First Lets Go Over the Pros + Design is Beautiful Now the Cons - Rubber Coating Comes Off in Days - Blade Doesn't Come Sharp, Sharpen Well, Hold and Edge - Blade So Off-center (On Mine) That After About a Month in I Started to Notice Hefty Scratches on the Blade From it - Glass Breaker and Seat Belt Cutter a Gimmick... Would Rather Use My Fists and Teeth in an Emergency Situation - Miles of Blade Play at This Point - Inside of Handle Rusts Bad (despite being used indoors mostly) - Have Seen Better $4 Knives -Serrations bend and chip easy -7Cr17MoV Steel (When this is heat treated properly, its usable... But definitely not on the product I received) -At this point, the lock-up is so weak, it can be legally considered a gravity knife In conclusion, don't be like me. I have carried this knife for about 1 1/2 years just to see if it can hold up to EDC tasks. IT DID NOT I could not shave paper, cut cardboard, dress small game, cut decently thick string or any other not so demanding task I could think of from the point when I got it until up to even now. DO NOT BUY THIS It is simply put, a cheap, CHEAP Chinese knife with S&W's name on it... Shame on you for branding this S&W... SHAME ON YOU. And heart to heart, I was gifted a [$4] knife from Walmart, and that quickly replaced this as an EDC. For God's sake the Ontario Rat 2 is the same price... I suggest buying a Cold Steel folder in 4116 Krupp for $5 more, or getting a Kizer Vanguard series knife in VG-10 for $20 more. NEVER buy a knife branded by a gun company (Except Ruger Knives which are produced by CRKT with the same quality you would expect from them).

Not a comfortable knife to hold, it hits the side of the knife when closed, the window breaker/belt cutter was loose the day I got it out of the box, but it's still usable, kind of what you'd expect at the price point.

Fantastic folding utility knife. I'm a chef and I probably use this tool more than any other. It's tough, versatile and it keeps a decent edge. Highly recommended for everyday use.

It's light, sturdy and very handy! I've already put it to some hard work and it has yet to fail me. I think it will out last many of my other knives. I didn't think I would be using the razor hook on the handle but, it has become one of my favorite things about the knife.

This is my second S&W Extreme Ops knife. The first one was much easier to open with one hand, this one is stiff and difficult to open with a flick of the finger. I oiled it but it still takes two hands. As a result its doesn't fit my needs as the first one did.

Knife is perfect for law enforcement, the glass break and belt cutter are perfectly designed. Both features are fully functional yet don't interfere with normal use of the knife itself.

I love this knife, so far. My previous knife fell apart in my pocket, so i replaced it with this one. It too was a Smith & Wesson with the same locking mechanism that holds the blade together, so we will see what happens. Be mindful of that "star shaped screw" at the top of the knife, just in case you have problems.

My boyfriend liked it. Very sharp. He accidentally dropped it on my foot and it left a deep gash. So it's definitely sharp. Good for the price, I'm very satisfied.

Excellent knife in every way. Great rubber grip, very nice blade, has the belt cutter and the metal "knob" at the butt of the knife for shattering a window if necessary in a situation that calls for it or for possible less damaging self defense. Feels comfortable in your hands, great to use, no regrets at all with this purchase.

The blade was dull when I bought it. The blade was sharpened only to the extent of having a pointed edge, but was not sharpened enough. I would expect more. Otherwise the blade is great.

I have been buying and making knives for a lot of yrs and this tanto is a well put together and sturdy knife. It is light and the rubber handle makes it easy to handle, especially in a cold environment. I make it a habit to carry one everywhere I go and everyday, there will always be a time that you will need one, and thankful that you had this one on your personal..

I bought this knife since I seriously needed a new knife that has a decent locking mechanism, better blade, and can be more useful if I get into a car accident and need to break some glass/cut my seat belt. This knife has proven to be the best knife I've ever purchased.

I have found the Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops Pocket Knife is exactly what I needed. The blade cuts well and the seat-belt cutter work well also. I know the seat-belt cutter works well because I tried it out on and old junk car seat-belt. I have not tried to break any glass. The clip works well as I have clipped the knife on my car's seat belt for easy access in case it is needed quickly and it is not in the glove box.

Knife seems well made but the belt clip lasted about 2 hours until the screws stripped out or pulled out. The screws just don't seem heave enough for the weight of the knife.

It was sharp out of the box, cut a small sliver off a piece of cardstock first try. However the only bad thing I have to say is it was a little tight and hard to flick open, and after not too many times of opening it the frame lock filed away the butt of the knife which made it so the frame lock doesn't stop in the middle of the butt of the knife, it goes all the way to the other side, which looks bad and like it may allow the knife to close slightly.

I purchased a couple of these knives to keep in my vehicles in case I ever had to cut off a seat belt or smash out a window. In other words, I hope to never need to use them. The serrated blade and the metal bashing tip should do the job
