A very inexpensive, rather good knife.
The Solognac Axis 85 (Furtiv Metal) is a 19.90 EUR knife that is a very attractive option for us who like respectable quality good-looking knives without paying top dollar for them.
I had was wandering around Decathlon’s hunting department last summer when I found this knife.
I like how smooth the blade deploys and how solid it feels in the hand. The handles are made of aluminum decorated with a very particular camouflage pattern, kind of futuristic in my opinion. The blade is covered with some kind if plastic film that I find a bit suspicious. It makes me hesitate about the quality of the materials, yes it is D2 steel but… we never know.
Generally speaking this knife is a good deal. It has served me well for my everyday cutting tasks and it has gone further when camping. For the price I think is OK to give it a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
