The reviews on Amazon are less than stellar.
Yeah you have be careful on Amazon a lot knock stuff tons Benchmade.

Just like this review I found

I just received this and was pretty excited to add it my collection. I was not familiar with the HK brand, but was familiar with Benchmade knives. I read all of the reviews here and most gave it 5 stars. As soon as I took it out of the box, something struck me as odd. First of all, I took a look at the sheath. I have one that looks just this with the Winchester name on it. You know those cheap multi tools that are sold at Kmart, Wal-Mart, etc. Then I pulled out the multi tool itself and had the same feeling like I had seen this before! I quickly dug into a box where I had some older multi tools stashed, and found an old Winchester multi tool. All this tool is, is a rebranded Winchester tool, anodized (Painted?) black, with two different tools in it. It is the same size, shape, etc. It is NOT made by Benchmade! It is a cheaply made Chinese multi tool!! The tool I received is also different than the picture. The picture actually shows two different tools after looking at it more closely. It is also odd that nobody mentions that none of the tools lock. I will be contacting the seller and returning this item.

I got one of them from HK Parts, and was incredibly disappointed. The blade was not sharp at all, it looked fairly cheaply made (said made in China), and there were no locks for keeping the blade or any other tool locked in the unfolded position. It was worse than any Leatherman that I've owned, and far less useful than my Leatherman MUT. I don't know if I got a cheap knockoff by mistake, but if not, I'd be embarrassed to have HKs name on it.

This is the exact tool that I bought. https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/HK-Multi-Tool-Plus-Tactical-311p2651.htm

I’ve had the HK Benchmade multi-tool for several years. When I got it I knew it was part of Benchmade’s “made in China” line. With that in mind, it’s on pare with pretty much every other multi-tool I’ve owned/used.

I think that most of us people who love H&K would be willing to spend more money of good quality H&K products that were NOT made in China. I know there are some cheap H&K knifes out there. I have a very good Benchmade out the front knife that listed for $300.00. Its a really nice knife that is my EDC. I believe that you get what you pay for. I am not a rich man but would rather have quality.
