I've seen pictures, and I've fired the pistol also called the P30, and from HK, (Obviously) but I know little beyond what pictures and a name tell you on the Web about a product.

So, please, do deliberate in an open manner about various shared or unique experiences that make your individual opinions on the knife differ.

Cheers from the States.

I got my P30 with the Hk branded knife as a much appreciated pleasant surprise with the gun.
It's a nice touch.
But I go with other best of breed knives for EDC.
Check the usual suspect Knife forums.
Remember that Hk doesn't actually makes knives.
They sub-contract and brand them :wink:

Invest in a USA made Benchmade knife. For something nice they start at around $150
As a Kershaw supporter and having been aware of Benchmade's deserved reputation for quality, thanks for the advice.

Might get the SOCP knife being sold to civilians given I'm a fan of SOCP as a martial discipline after seeing Army Ranger Tim Kennedy on Deadliest Warrior's U.S. Army Rangers vs NKSOF episode, and a fan of retention finger holes on fixed blade knives, after learning of the Strider HS and CS karambits in 2013.

Since i am thinking it won't be made by Houge, so if you have or plan on getting a HK P30 handgun i would get the knife if you can find one at a fair price.

I think it really depends on your EDC needs. If you want something to open boxes, cut rope, and just need an occasional cutting tool it’ll be fine.

If you consider your edc knife a defensive tool, it does not at all fit the bill.

Take a look into the SOG knives. I carry 2 for EDC one for personal use and one for work use. And neither has ever let me down.

I teach Kali as part of JKD. So I teach the knife. After some consideration all my liner locks got tossed in a box due to the very great danger in a struggle of closing that razor sharp blade on your own fingers and their resulting amputation. Liner locks are simply too easy to unlock. To give you an alternative, I currently carry Cold Steel tri lock knives. Normally this but it's not their only models

Just because some liner locks are junk, doesn’t mean they are all bad.

I own a Spyderco Military S110V with a liner lock. They tested this knife, and it took over 435 pounds of force before it would fail

These are some of the best built knives I’ve ever seen. Quality USA made knives too. No play in the components anywhere, lock it open and smack the back of the blade on anything and it’ll never give on you.

Anyone on the internet will agree, a Spyderco Military, or Spyderco PM2 is the go to war knife. Sal is the best in the business, he will even reply in his own forums if you post an issue at all about any of his products.

I love HK, I do.. but only there pistols or rifles. I think there knives are way over priced.

For around $200 bucks you can buy a USA made folding knife with the best steel money can buy.

We are talkng past each other here, my friend. I'm referring to the liner lock itself being unlocked in the normal fashion during a struggle. Cold steel tri locks have also been tested in the manner you described, to 800 lbs, and there is no way the lockback is going to open in a struggle, you can barely unlock it when you try. Plus the tri locks open as easy as a linerlock, just a flip of the wrist
