I purchased this with the original purpose of using it as a stop gap between the paring knife and the chief knife. It has fulfilled the purpose, though it was designed for outdoor use and not in the kitchen. It has proven durable however by virtue of its design it should not be used to pry open things, those tasks are better left to its fixed blade siblings. Care must be taken while cleaning, it's surface is scored with crevasses and pit marks which will compromise on hygiene if not sterilized properly. Overall a good balanced knife for cooking and the occasional bush clearing; it should not be used to chop wood as the mechanism may fail.
When these folding knives are closed its sharp edge gets connected to the inner cavity when the portion of the sharpness is damaged. This shouldnt happen and there must be something in folding knife which stops the blade from contacting the metal in the body of the knife's cavity. And please note that this problem is with all the folding knives...
Thank you for taking time to review Axis Folding Knife.
