Anglo Arms Zebrawood Lock Back Knife Review
The Anglo Arms Zebrawood Lock Back Knife is a low cost knife that has a quality feel to it. It is a traditional lock back knife with a stainless steel blade. This is perfect for someone who wants a lightweight, low fuss, low cost knife and it would be a very handy addition to any Preppers kit.
The handle of the Anglo Arms Zebrawood Lock Back Knife is an attractive light zebrawood with indentations for your fingers to provide a comfortable and ergonomic grip. It is extremely easy to hold and fit my hand well. The handle measures approximately 11cm (4.5 inches) in length. It feels solid and stronger than expected for the cost of the knife. Although I consider functionality more important than the look of a knife, I have to say I really like the look of the zebrawood. It gives a more stylish finish to the knife and creates a more expensive feel.
The stainless steel blade of the Anglo Arms Zebrawood Lock Back Knife measures approximately 9cm (3.5 inches). It came out of the box sharp and ready to use. It feels reasonably strong and it would have no trouble cutting through cordage and similar. The locking mechanism works very well and does not feel stiff. The lock release mechanism also works smoothly and feels like it will be long lasting. There is some nice Anglo Arms branding on the blade which adds to the overall look of the knife.
I really like this knife! For the cost, it is a lot better than you would expect and would fulfill a lot of Prepper needs. It only weighs 101 grams so is really lightweight. This means it would be an easy addition to make to your bug out bag. The only thing that I would say would make this purchase more complete would be an included sheath or carry case. That being said, this is a great little knife that is ready to go, straight out of the box. What more could you ask for?!
