So I have been Ho-Humming over Mtech for some years now .
And Trolling Feebay I spied this one ( MT-987 ) going for a decent price with free ship .
WOW ! The seller Express posted it to me , = Thank you !
About the knife ( Initial thoughts )
The blade runs on bushes .. & is a very poor flipper .
In fact the flipper design is so bad I tore my fingernail trying to flip the blade out !
Hmmmm , maybe just use the thumb studs !!!!
Over all , the design is solid / straight / with no slop - play . Locks up well .
I did , dis asseble the knife and tighten the liner lock ... Cos it hardly locks ( indent - blade closed ) , and does not offer enough resistance for flipping ( Indent ) .
So = Locks solid open
But the ball indent does not lock the blade closed nor offer enough resistance for flipping .
The blade / factory edge slices paper well enough .
But there will be no rope slice today as it's windy as , and raining . ( + Super Humid )
As a thumb stud opening knife it works as long as you like the slow roll ..
For $25 bananas to my door , it's ok .
The spine is rounded so wont do anything to your ferrite rod .
If the steel ( blade ) is average , then this might be a worthwhile budget knife .
Just have to wait and see what the rope has to say about that .
