    i got mine at walmart for $25. i saw it before in a RRA catalog for $70 or $80 so i snatched it up. idk why it was so cheap, but i didn't hesitate or asked questions. it may have been mis marked
    edit: dont let ppl that dont know how to close it handle it, my friends are constantly forcing it closed w/o disengaging the second lock

    I love mine! But it's blade did sustain a good size chip early on. Not too bad because I just resharpened it. Good kick it around knife/utilitiy knife.

    had one and hated it.

    Would not stay sharp and the clip always worked loose even after using loctite on it.

    Because he's talking about the M16-10KZ ($40 MSRP, 3" blade, plastic handles, AUS4 steel 55HRC) and not the M16-14SF (3.8" blade, aluminum handles, AUS8 steel 58HRC).

    I have one of the 10KZ's from wally world that is for EDC, it's a good little knife for the money, but it's not in the same league as one of the CRKT SF models.

    The blade on mine is getting wobbly, not snug in the handle like it used to be.

    They aren't that bad.

    I did a couple things to mine to make it work better, nothing serious though.
