With its stylish frame and clean lines, it almost feels wrong to use the Pazoda™. But once you've got this blade in hand, that feeling goes away real quick.
The Pazoda™ family of pocket knives is subtly stylish and expertly efficient. The Pazoda™ Large is the bigger version of the original Pazoda™ and the smaller Pazoda™ 2. It features an oval thumb hole for easy ambidextrous opening and a stainless steel frame lock for safety. This folding knife has a deep carry pocket clip for tip down carry and it rides low and inconspicuous in your pocket. The smooth stainless steel handles of the Large Pazoda are ideal for personalized laser etching or simple engraving .
The Pazoda™: a stylish knife that isn't afraid to get run through the mud.
Ordered the Pazoda with the Veff serrations. Was expecting the typical angled scallops, not the flat top. Oversight on my part, nothing against CRKT.
Solid blade lockup with no play
VERY light weight for how big it is
Blade sharp enough to cut clean through double-wall corrugated cardboard, with a bit of effort.
Good looking knife
Blade isn't 100% straight. Angled towards the pocket clip at the hinge, to the brushed side at the tip.
Hard edge around the thumb hole is VERY uncomfortable
(Thought about whipping out my rotary deburr knife on it, then thought better of messing up the coating)
That said, For a budget knife, I can't complain. I understand that for the sake of production,gotta sacrifice on something. 4/5 from me
