        Great knife for EDC. I use it almost on a daily basis and not afraid of damaging it. It took a few days to break in, and now it’s perfect. Milwaukee is a brand I can always trust.

        Weak Locking System
        Liked the knife until the locking system broke after very little light use

          Rugged Work Horse Ready For Anything!
          Milwaukee Tool Co. make some awesome tools, I own many, I wasn't setting my expectations very high when I made this purchase simply because they don't build knives for a living. This HARDLINE knife is a good knife, I like the size, shape/style and the flipper action. I also like the general look, it has a no nonesense "get to business" style about it and it seems ready to tackle what ever task asked of it. I am impressed by the rugged sturdiness with which they built this knife, you can tell Milwaukee intended it to perform real work and do so on a daily basis. It seems very well made even if the build quality is only average. There are some minor fit/finish aspects which a knife collector would grumble over but then again if you're a collector you're not likely buying this knife. The knife came well ground, even and smooth but not all that sharp. It isn't dull either but another knife I recently purchased with the same D2 steel is WAY sharper out of the box, so I know it can be made much sharper, and I will put it to my diamond sharpener shortly to remedy this. Another thing I wasn't particularly happy with is the difficulty I seem to have sliding the liner lock over to close it. On one hand its nice that it is very robust and well contoured but it has no jimping to gave you a decent grip. It's actually nice to see a frame lock as thick and substantial as the blade itself, it made me wonder how some other knives with rather thin flimsy liner locks would actually hold up. I hope through daily carry I will get more accustomed to it, but right now, it's just a bit frustrating with my extra large hands. The blade is well centered when closed, opens quickly with the flicker tab and the bearing is smooth in motion. When I use this knife I think "rough and ready" and I think that description suits this knife well. The pocket clip is reversable but is not a "deep" carry style and I believe that is intentional. You want to be able to grab this knife out of your pocket easily even when wearing work gloves and you can do just that. Plus it's made in the USA! That counts for a lot.

            It really feels like a good quality knife. It stays sharp a long time since it has a hardened metal blade.

            I received this knife on July 13, 2020, and I’ve EDC’d it ever since. In these past 3 weeks, I‘ve fallen in love with it! I have knives in S30V, VG-10, AUS-8, his is my first knife in D2, and it is a performer! I’ve wanted a Hardline knife ever since they came out, and the wait has been worthwhile! There is a break in period before the action becomes quite smooth, so keep that in mind.

            Decent
            I don't get all the 5 star reviews. Perhaps they are from right out of the package. This review is from everyday carry for over a year. I bought this and a longer one but this is in my pocket most often between the two, mostly due to the size and serrations. The knife comes decently sharp needing a minor touch up. It dulls fairly easy. Perhaps my specific knife did not get proper heat treating but it behaves similarly to the longer one so I don't think so. After a day of use, I have to at least take a honing steel, like one in my kitchen set, to revive the edge. The easy recovery of the edge is what makes this a 3-star knife. If it dulled like this and was hard to recover, there is no way I would recommend this. For me the flip open and one handed closing is easily done but the lock should be raised a bit to make release a bit easier to access. As it is, I push my thumb into the knife recess a bit to ensure I can unlock the blade. Of course, mine is well used and broken in at this point so I can open with a flick of the finger tab. I did black sharpie the red plastic liner because I did bot like the red beacon flashing out of my pocket. I do like the wearing of the black finish. It looks like a "battle worn" look with the high portions wearing just right. I am glad I bought it on a daily special sale, otherwise at full price, the knife would not be worth it.

              Outstanding quality - ordered 2 more for Christmas presents after getting mine. D2 (tool steel) holds an edge like no other. Comes very sharp.
