My first time seeing this little knife on Bastiongear.com I thought, what a gimmicky knife. It looked all sorts of wrong. Most of the colors were a bit,too, neon for me. The angles didnt look right. It looked like it would be uncomfortable to operate. I held off on it for a long time.
It was when Bastion had a sale on this knife that I decided to give it a shot, and I am super glad that I did!
Since, green is my favorite color and this was a unique knife I decided to purchase a color knife I never had before, neon green.
It came in the mail. A day later I put it to work, cutting through shrink wrap, tape, and cardboard boxes. It was actually way comfortable to use then I imagined. It felt really natural in the hand. I got rid of my regular utility knife and replaced it with this Bastion Slice. Instead of wasting tons of utility blades, I carry a pocket knife sharpner to sharpen the Damascus blade on the Slice.
It worked for me for a solid month and then all of the sudden I noticed two of the back screws fell out and went missing and when I went to make my cut the blade completely fell out of the handle and the knife went to pieces.
I contacted Bastion and told them what happened and within minutes I recieved a reply and that a replacement was on the way. I am blown away by the level of service the Bastion team provides. I told them they have a customer for life and went to buy a few more knives that I was on the fence about.
With their commitment to quality and service, I am sure the knives will not disappoint. On top of all that they also mention that they were adding 14 new knives to their knife selection. Just what I wanted. I took a peek and I see a few that I am liking and looking to purchase. Thank you, Bastion team!
