    Excellent knife for all occasions

    I bought two Nightshades in September, a grey one for myself and a black one as a Christmas present for my dad. We have both been extremely impressed with the knives, and, given that he spent the better part of the 80's helping run a knife store, he doesn't impress easily. I normally tend to change my carry knife based on what I'm wearing but the Nightshade is all I've carried since I got it and I've found it to be as comfortable in jeans working around the house as I have in a suit going to a wedding. The only complaint I have is that I want to get myself the black flipper version as well but it stays out of stock - please bring it back soon!

    Awesome little knife, great blade shape

    I’m not someone impressed by the packaging and aesthetics of my knives, they’re tools and I use them like it. I’m loving the Nightshade Lt. It comes shaving-sharp, with a buttery smooth action. The shape of the stud and quality of the action make it deploy really snappily for a non-spring assisted blade. The way the blade indexes forward makes it so that cutting keeps your wrist at a more neutral angle than a straight blade. I haven’t resharpened it yet, but I specifically picked an outwardly curving blade so that it would be easy to sharpen on my KME, and I don’t anticipate issues. Would be nice if the pocket clip was reversible for tip-down carry but that’s not a huge deal. Overall, great little knife and a great price for what you get.
