M&P Knife - Looks like a good one

This is a discussion on M&P Knife - Looks like a good one within the Knife and Light forums, part of the Armory category; I got this one a few years ago. I'm not sure I like the extreeme edges of the "M&P" knife....

I don't much care for the look of this knife (I like my plain and simple American-made Buck knife) but Taiwan is not the same thing as the PRC. One has been an ally, the other has not. One we've screwed since the 70s, the other has screwed us since the early 90s.

I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you! Our commissars are slipping if we can have weapons in the PRK that aren't allowed in Oklahoma. For once I get to say...



I carry a Gerber Pronto 3.5. It's by far the fastest legal assisted opening knife that I've seen. It just blows the doors off of Kershaws. It's just barely legal but as long as it requires fingers moving against the blade to open it (not gravity or buttons) and has the slightest bias toward closing we're good to go in most of the PRK. Never fear our ever careful commissars will discover their oversight someday and ban everything more lethal than rubber spoons.

I agree with Mike...it's like Gene Simmons whoring out the KISS name, putting it on anything that'll make a buck.



I'll keep my Emerson's thank you very much...

+1 Smith has a habbit of hawking schwag. Selling items like cologne, welders helments and umbrellas appears cheesey and opportunistic.



Before you know it, Smith will be using Billy Mays and Ron Popiel to push this stuff....

The island of Taiwan is officially the Republic of China or ROC

Mainland China is officially the People's Republic of China or PRC

I picked one of these (different blade and handle shape) on ebay a couple of months ago. The blade says 4034 steel. The sliding button on the flat surface of the handle is a lock - there are two assist points - the thumb knob/pin on the back of the blade, and a nub on the hinge (you can see it in the photo at the top of the thread). It's my understanding that the assist mechanisms (since they are not on the handle) are legal. YMMV of course.

I bought the knife shown from Knife center online for less than $40.00 including shipping.The blade is 2.9 inches which makes it legal here in Oklahoma.The slide button is the lock and the tab on blade is the assist, very fast opener.

"stainless" doesnt really tell me much about the blade....



anyone know what it is?



154CM?...S30V?



not that im really in the market anyway.
Absolutely no way in hell they're using either of those steels at this price point. If they're listing the steel as "stainless" it's most likely that it's either 420, one of the 440's, or perhaps AUS6A. Those steels are common on lower end knives like these. They're poor to average edge holders, but significantly easier to sharpen than steels that hold an edge better.



Knives are a trade off. Premium performance requires a premium price. I only have a couple of knives in my EDC rotation that aren't $200+. I use 'em enough that I'm willing to spend that. Not everybody has the same requirements as I do, and a knife like this one (even though it's hideously ugly) will fill their needs. All that really means is that I'm not the target consumer for this one.

THANK YOU! When every place on the net selling these avoids tellingyou what they are made out of, you have to wonder.



So basically it is .43-.50 % carbon, 12.5-14.5 % chromium, no nickle, no vanadium, max RC 56.



Somewhere between 410 stainless and 420 stainless. Basically total crap. Only knife I ever encountered with steel like this that was worth anything was a spyderco knockoff that was free with an order over $50. You could also buy 20 of them for 29.99. Hardened to the max, thin blade, flat ground, with 100% serration ground on both sides. The only reason it was useful was that even totally dull, you could saw through corrugated cardboard like one of those safety pumpkin cutters through a pumpkin. If the newer S&W knives are anything liek their previous knives, they likely aren't even particularly well hardened for the metal they are.



Spyderco native from wal-mart is s30v and about $40, and a very nicely designed knife from a usability standpoint.

One of the guys I used to work with had a really obnoxious customer who argued that his SnW SWAT folder was equal to any high end knife, and just happened to be a fraction of the price. After trying to educate the guy a little with no success, my guy tells the guy "the Benchmade in my pocket right now will literally cut the edge off your knife with no damage. That's part of the difference". Dude says "No way, not possible". My guy says "Lemme see your knife and I'll prove it". He deploys his Skirmish and proceeds to peel the edge off the dude's knife like a fruit rind, and when done shows the Benchmade to the guy. No edge damage at all, and still sharp. He did a first class resharpening of the guy's SWAT, and that guy never tried to run that smack in the store ever again. For as great as the MnP pistol is, the SnW knife line isn't.
