Thumbs up Coast folders at Home Depot holiday sale!

Shocked, I say, shocked!

I heeded ugaarguy's reference to the $10 Coast folders that Home Depot had for sale and got a couple.

Well assembled. Solidly built. Reasonably sharp. Good locks. Entry level blade steel (7Cr13MoV) may be a leetle bit better than or the same as 440A, but for $10 it is money that can't go wrong if they're adequately built.

I cut Leatherman Wings and Sidekicks out of their plastic and sliced up some pasteboard and paper after I stropped off the wire edges from the two picture. They did fine for those mundane tasks push cutting the plastic and slicing the paper an pasteboard. I'll keep using the two and strop from time to time on the back of a legal pad until they start to tear paper and then resharpen.

The liner lock on the fiber reinforced nylon handled DX340 knife is backed up with a secondary LAWKS type lock that keeps it from shifting. A spine whack test on butcher block didn't phase it. The frame lock of the slightly bigger FX416 knife went right to the proper position against the tang of the blade without any over or under travel.

Clips are both deep pocket carry. The steel frame lock is left and right carry capable. The FRN handled knife is carryable on all 4 corners. The steel frame lock is hefty, but not so much as to drag your pants off. The FRN knife is very light, as one would expect where the only steel in the handle is a liner insert on one side and the pocket clip, and you forget it is in your pocket. Both clips carried securely.

I just wiki searched 7cr17 and it appears to be a modified 440A with more vanadium. Sounds interesting.

I think i'll have to pick up at least one for some trials.

I have to go to home depot anyway tomorrow so I guess I will pick a couple of them up for friends/relatives/emergency gifts. No one I am friends with turns down a free knife, even if it is a junk knife.

"...even if it is a junk knife."

I just bought one. It's far from junk. The blade is sharp and the additional lock is a plus. It's a convenient utility knife that carries unobtrusively in a jeans pocket.

Report on the knife I bought today. I took it out and used it to cut some rope, open a package, and scrape a door jamb to install a door lock. So far it is a great buy for the money, and I stand corrected about it being a "junk knife", it is a good inexpensive work knife.

I tried to give my daughter one of the ones I bought because her husband had lost his current EDC but when she saw it was afraid he'd hurt himself!! So I gave her a little stockman I had.

Dang it HSO!!!

Now, I gotta figure out how to go to Home Depot by myself long enough to buy me one of those DX340's for my own self!

But why?
I have no idea, other then you said so.
I certainly don't need one for sure.

But, now I'm compelled to buy one.

I like the light weight, but wish the "liner" was thicker like the frame lock. I also wanted the frame lock to come in a plain edge.

Of the two I "like" the light weight, but what I'll toss in each vehicle and bag and ... is the frame lock.

RC, you got more knives than Carter has liver pills (only old guys will get that one) so what you need another knife for.

Count, that means you just need to buy two more for $7 from Home Depot to give you an average price per unit of $9.33.

I work for Home Depot! But I work at night - we start at closing time and leave just before opening. So it's a PITA for me to buy there, I have to come in early, stay a half-hour after clocking out, or go on my days off.

But I've been eyeballin' those knives too.....

Rondog.
Replete after me.

10 for the display.
1 for me.

10 for the display.
1 for me.


NOO!
That ain't right right there!


But, I had a guy working for me once on the loading dock that would purposely stab a full pallet of Russell-Stover candy for the Xmas shop sale with his fork-lift.

So he could lick his sticky fingers while cleaning up the mess!

He didn't last long after the second time though!

The first time was an accident.
The second time I fired him.

Showed them to the Wife and she said Why do you need another nice ? I smiled the same reason you need another purse. She laughed and said Christmas will be here soon.

My goal in life is to drive past a Home Depot without stopping in. Looks like I'm yet another visit away from said goal.

I got one of those for free from one of my vendors at work. I knew it was a cheap knife but I too was impressed with the quality. No blade wiggle, centered, positive and crisp lockup, easy one handed unlocking and refolding.

Id say it is a winner.
