I ordered a couple of these. One was missing a clip screw from the start, the other had a stripped clip screw so it wobbled. Both had gritty action. Plenty of better options out there for a beater, try a byrd or kershaw. You might get lucky and find a decent one of these, but why gamble when for about $20 you can buy a nice solid knife.

Amazon has it for $10.01 + free shipping via eCop. I've ordered from them twice with no problem. Massdrop does offer a nice community here, so it might be worth spending the extra buck and a quarter to support them. That's up to you.
Schrade knives are wonderful values for the money, but don't expect them to compare with $50+ knives. 3.5" blade is perfect length for me, but could be large for some. 9Cr18MoV is a modified 440B, higher end Chinese stainless steel that is FANTASTIC at this price point. It's a bit better at edge retention and more carbon content than 8Cr13MoV or 8Cr14MoV and still pretty easy to sharpen. I believe Schrade hardens this steel to around an HRC of 58-60. Knife is attractive with the sculpted aluminum scales, IMHO. A good buy if you want a basic knife. Lots of good reviews on it. It would also be a great first folder for someone who wants to take it apart to polish and tune up due to the good steel and low price.
If you are going to complain it doesn't stay clean and sharp all on it own, or that it doesn't have ball bearing pivot, or that you don't have the proper bit for the screws, please, just don't buy any knife. Stick to plastic cutlery.
Otherwise, enjoy your new, inexpensive workhorse of a knife.
I owned this knife from half a year, in short it's a good beater knife. Dulles easy sharpens easy. The liner lock is a little shitty but it works. 9 dollars, if you are new to edc, it's a good start.
Front flipper knife: After heating the pivot with a soldering iron, I removed the blade, polished the pivot area and replaced the bushing with phosphor bronze ones. Now, the action is very smooth and the front flipper work well, left or right handed. The thumb stud is more of an afterthought in the design and, once the pivot is smoothed some, the front flipper works better than many dedicated front flippers. It may take some practice for some to flip it open.
Glad I'm not the only one with the issues listed below.
Don't get me wrong for a $7 beater knife I think it fits the bill just right. Reversible or moveable pocket clip and dual thumb studs would be nice but it ultimately would drive the price up.
One thing I can complain about is the blade not being sharp. I couldn't even get it to cut a plastic bag open. Will definitely need to be spending some time on the stone with this one.

There is some thread locker on the pivot. I used a soldering iron to release the bond. After I polished the pivot areas and replaced the plastic bushings with phosphor bronze ones, mine is very smooth, and the front flipper works very well.

I've been flipping open the knife everyday for quite a while and it is finally wearing down nicely. I would have taken it apart, but I didn't have the correct bit in my set. I don't think I could spend any more money on this knife to buy new screw bits.
Guess I got lucky - my blade was surprisingly sharp out of the packaging; zero rip on paper testing.
Love the scales and bulky, rugged construction of this thing. Not a gentleman folder. It's understated compared to some knives; intimidating compared to others. A little too audacious for the front pocket in the office with it's enormous gleaming clip and high carry, so into the back pocket it will go.
A little bummed about the one sided thumb stud, but realistically, I will only be deploying the knife with my right hand, especially the way the pocket clip is mounted.
Recieved the knife in mail today. Feels pretty awesome to hold it in hand upgrading from a tiny Victorinox blade.

Recived it today ! Its a good knife for the price and feel solid in hand . It does need to be sharpened out if the box.
shipped are received before the estimated date. so i'm happy about that. The sharpness of the blade however is nothing to write home about. It STRUGGLES to do the paper cut test, cuts aren't smooth at all. it is a part cut, part rip of the paper. The blade is pretty dull. Now I gotta go find something to sharpen it with, was definitely expecting more.
EDIT: the flipping action is also VERY stiff. I've tried working it to try and make it open smoothly but still quite stiff. i will need to get a special bit to undo the screws to take it apart to sand and oil it.
Hey as long as the steel is actually 9cr18mov. I've heard that's a decent steel.
how long does the shipping take?
It's a good beater knife. I have a few of the M.A.G.I.C series. Feels good in hand. Don't have this one but may get one as a backup.
Interestingly, the model number visible in the pictures (SCH221OR) is for the orange-handled version.
This thing legit? Honestly even if it's rubbish it seems worth buying for the chance

I don't know if it's legit or not. I guess it depends on your definition of legit. Not a whole lot of information on this particular part number on the internet. Might be whatever is left over in stock somewhere. For $8 shipped it is hard to argue with the value.
