Great knife, takes and holds an excellent edge. Knife can open if carried in your left pocket without the lock on. If this should happen it will also open up your pocket. It is no problem to get used to using the incorporated lock and I don't even think about it any more. This is a great well built solid knife. Love it. Pros: Great Knife. Made in USA. Cons: Make sure to use the lock if carried in your left pocket. otherwise, none.

For the money, I was very pleased with this knife. The safety catch could be a little easier to operate but the blade opens easy and strongly. It is a little thick for me for carrying but OK. I like my Kershaw Ken Onion knife better but it cost way more. Like I said, for the money, I love it.r Pros: Opens easy Cons: A little thick

Very happy with this purchase. The knife is identical to my buck "impulse" knife, right down to the pocket clip. Handles well and opens easily. Great sale price and made in the USA. What more could you ask for? Now my son wants one. Pros: Sale priced, assisted opening and very sharp Cons: Limited to one knife at sale price, prefer black over blue

Browing 335 is similar to my Rush folding knife by Buck only better. Better pricing (I got on a promotion from this site), better looks, better blade shape (Buck lacks a curved belly). They both feature a locking cam at the top to prevent the blade from opening at an un-planned time. A few things I wish the Browning 355 had differently: - The blade is 440 stainless, wish it was something a little higher quality to keep its edge a little longer. (Buck is 290) - Wish the blade had a smooth finish, feels like it was milled (same as the Buck Rush). I like the blue finish on the outside of the Browning, not a fan of skeletonized frames (Rush). Super sharp from the factory. Smooth open/close action with a nice thunk. #1 thing a folding knife must do is lock solidly into place. The Browning 335 does just that and I trust it will stay locked under heavy use.

I purchased this knife to replace a lost pocketknife. It is to large for that use but the value/quality makes it a good purchase. Pros: Excellent Value Cons: Too large to use as a pocket knife

The knife is very well constructed. The action is smooth and quick. I wish it was not as heavy as it is, but that area could only be addressed with Titanium or expensive Aluminum Alloys.

Very nice quality. I could not get over how nice it really is. i bought it to carry but not dont have the heart to because I know it will get scrached! the spring open works really well. the lock however is a bit hard to work at first but i usualy leave it unlocked and have not had any problems with it opening in my pocket. Pros: spring open Cons: lock

There is nothing about a deployment lock in the description or that is visible in the picture. This feature I hate, took some getting used to. Other than the lock it is a good little knife. I got the knife for $35 and at that price it is a great value. There is no way I would buy this knife at $60 or more. Pros: Seems like a sturdy little knife. Made in the USA. Cons: There is a lock on the deployment bar. Takes some getting used to.

I bought this because I've been wanting an assisted knife for a while but didn't want to spend $150. When this went on sale for $28, I thought I'd give it a go and I haven't been disappointed yet. The blade is decent, holds an edge fairly well and sharpens fairly easily. The assisted open is really cool and has a nice lock to prevent accidental opening in your pocket. Pros: Light weight, solid feel, assisted open Cons: None so far

This is my first knife purchase and I am very happy with it. Took it camping and can't even count the number of things I was able to use it for. Not sure how other knives would compare to this one though.

Good knife and amazingly made in USA. The very unique locking mechanism to keep the knife from opening in your pocket is a little hard to get used to but otherwise it is an excellent knife and has an excellent price for a "made in USA" knife. Pros: Good knife and usable Cons: I don't especially like the locking mechanism.

I am writing this review about a year after purchasing this knife. It had been a good knife all that time, the edge it comes with isnt particularly sharp but you can easily put a fine edge on it with a cheap sharpening device. The spring in the knife broke today. Sometimes it would get gummed up and I would just clean the hinge area and oil it, get all the excess oil out, and it would work like brand new. Recently it had been not opening all the way so I went to clean it. I was working my cleaning solvent into the hinge by opening and closing the knife, and all of a sudden the pressure to close the knife went away. Then I noticed I had to actually pull the blade to open it. The spring broke. And since it was the only thing keeping the knife closed, I will now have to use the safety if I ever want to carry it. You can still whip it open if you want to, but it is rather depressing when you dont nail it just right and the blade doesnt make it all the way haha. It is a good budget knife. Worth the money, but this knife is just to get you by until you get a better knife. If that is what youre looking for, just SOMETHING to have until you feel more comfortably buying an expensive knife, this is probably the best you can get. Do not expect to use this knife every day for the rest of your life. Also, the blade metal is not stellar. It is good, but not the best. If you do decide to put a finer edge on it, you will need to spend about 5-10 minutes sharpening it t... Read More...
