Coast DX350 Double Lock Folding Knife 3.5-Inch Blade

I’m not a knife collector.  To me a knife is a tool.  Although it does occur to me that I do have a couple of collectible knives so maybe I am a collector.  Hmm, who knew?  I got the Smith & Wesson CH0016 Bullseye Folding Linerlock last September and it has been a work horse.  It was about a third of the price of this knife and I find it easier to open one handed than this knife.  With that said, this still seems like a nice quality knife.  The double lock feature makes sense for a hard working knife.  I’m quite fond of my fingers.  The deeply textured handle provides a secure grip.  I do find one handed opening on this somewhat problematic.  Perhaps I have a wimpy thumb.   The clip is placed very near the top which allows the knife to be positioned deeper in the pocket.  I like that feature, the S&W knife’s clip allows entirely too much sticking out and thus it tends to catch on things.  Overall, a good quality blade with solid features. 

·  7Cr17 stainless steel blade

·  G10 handle on stainless steel frame

·  3.5 in. blade; 8.25in. overall

·  5.0 oz. weight

·  Deep-carry, 3-position pocket clip

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
