2 knives have now broken on me
When you first open the knife it is sharp as ever but I have literally used it for about a week and the tip snapped off from cutting a rope

Good knife, but not very durable.
I have two of these, and they are good general purpose pocket knife. However the tip has already broken off of one after just a few months use.

Knife Won't Close - Dewalt Won't Respond
Once open, the blade won't close. No instructions included about closing the blade. Inability to close blade makes this a dangerous product - especially if there are children in the home. has not respond to my request (email) for assistance. Will return this defective, dangerous product and shop for another knife from a more reliable vendor who better supports their products.

Perfect Size
This was purchased as a gift, it is exactly what I was hoping for! It is small enough to carry but large enough to get all of my jobs done.

Don't waste your money
Got this since it was a dealt product. There was a Milwaukee knife like it right next to it, should have got that one. I have not used it that much and the first thing I noticed was that the blade was getting loose. I tried to tighten it up with the nut on the outside but that only lasted a day or no. Now the blade just wobbles around and you have to move it to the side so it will close correctly. I am afraid to use it for fear it will break and cut me.

Nice knife for the price
After reading reviews on Amazon, I ordered it. It is sturdy enough for everyday use. I would not pry too heavily with it though. The tanto tip takes some getting used to, but its growing on me. It feels good in my small hand. The only thing I would change on it is to give it spring assist when opening to make it easier to deploy with one hand. For the price, buy it! If I lost mine, I would replace it!

Can you illustrate how the knife closes? I'm aware of the tab on the handle. Pushing it seems to do nothing. The blade can't be moved from the open position. Is there a multiple operation that needs to be performed to close the blade involving pushing the tab and blade at the same time? I've tried various combinations and can't budge the blade.

I have one of these pocket knives, however, I have no receipt or other proof of ownership. It is a very good knife, tough as nails, holds an edge well too. My problem is the pocket/belt clip snapped off at the screws and I would like to fix it. Can you help me?
Thank you,
