    most overrated knife

    Airkat tripwire, I loved how nasty it looked but upon purchasing for $700.00 found out it was completely impractical. The blade scratched easily and it was a beast to carry. Great for a collector just not for edc.

    Inb4 fanboys from other forums come over to bring up the mandatory "break-in" period.

    But yeah, my Emersons just have the worst actions out of all the folders I've owned.

    Becker. IMO they are just cheaply produced 1095 knives. They skip the finishing process by coating them with bed liner. Clamp plastic handles on with Allen bolts and stuff them in a crappy cloth sheath.

    Medfords. IMHO all but the Praetorian G are ugly as shit and when you have to cycle a knife open and closed thousands of times to get it smooth then it should have been done at the factory or considered a flaw. And all the super sharp corners on where you're supposed to put your thumb is asinine also. The Gs look cool though..

    I may get some guff on this one, but I haven't carried a single spyderco that I especially loved but then again I only really tried maybe 3 of them.

    I don't expect much from the cheap quality of knives from china. You get what you pay for. However I was disappointed with my Microtech OTF knife and will never own another.

    Chris Reeve Sebenza

    I agree that the Chris Reeve Sebenza knives are over rated and over priced. They have beautiful, functional blades. The workmanship is perfect. The titanium handles are ugly. The pocket clips are too small and tight for wearing with thick pockets such as in jeans. I wish the blades had spring assisted opening or lever action. I own both the large and small versions, but rarely carry them.
