FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

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.
