    This knife can take a beating
    January 4, 2016
    Finally got a chance to test this knife out on a dead Acacia Longifolia tree. It took about three minutes to cut the 1.5 inches in diameter branch. Both sides of the blade with no physical damage at all but the two screws were loosen up. Perhaps some red Loctite would stop it turning.

    Good solid knife
    April 27, 2017
    Picked this up to test out, thinking I might buy some more to give as gifts. So far it has held up pretty good with everything I've tried.
    Pros:
    Seems to be very well constructed. For the price you just can't go wrong.
    Cons:
    None so far - perhaps a better sheath would be the first thing I would look into. I'd like to see how it holds up to a summer of hiking/camping.

    Hell of a knife for $15!
    April 7, 2017
    It's a serious looking knife with a decent sheath. It can point out things I'd change but it comes back to $15!

    Great Knife

    Relatively heavy duty knife is well made. Comfortable handle and well constructed sheath. Really like the size of the knife. Perfect for camping and hiking. Holds an edge well.

    Light weight, very sharp tactical fighting knife
    February 16, 2017
    I had been looking for a light weight tactical knife to add to my equipment and I found it here. The knife is very sharp out the box and is a single piece full tang construction that is thick enough to hold body mass in the event of a stab and lift action. The textured handle holds up well when wet and is well constructed. I liked this blade so much I got one for each of my sons one of which is a Law Enforcement Office and one a Naval Petty Officer.
    Pros:
    Weight Strength Sharpness Cost
    Cons:
    The sheath is single stitch construction and mine started to unravel after only a draw drills, easily fixed with heavy duty nylon thread and liquid stitch.

    February 11, 2017
    I would give it 4 stars, but the sheeth needs to be attachable to my plate carrier. Otherwise, great knife for the price.
    Pros:
    Good knife
    Cons:
    Needs better sheeth

    Great Life for the Price, Could Have Been a GREAT Knife
    January 3, 2017
    The blade for $15 (give or take) is a heckuva bargain. Solid construction, and, so far as I can tell, decent materials and workmanship. Solid blade geometry and the knife feels natural and comfortable in the hand. The exposed pommel at the back is perfect for a lanyard/wrist loop, breaking glass, and hammering if needed. Haven't put it through any paces yet, so I cannot speak to the heat treat, edge holding, and all the things you probably REALLY want to know about. It DID arrive shaving sharp, though I don't know how long it will last. If I remember to do it someday, I will update--especially if it fails or in any other way doesn't warrant at least 4 out of 5 stars. I am not expecting $500 performance from a $15 blade, but if it has a solid heat treat, it SHOULD provide $50-80 performance. May be asking for a lot, from a blade with G-10 scales already under $20, but if you have a good heat treat protocol in place with good QC, there's no reason this cannot perform like a knife far above its weight class. From my understanding, the Chinese Cr series is right about in line with 440 or AUS series--solid stainless that isn't a beast to get right. Besides... ...I DID do a lot of cutting yesterday with the LAPG TBFK S35V super steel folder they make--boxes and about 3.5' of heavy elastic doubled over (2" loops off of a minitrampoline) where I kept whacking the steel frame, and assorted other stuff and it worked just fine--still shaving sharp, no chips. I was worried, given the "made in China" logo, but was pleasantly surprised. Why raise this in the Rendition review? The Rendition uses a FAR, FAR easier steel to work with than the TBFK. With any powdered metallurgy super steel like S35VN (see note at the bottom), screw up the heat treat, and you may as well have used any 440A or B stainless, or maybe some nonsensical generic "surgical stainless steel," the "Velveeta" of the cutlery world. I have NO idea if the TBFK's heat treat protocols were sufficient to MAXIMIZE the steel's performance, but it did give me better performance than an AUS-8 Bladetec I carry, my Buck 110 in 440C with Bos heat treat, or any of the Kershaw Chinese steel blades made of the same stuff as the Rendition that I toss I a pocket or two (Kershaw's QC is pretty good I've found). The Rendition uses a mid-grade stainless steel developed IN China in line with 440C or AUS8, so HOPEFULLY, it's likewise got a decent heat treat, given the national origin of the blade and the job LA Police Gear seems to have done in working out the protocols IN China for the US-made powder metallurgy steel (which I ASSUME they did--it would be dangerous and a waste of money to do the heat treat HERE and then ship heat treated bar stock for their Chinese plant to grind--the second they start grinding, the heat generated would undo the heat treat's magic and give wildly unpredictable results). THAT SAID, there are a few drawbacks that keep the Rendition from earning that extra star (and I AM being harsh and picky). 1) The jimping is TOO FAR FORWARD on the blade to be of optimal use. It's only helpful if you SERIOUSLY choke up on the blade. It's not BAD jimping--I actually found it perfectly aggressive without being too sharp (something I rarely come across). Just wish it was either CLOSER to the handle, or that it extended FURTHER toward the handle (the preference). 2) The grips needed to be hit with sandpaper at the end where you grab hold in order for it to not rub, wear, or cut into your skin. Not a big deal, but annoying to have to finish the knife when every other detail was great. 3) The sheath just sucks. Can't get around it. A Kydex sheath WOULDN'T be too pricey (just MAKE SURE the rivets are spaced for a TekLok). Just a simple sheath and leave as is or add a simple kydex loop--let the end user decide how to carry (lash with Paracord, buy a $10-12 TekLok, ranger band, etc.). As is, while SERVICEABLE, it gives the feeling it will fall apart with any prolonged carry or constant opening and closing the snap. Not a problem for me since in will live in a "get home bag"/backup, backup hunting blade in the car. I KNOW corners had to be cut SOMEWHERE, but there ARE better options for the price or maybe a dollar or two extra--that would be a dollar or two well spent. As an aside, check out the LAPG TBFK folder if you get the chance. CPM S35VN--one of THE finest blade steels available on the market, made by Crucible Metallurgy. The P="powder" for the specialized process Crucible pioneered used to creates uniform microscopic carbides that aid in making the steel do everything you want a blade steel to do (most major metallurgy companies now make a line of powdered steels to try and compete). "S" IS for "stainless;" "V" IS for "vanadium" and "N" is for "niobium," which apparently makes it a heck of a lot easier to sharpen than the granddaddy of powdered metals, S30V--still regarded as one of the finest knife steels ever invented. LAPG, IF YOU ARE READING THIS, PLEASE MAKE A LINE OF S35VN TACTICAL AND HUNTING BLADES!!! GIVE US A 2" NECK KNIFE, 3" KARAMBIT, 4" DROP POINT, TANTO, CLIP POINT, AND SWAYBACK, MAKE 5" AND 6" DROP AND CLIP POINTS, AND ROUND IT OUT WITH A WELL-TREATED S-7 TOOL STEEL 9-12" BLADE!!! PERFECT THE CRYOGENIC HEAT TREAT PROTOCOLS AND BRING THEM TO MARKET AT $15 FOR THE NECK, $30-$60 WITH A KYDEX SHEATH FOR THE OTHERS, AND MAYBE $80-90 FOR THE BIG ONE AND YOU WILL CORNER THE MARKET ON ALL TACTICAL AND HUNTING KNIVES :)
    Pros:
    SOLID KNIFE GOOD MATERIALS FOR THE BLADE AND GRIPS; SHOULD PROVIDE DECADES OF SERVICE (DEPENDING ON HOW CRAZY YOU ARE WITH IT). GOOD DESIGN; GOOD ERGONOMICS--WELL SUITED FOR CUTTING, SLICING, STABBING, PRYING. EXPOSED POMMEL USEFUL FOR GLASS BREAKER, OR FOR HAMMERING IN A PINCH GREAT BLADE GEOMETRY--WELL THOUGHT OUT AND EXECUTED; CAME RAZOR SHARP, EVENLY SHARPENED, AND READY TO WORK!
    Cons:
    THE SHEATH WON'T GIVE YOU NEARLY THE YEARS OF SERVICE THE KNIFE WILL THE JIMPING IS TOO FAR FORWARD ON THE TOP OF THE BLADE FOR MOST PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS THE G-10 SCALES NEED TO BE HIT WITH SANDPAPER IN ORDER TO AVOID HURTING YOURSELF.

    Perfect Utility Knife
    December 21, 2016
    I have been very impressed with this knife since buying one. It's not too long, or too heavy, but it's durable enough for tough jobs. The Rendition looks good and feels good. The G10 handles are fantastic and the full tang blade is sharp enough for most jobs. The gun metal gray coating should keep the knife corrosion free even in outdoor work. The pommel works good for small striking jobs, and the sheath is simple but effective. This is not a Benchmade or Emerson knife so don't set unrealistic comparisons. However, for $15 it would be hard to find a better utility knife you don't mind tackling tough jobs or getting scuffed up. It is fairly well balanced too. I gave one away for a Christmas party and the Rendition caught the eye of everyone in attendance.
    Pros:
    Great G10 handles, and good balance. Full tang blade. Sharp and hard enough blade for most jobs, including hammering or striking with the pommel. Feels good in the hand. Great price.
    Cons:
    Blade quality (duration, sharpness), and sheath is simplistic - a Kydex sheath would have been much better.

    Good looking knife great price.
    December 14, 2016
    Purchased this for a fixed blade knife with a sheath. It's a good looking knife with great grips. Not the most "polished" looking knife but for the price you can't beat it. The sheath looks durable.
    Pros:
    Price. Good grips. Sharp. Good sheath.
    Cons:
    No hand guard.
