So here is what I think of this Colt Peanut pocket knife. It's shiny. I keep saying this, so it obviously highlights some repressed version of myself that I am in denial about, but I don't typically go for bling. As traditional styled knives go, I think this thing is pretty flashy, and I like it. The Buckshot Bone, as they call it, is pretty cool and also unique. Little red liners take the cool factor up another notch. Long pulls and swedges, take my money! Half-stops all around, excellent snap, strong springs and overall positive function start to make it pretty hard not to like these knives. I liked the way it looked, then I got it and I liked the way it functioned. A white glove inspection reports very good fit and finish with only minor flaws and blemishes here and there. What more is there to say about a pocket knife? I mean come on. Let's do pictures, then go all the way to the end for a plot twist!
|There you have it - pretty well assembled, no glaring gaps or screw-ups.|
|Then there was this weird spot on the bone where the color didn't take. Finally, it may be deceptive in this picture, but the small blade is in front of the large blade thereby completely obstructing the nail nick. Design fail.|
