@Review Blackhawk BHB30 Assisted Opening Tactical Folding Knife w/ 3.25in Blade Rating Review

The BlackHawk Model BHB30 Tactical Folding Knife 153001SL is one of their most reliable assisted opening knives available on today's market. When the 440C stainless steel blade on this Folding Knife by Blackhawk Tactical is opened to 30 degrees, a powerful spring does the rest of the work with minimal effort. The 420J stainless steel liner-lock locking mechanism on the Black Hawk BHB30 Spring Assisted Folding Knife secures the blade in place. The tiger-striped handle grip on this BlackHawk Knife is designed to provide an secure, non-slip grip. The Black-Hawk 8.125in Folding BHB30 Knife is made with a pocket clip that allows left/right and tip up/tip down carrying styles to fit your personal preference.

This is a well-built tactical knife made in the USA. The 440C SS blade snaps open and locks solid in the position with no play. It is such a light weight knife for the size that you will forget it's even there in your pocket. The clip is secured to the Zytel handle with two screws and it can be set in four different positions for Right or Left hand and for tip-up or tip-down carry mode. There are three minor complaints: 1) The knife is a bit too large for EDC, and the way it opens gives appearance of a switch blade to laypersons, thus it may not be a politically correct EDC knife for many civilians in ordinary work places; 2) the liner bar is somewhat difficult to operate to release the lock; and 3) even the street price is still steep for the blade steel of 440C. For the price, I would like to have the blade made of 154CM, ATS-34 or similar premium stainless tool steel.
