    Great Gift - 2/6/2015
    By: from Louisville,Ky

    I have purchased several of these for gifts. They work great and the engraving has always been flawless. Even the packaging is great individually wrapped in cloth bag and boxed with Col Littleton logo. A simple small knife that makes a great gift.

    Great Little Knife - 12/15/2014
    By: from CT

    Great Christmas gift for someone who is either not picky or has everything. I went for the engraving which added a nice extra touch. Very nice and handy small knife and I think (check the website) it is small enough for carry on luggage which is always a plus!

    Perfect Size - 12/15/2014
    By: from Sunset Beach, NC

    The size of this knife is perfect for any front pocket without being too weighty and cumbersome. Well made and sturdy with a sharp blade.

    Knife doesn't cut it - 12/10/2014
    By: from Pasadena, CA

    This knife is so small its only functional purpose would be as a letter opener. It came in a box with a cutout that is supposed to match the knife, but it does not. It makes for a very sloppy appearance. I would return it, but I had it engraved.

    This product ships directly from the vendor and even though engraved, we took back the knife with a full refund. We then reached out to the customer and offered him personal assistance in finding the proper knife to fit his needs.

    Too Small - 12/3/2014

    The product appears well made, but it is too small for the price.

    Great little knife - 12/2/2014

    I received this knife as a gift two years ago and it has been a trusty companion ever since. It is a quality piece that fits perfectly in my pocket. I liked it so much that it will serve as a holiday gift to others this year.

    I bought this knife for everyday use, and I carry it in my briefcase. I appreciate its quality construction, positive lock back, sharp blade and leather-lined box that makes an impressive presentation. I also appreciate Orvis offering this and other unique Col. Littleton USA-made products. Very nice.

    Maybe Unhappy - 4/14/2014
    By: from Kansas

    This knife is a perfect fit for a purse, blazer/sportcoat pocket. The engraving was nicely done. My issue with this knife is that it is not sharp--not even "kinda" sharp. I purchased this as a gift and had it sent directly to the person I was buying it to give to; needless to say, I am unhappy that I gave it as a gift...without seeing the product first. I would have returned the knife.

    Great little knife - 2/15/2014

    This knife was just what I wanted. The engraving is a nice touch and it arrived sharp. The locking mechanism is an added bonus. Check the size before you order. This is a true pocket knife and may be smaller than expected. Very satisfied customer. It also comes with a moon pie.
