There is nothing revolutionary or novel about the model 842 knife, and it would be easy to be underwhelmed, but that’s kind of what’s appealing. It’s well-designed, made in the U.S., attractive, and makes for a solid EDC linerlock knife with premium materials at a very fair price. The blade is the heart of any knife, everything else is just transport and support systems. The 842 has an S30V stainless steel, 3.125-inch drop-point blade, which is an exceptionally useful size, shape and material for general EDC as well as for hunting. It opens smoothly on their bearing pivot system with a flipper, so it’s easy for lefties to deploy as well. The liners and linerlock are covered by blue and black G10 scales which are thin yet nicely contoured which is comfortable and exposes the layers to create an attractive pattern. The pocket clip allows for deep carry which is nice. Overall this knife was very comfortable to manipulate and take in and out of the pocket. At an MSRP of $150 this is a solid knife that can pull double duty for EDC or as a pocket clip hunter. MSRP $150.
