Great knife and high quality steel. Sharp out of the box. Not terrible but not as smooth with the release/folding of the blade. Through continued use hopefully will be easier.
I've had this knife for several months now and have been so impressed by the knife and customer service. It is so smooth and comfortable no matter the task. At one point I pushed my knife's limits and bent the blade. It wasn't to bad, but it was noticeable. I sent it back to them and they fixed it up no charge. I got it back in great shape and time. All other folders feel weird in my had now that I'm so acclimated to this one. Great job.
Solid knife right here. I like all the little details: radiused liner lock, the thumb studs, the new steel……Mark, Curt and their crew turn out some really nice blades!
Love it great knife
best of the best - test
A typical production model that is of the quality one might expect from a mass produced knife. A good solid EDC blade for the $$, but nothing to get terribly excited about. My next purchase will be a shop made knife and my expectations will be justifiably MUCH higher.
I ordered this knife and received it blazing fast! This knife is well built for the price! Solid lock up and fits the hand perfect! Could not be happier with this one!
Best EDC hard use knife for the money. This is the second one I have given to a friend. Outstanding quality and durability. Could not recommend more highly.
This knife has the most comfortable handle of any folder I've ever used. This immediately went into my flight suit pocket.
The ASTOR is our first folding knife collaboration with prolific knife maker Les George. The ASTOR was built as a robust "Work Horse" of a knife! From its tough G-10 scales, thick liner-lock, and high ground premium CTS-XHP blade steel the ASTOR is the perfect knife for those jobs that require an extra bit of toughness. The deep carry pocket clip can be configured for left hand carry by switching to the left side and using the dual thumb studs. All at an affordable price!
All our Bronze (Field) Grade folders incorporate our new “Oil Infused Bronze Bushing System” or “OIBBS”! Our sintered bronze bushings are impregnated with oil which reduces the friction on the blade, thus giving you a tight but smooth blade opening. This system is especially useful for slow speeds, intermittent use, and uneven loads such as are found on folding knives.
