I go into Wal Mart occasionally , and I always walk thru the sporting goods section , sometimes the hardware section. I will always check out the knives , you can never have to many knives. I'm Pretty rough on them , working , cutting and carving stuff . So I don't buy the really expensive ones , not that Wal Mart has the good ones anyway. So , looking the other day , I stepped it up a bit and bought a Buck , 293 , assisted opening. Never really had an assisted opening knife that I can remember. It has a belt clip , but it's on the butt of the knife instead of the blades pivot end , which is weird to me . That was a first as well. Carried the knife for 3 days , barely used it at all . Now the assisted opening , can only be opened with 2 hands. It's like the blade alignment is off centered now , so the blade is pressed tight against on side of the frame. It also has a safety lock on the backside that is unusual , not really convenient for one handed use . I paid about 40 bucks for it , Buck list them on their site for 60. I got on their site to look at warranty , they will fix or repair it , but I'll have to print off a piece of paper and ship it to them . So for what it's worth , I wouldn't buy one again. But , it may be to early to tell . But last night I bought a Kershaw 1306BW , assisted opening knife last night for 14 bucks , plus tax. The opening is stronger than the Buck was , and it's an all metal knife , frame and all , no plastic , bone , etc , handgrips. Which I can see the only downfall being if you have sweaty hands, But the a file scoring some grooves in the handles , or some rough grit sand paper could help. I use my knives for work , and functionality , not show , so scuffs don't bother me. Any way , just for what it's worth.
