Knafs | Lander | Blue G-10 + D2
The first ever Knafs knife. The Lander. It's a pocket knife that embodies the spirit of the first landing on the Moon. Take charge. Stick the landing. Walk on the Moon. The Lander is a pocket knife of possibility.
The scales on the Lander are Fast Swap Scales: they're easy to remove without disassembling the entire knife. Simply unscrew four screws, and you're freeee! If you're unfamiliar with pocket knife disassembly, typically removing the scales can be an ordeal: the entire knife falls apart in your hands, and you've got to retune everything to align all the parts. Not hard, but not fast or convenient either.

The thing that first attracted me to this knife was the swappable, open-source scales and how you don't have to completely disassemble the knife to swap them. But when it arrived, I was very pleasantly surprised by the overall build quality of the knife. Even though it's small, it feels solid in the hand. And the blade flies out super-quick when deployed. That actually took me aback! There's a solid, but very short detent, and once you break free of it, the blade deploys with a pleasant THWACK! As for the blade, D2 is pretty common, but it comes super-sharp out of the box and it's nicely thin behind the edge. The blade shape is very slicey! As for the handle, I myself love G10 and that blue is gorgeous!
My only minor gripe would be the clip. It's a little big and the bill sticks up a bit. It's not totally uncomfortable, but you know it's there. Other than that, this is a great knife and I'm looking forward to using it!
