in the future with some slight changes such as a flipper on the back, or a longer thumb stud, and some different color options.
