So what kind of knife does a relatively inexpensive $60 buy you from First Tactical? How about a very high quality D2 steel blade, G10 scales that feel slim but confident in the hand, the incredible First Tactical Thumb Bridge that replaced traditional gimping for exceptional grip and confidence, an excellent pocket clip, a terrific forward choil that makes choking up on the blade for detail work extremely effective, a very reassuring snap when you flick and lock the blade open, steel liner locks that hold the blade very secure, a hole at the end of the handle to attach paracord, really nice construction and… It arrived extremely sharp out of the box. What's not to like? It's a terrific piece of kit and an incredible buy for the asking price.

About the only concerns I could find - and they are minor at most - was that in the beginning the blade exhibited a bit more friction than expected when deploying and it could be a bit cumbersome to activate the liner lock to close. After a few weeks of daily use, however, the deployment of the blade has smoothed out quite nicely and closing is now essentially second nature. The only other concern is that while the recurve portion of the blade is very effective at cutting ropes, zip-ties, paracord, cardboard, etc, it can be a bit tricky to keep sharp compared to a standard-style blade. One hint: do a search online for sharpening a recurve with a coffee mug. You'll be glad you did and you'll find that keeping your Krait sharp will be a snap. One note: The spear-point on the Krait is extremely sharp. Great for puncturing through objects, cutting at the tip, etc., but you'll need to be mindful of this when you open and use it as that spear point is unforgiving. This is not a negative. Just a point worth mentioning.

Ok... so what's the bottom line? I've had the Krait for several months now and it has moved itself up to the top-tier of my knife collection and shares go-to status with some knives that are literally hundreds of dollars more expensive. The Krait is a serious tool and it is an absolute no-brainer must-get for the price. Well done First Tactical!

Outstanding tactical knife, light weight with D2 steel that can be sharpened like a razor. Pocket clip is reversible (great for lefties) comes with tool and extra screws. Highly recommend.
