I was told by Anglo Arms that they have a “strong and growing range of lock knives” and this is supported by the catalogue that they sent me which shows a very nice selection indeed!
In amongst them is the ‘Carbon Effect’ lock knife which comes with a nylon case. Following the same trend regarding prices as the previous products that I have looked at, this neat folder can be yours for just £9.99!
The handle itself is constructed of aluminium and, as indicated by its name, it features carbon fibre effect grip scales that give the knife a more expensive/ exotic look. The handle also features a sprung belt clip of solid construction which is rigidly fitted.
This knife feels solid when you take hold of it, not too heavy and not too light, weighing in at 99g (for example an iPhone weighs about 115g). The whole knife is of a good size, with a blade length of 3.2-inches and an overall length of 7.6-inches once open.
The blade itself is firmly secured in the grip and locking is via a sprung liner lock. I was pleased to find that there was no movement of the blade when opened, which is nice to see in a knife of this price. The design of the blade is a drop point which is one of the most popular blade styles as it is so versatile.
This design makes this knife an effective tool for dressing an animal carcass, through to general cutting and tasks like food preparation. The benefit of the design extends to ease of sharpening as well.
Good-looking, versatile, well-priced and of study construction, all good traits found in this knife. It’s well worth a look if you are in the market for a drop point folder, and the good news is that if you need a different blade type there are plenty of other options to check in the knives from Anglo Arms.
