Sharp, Pointy, Sleek - Prepare to look dangerous
I bought one of these knives several months back (Fall Camo) and loved it. I've since bought 2 more, but had my dainty-neat-and proper lady friend steal one of them because "it's pretty". The knife is probably the best $ for product knife I've ever owned - I've had Leatherman, Gerber, Kershaw, and Benchmade open assist knives knives with several other fixed blade knives and these are my go-to knives.
Sturdy, durable and sharp - the Tac Force knives are great for camping, fishing, cutting things, stabbing bad guys, throwing at trees, opening amazon prime boxes, looking like a badass, making your girlfriend look like a badass, poking, carving, general disarray, etc.
The can opener can be tough to use but it's functional, just have to learn how to work it.. and I have yet to use the car window breaker at the butt of the knife so no comment there.
All around great knife - I really love it

Nice knife. I have gone through a number of knifes in my day and this is a good one for the price. Smooth soft finish, good weight and the spring assist works well. Overall it feels sturdy and durable. Helpful tip: with inexpensive knifes, I usually remove all large screws and use [Loctite], thread locking solution, to insure screws never come loose. This will prolong the life of your knife. Hope this helps.

Read this before buying...
I have never owned a pocket knife in my life, but after binging LNM on Reddit for awhile, I thought it time I took my safety seriously. So I got this knife with the Prime membership & boy am I obsessed with it. The blade is legitimately super sharp and means business. I love the rainbow, it looks incredible when it hits light just right. I got down the one-hand open / close in about 5 minutes, it does open and close fast like the description stated. The bottle opener / screwdriver or glass breaker is such a nice perk to it. I hope I never have to use it to defend myself but if I do, I know I am in good hands with this product. Will recommend to others!!!

My expectations weren't high but I'm blown away
Awesome quality. Very nice heft to the knife. And the price Omg! Unbelievable how cheap and how amazing this knife is. Bottle opener is weirdly placed but who cares I use it as a last resort. Glass breaker is nice as well. I'm not into serrated blades but it is very sharp on this knife as well as the blade. Very good packaging as well. The finish on the knife is breath taking! Super smooth blade and visually cool. I took it out the first weekend I got it up wheeling in the woods. And i got compliments from all the guys saying how cool it was and how great the price was. Thanks tac force for solid knife at a great price!

The Tac Force TF-705BK is a great addition to my husbands knife collection
The Tac Force TF-705BK is a great addition to my husbands knife collection. He has had a easy time opening and closing and using it for different needs. He is planning to keep this one close by for emergency needs and will use it when needed. The style is sleek and its easy to use. There are several options on the Tactical Knife which was important to us before adding it to his collection. Look forward to seeing what else it can do for him in the future.

Great Knife, Great Price. Detailed Review.
Great Knife and you can't beat the price. I've used this knife for a while now and its preformed pretty good. I don't regret the purchase.
(Blade Sharpness): I like my blades sharp enough to shave hairs and the default sharpness wasn't quite that sharp. It's still pretty sharp though and for most uses, it will get the job done. If you have a knife sharpener, you're probably going to want to sharpen up the blade a bit to your liking. The blade itself has no wiggle. It feels solid/sturdy. It locks in place. The teeth are extremely sharp. Watch your fingers.
(The Bottle Opener): The bottle opener is a bonus to this knife I guess. It seems strange that you have to open the blade to use it. That's very dangerous. I tried it out and YES it is dangerous. Just look at the picture of the knife with the blade open and the motions and force you use to remove a bottle cap. A lot of potential to accidentally stab or slice yourself. I was also not sure at first which way I was meant to hold the handle, holding it with the blade backwards or forwards. Obviously It's safer with the blade forward but an odd way to open a bottle.
(How good does the Bottle Opener work?): Well, not very well but it does remove bottle caps, though poorly and not very safe. It's not designed well to remove caps with out much effort. It can take a few tries and stretches out one side of the cap in a weird way. I recommend just ignoring the bottle opener part of this knife. There are easier ways to open bottles if you absolutely must with out risking a knife wound.
(The Glass Breaker): I had an old junk window framed in the garage and this knife easily broke through it.
(Pocket/Belt Clip): There are screws to remove it if you want. If not, the clip is pretty strong and clips to your belt or pocket with out feeling like it will fall off or come loose.
(Design/Color): The knife has a stylish look to it. Open and closed. I chose the red color. On the side of the handle it says "Fire Department" in white letters. A few other color choices have similar text as well. It's not a huge deal, but I would rather there be text free options of the same colors.
(Ease of Knife Opening and Closing): To open the knife you can just grab pull the blade out until it locks. You can also flick the switch with the tip of your pointer finger and the blade snaps open. I feel like the flicker switch could be slightly longer or designed a bit easier to flick. After several flicks in a row and through out the day, the tip of my pointer finger was not feeling so good.
To close the knife, look on the underside of the handle near the blade and press down on the metal lock with your thumb until you are able to begin closing the blade with your other hand.
(Conclusion): Very great knife. I enjoy using it. It looks great. It preforms great. There were a few small problems mentioned, but the main purpose of the knife is to slice and it does that very well. Highly recommended great priced knife.
Side notes, keep in mind the size of the blade. For cutting up tape on boxes and such, you may want a smaller blade which should be easier to work with.
Right or Left Handed - This is mainly a right handed knife due to how you open it and where some of the grip is located on one side and not the other. You have to hold it in your right hand and flick the nob. I tried doing that left handed and it was very difficult as the clip was in the way. The clip is removable though but it still feels like a right handed knife.

nice for the price
Easy open but the mechanism seems to be susceptible to lint and has slowed the assisted open and made it slower to shut. You can't use the bottle opener with the knife closed and it's hard to hold and use the bottle opener without potentially cutting yourself. Came very sharp. Easy to push the lever to close it. The open area on the knife to grip to pull open the knife is sharp and needed to be ground To smooth the sharp edges. But for the price... It's cute.

Could be sharper but good overall
I carry this wherever I go and is great for cutting open boxes, cutting ties, eating steak etc. I wish it were a bit sharper and had a wider grip for my giant hands but it fits perfectly in the mini pocket of my jeans. The clip is strong and the spring assisted mechanism gives a satisfying click upon opening the knife. I haven't used the bottle opener function but I'm sure it works (only if the knife is open though). I'd buy this again, granted it doesn't rust badly over time.

Solid for general use, stupid bottle opener design
Pretty intense and bulky knife but for a basic user (camping, around the house use) it's a really nice knife. I widdled a few twigs during my last camping trip and the blade is still very sharp, so it seems to be durable. The urban camo color is pretty cool. Beer opener is really stupid though, as the blade has to be out and you risk cutting yourself (seriously, what the heck were the designers thinking?). Overall a solid buy, esp at the price.

One sharp knife
I kinda tested the sharpness and I just did just enough on my fingers to say, oh heck no, it's too sharp.. Good assist on the opening and locks good. Will be used as a EDC. I already have a camper knife and 3 other Swiss and multitool knifes so I think I'm pretty content after getting this knife at a good bargain. I'm good with this as a survival everyday carry. I also have a pretty nice box cutter and this has made it a second choice for that usage.
