Exceptional build quality
This knife is so awesome I own two!
Excellent knives. This one is no exception, sharp and a beauty to look at.
I own several knives by you all and will be a repeat customer. Just fix the website so I can log in. :)
Ordered the solar sailer and it was promptly delivered 5 days later obvious blemish but I've got no complaints great life very ergonomic and quite sharp well worth the $15 don't know how they can afford to get rid of them at that price get ln on this great deal now.
A great concept and knife. This is perfect being so light to carry at the gym in lightweight sweats. I slide a section of gutted gray 550 cord over the hook and it disappears. And being purple I can claim it is an official Planet Fitness issue. I use another one with velcro mounted to the handle to mount on my sun visor (the side towards the roof) with no need for a sheath. Perfect for seat belt cutting or any other immediate need vehicle emergencies. It is very impressive they have been able to get an aluminum knife so sharp.
Bought off the blem site. Great blade. Well thought out design and function. How to pick it up and feel it to appreciate the intent behind the design.
I have purchased 2 knives in the past. Love your products. I saw you had the blemish blade and took full advantage of it. I think I purchased 7-8 more different blades. Some for me and some to give to family.
I love the Sailor assisted folder. It's large but easy to carry in your pocket. I like that's it's super easy to open. It's reminds me of a large version of the Mini-Jack.
I picked up this Orca on a blem deal. I compared it to my first non-blem Orca purchase and saw no difference cosmetically or mechanically. They both perform equally as well. I was lucky to get such a great deal on both! Get one or two while you still can!
I love everything about the MDV Aluminum Live. It's light, it's sharp and with monkey tape, it's easy to grab and hold firmly. If you get one, get the monkey tape!
I really like the rubberized texture of the Jolly Roger. Feels good in the hand. I call it my Jolly Rancher.
The Transformer definitely commands respect! I liked that it came with a sheath.
Upgraded the Privateer to the MDV Titanium.
Makes a GREAT EDC.
We have purchased 10+ Mini Jacks and gave them as gifts.
Great Pirate presents
A handy, well made, sharp and reasonably priced knife. I carry it all the time.
Just the sight of this knife should scare people…It’s great and fits perfectly in my hand..Exactly the right size for me to use at work and to add to my EDC..
I love these knives. I carry it with me everywhere. Holds an edge like nobody's business. It replaced my spyderco blade. It will be what is given for Christmas gifts next year.
Don't know what made this a blem model because it looks really good. Cool features and very handy. Could use a little better sheath. Overall very nice.
Just got my MDV +1 Aluminum. I bought it blemished and I do see a small blemish but you can hardly see it. The knife is amazing! Exactly what I need for EDC. I'm just waiting for my Rhino sheath and I'll be good to go!
I know this is supposed to be a blemished blade but I cannot find any issues at all. This was my first purchase from Skallywag and I've gotta say if this is supposed to be an "ugly" one, I can't wait to see the pretty ones!
Like all Skallywag products I have purchased, it is top quality. I love it! The folder is bigger and heftier than I realized. Even looking at the pictures, I didn't realize the size. That is not their fault, but it's a beast!
Great Knife very sharp. Purchased other knives. Great Product will be buying more.
I can’t tell why they were blems! I am more than satisfied. I have never shopped anywhere that packaged theit items better.
Honestly bought this knife for my wife. I thought it would be a good knife for her to carry because if its smaller size. But she fell in love with my sailor assist instead. This is a great little knife. It came super sharp and it's size makes it real handy. It makes a good skinning knife for small game animals. Very happy with the mini jack.
I have purchased a total of 9 of these little gems. The first one was too cool to keep so I gave it to a dear friend. The next 8 were purchased from the blemished sale at a price to good to be real. Again I have given away all but 2 of these cool little nasties. When seated in the car it is exceedingly difficult to draw my Wahoo out of my pocket. My EDC Mini Fixed is ready and available to deploy and open anything and everything I need to while driving or sitting at a desk. The 1,7/8" blade is very thick for the blade length and would qualify as a defense tool if need be. Rapid deployment and hanging there just waiting to be used and cherished. Thank you to you and your team for your service to our great country. May the Lord continue to bless you all richly.
Excellent knife! Not even sure where the blemish is supposed to be. But I wouldn’t have cared anyway. This is my new work knife.
Amazing! Would buy again!
Great deal nice knife well balance I get a lot of compliments about the knife.
I bought the red aluminum mdv+1..then got the purple one...loved both so of course had to get the blue one great products and awesome service can't wait to see if they come out with a black aluminum version as well...
I know everyone has said it but it's true; if they are blemished I can't tell where. I've now bought multiple regular mini's and the blemished mini's. Great gifts
This a great little knife with some smart engineering poured into it. The blem was wonky grind but 5 minutes on a stone cleaned it up fine. Only bit that I don't like is the silly little finger notch on the blade but that's likely more to do with having a hand that would be at home on a orangutan. I intend to file it open to make it efficacious for me. Good Job Skallywag
Again can't say enough about this company and their products. Outstanding.
The best company and products ever. They're great to deal with and shipping was fast.
I really liked this knife, but at some point it fell out of its sheath and it got lost. Would like a little bit more retention on the sheath but other than that, a great knife. Didn't notice the blemishes either.
Not sure on this one yet. I ordered this and the mini jack folder and what I was hoping for in this blade the mini jack provided and what i thought would be the issue with the mini jack is my issues with this knife. Its so small I barely feel it in my hand. Would be great for like 10% more knife, a little weight. That being said it functions well, I havent used it as much as the mini jack but it came sharp and its great for opening boxes, mail, trimming threads from clothes.
This knife is great, I dont notice it in pocket, was sharp out if the box. Small but also enough blade to get work done. It's always hard with small blades to know If they will be good for anything other then being small. This knife is a workhorse. It was blemished but the only issue I had at first was it felt tight when flipping open, like would open all the way, but after an hour of fidgeting at my desk it feels great.
The knife feels great in hand, was sharp out of the box, cant see why it was blemished, so great deal for the price. The only thing I wasnt it o was the handle material, looks cool also kind of goofy at the same time, I was hoping the differ t materials would have different texture.
I have bought 2, they work great. It takes some time to figured out the best way to draw them and some practice but well worth it. They are really great knives. Well made, good action and locks up solid. This is a serious knife. Very sharp out of the box. In my mind this is not a knife that you would carry for daily tasks, this is a defense knife and meant to take care of business. ☠️
I have bought 3 so far. 2 aluminum an 1 steel. Great daggers would highly recommend them. The aluminum ones work great for running and biking in shorts. Very light and you forget you have it on. The steel one is deadly sharp and a serious piece of kit. You won’t regret getting one.
Nice knife for the money. Works well, a little stiff but will work in. It’s a mid size knife and solid built.
works very well, just enough flexibility to cut around bones. also use it for processing wild game.
love it. ergonomic, carries very comfortably and well made.
I was skeptical at first but I've been edc this knife since I got it and it's been great super lightweight I forget it's there
Excellent product and in excellent condition, said it was a blem but I can’t tell.
I purchased a blemished blade, but I still haven't found a single imperfection on this knife. The bounty is balanced almost perfectly at the very base of the blade. Awesome knife/sword. I love this blade.
Great product highly recommend!
I haven't found anything wrong with it. This is my second one. My first wasn't off the blem but I accidentally broke the tip off and didn't want to be without when I sent that one off to be fixed. Great customer service. Awesome blades!!
I bought these as something to give to friends as little gifts and they are awesome small knives, besides maybe one that had a scratch the rest to me look brand new with no issues really. Highly recommend.
I thought about getting a Duclaw for a couple years. Why did I wait? Bigger and more robust than I imagined, this is heavy duty work knife. Impressed.
As always awesome knife with a great price.
Great little knife. Easy EDC with an awesome price. Thank you
Not sure how it’s blemished but it is a nice knife
I brought another Sailor assisted folder, a friend liked it so much I brought him one.
I have two of these aluminum MDV’s. I love the blade and the concept behind them. I’m looking forward to summertime carry with them and will be back to purchase more as my children love them too for their light weight and pure defensive role.
I really like this blade as a utility and back up defensive blade. Only issue I saw was upon closing, the blade strikes the grip. I bought this in the blemish sale, so I can’t complain either way. I will be back to buy several more as this is one of the best feeling assisted folders on the market!
I love the MDV! I have the Damascus, two aluminum live blades and a trainer all set up for different roles. I never feel under armed with this blade due to the training and the engineering/feel. This will last a lifetime, and it looks good! I couldn’t find the blemish either
writes very smoothly, solid pen/people poker. lol
Bought several items and I am very pleased with all of them. Love that they’re American made And the company is Vet owned……
Bought two of these Aluminum daggers to give to ladies in the family as Christmas gifts. They both absolutely loved them, and after a quick demonstration now carry these on them everywhere. Great product, great price and FANTASTIC company!!!
I’ve been wanting to get the Blackwater blades for a long time and they did not disappoint! High quality feel & performance as always.
Another great piece from Skallywag! I love the weight and feel of all the Skallywag products that I own.
D.A. crew carry your knifes an love the them .super sharp. Love it
I have been wanting this knife for a long time. The reviews on your site and word of mouth had me sold. The blemished sale took away the excuse of cost. The knife was more impressive than imagined. The only issue I found was I couldn't find the blemishes! I hope it wasn't a mistake and they ask for it back.......lol
I really love this knife. Small, sturdy and sharp. I had already purchased several of them prior to the blemished sale. Then I purchased several more. I have them stashed everywhere.
Everything I've bought has been great
Had to get all three aluminum mdv plus one models love all three …waiting for a black one!
This is the best folder I’ve ever bought and it is now my EDC. The design is unlike any other and everyone that sees it wants one. If you’re on the fence don’t be and pull the trigger.
very slight blemish. Almost unnoticeable. Cool Damascus pattern
Love it. Ordered one for myself and one for my best friend. I’ll wrap some flex tape around the handle for my grip
Absolutely love it, it will go in my go bag I keep in the car. In fact, I love it so much I ordered another to give as a gift to a friend.
I bought it and love it so much, I bought another one for a friend. I can’t find the blemishes at all.
I was a little hesitant about carrying this one myself because it’s smaller than I usually carry, but after trying it I absolutely love it!
I bought a couple, on one I can’t find a blemish at all, on the other it’s a tiny little knick like what you would get with every day carry. Loved it so much I ended up placing another order so I have it on standby for a gift
A little smaller than I would personally Kerri, but I bought it for a friend and I’m sure she’ll love it. The only reason I put like it is because I haven’t given it to her yet to get her input.
Just a tiny Knick on the handle, just something like you’d get using it and bumping something. Love it!
Can’t find the blemish on it. I know I can probably find refills at Office Depot or something, but was wondering if you could possibly tell me the size so I can maybe order online cheaper
Love this little blade it stays around my neck 24/7. Picture taken next to a lighter for size reference. I love how small it is. If you removed chain fits perfectly into the little coin pocket on your jeans. If I could make any changes would be slightly enlarging finger holes, so when drawn it's already in combat grip. The blade will definitely do the job, hut be aware due to length won't be effective verse thick clothing, aim appropriately. I love all of Skallywag Tactical products there all so unique! Would love to be an ambassador. Put the stickers I received on my 2021 tacoma trd pro, that I have about 75k invested in so far, if that tells you how much I love there products. highly recommend, already told my friends.
Great pen, have received several compliments on it already. Has written every time so far, I'm excited to see the patina the metal takes on with time. Wear it daily next to my backup blade also from Skallywag Tactical. Be good to use in a scenario where less than lethal force is required, or a scenario requiring you to sign something. Good quality and happy with my purchase. Shipping was very fast as well. I bought the blemished version and I can't see what's wrong with it, looks perfect to me. Highly recommend!
Love the lightweight knife, I keep in my right pocket next to my skallywag pen, as a backup for my microtech socom, which are backups for my edc. Amazing fit and finish, sheath holds securely. Fits nicely in my pocket tip down with just the curved handle extruding for an easy grab if necessary (hopefully never need to use it). I just recently found out about skallywag, and I plan to do alot more shopping from them! Highly recommended!
Very solid blade no blemishes that I can find love it .
Truly a great blade that is sleek for everyday carry. Bought one for my fiancé to use for her walks and immediately bought two more my sister and daughter.
Great knife. It is a great size for a tactical pocket knife. Very sharp and hold an edge. Love it.
Even the way it is presented in the box is awesome.. I have yet to find any blameish in this blade It is solid with a solid handle and pure quality.. I was never big on blades, but after I purchased this one, I bought three others you can’t say no to quality..
Awesome blade. Not quite sure why it was a blemished blade. Very fast shipping and I will definitely keep an eye open for another blade.
Badass knife! Real light weight and looks badass. Feels good in hand with its rock like design for the handle.
Very simple but well thought out when it comes to the handle an thumb placement. This is a great gift for anyone even if they don’t think about carrying a knife, this one is light, easy to carry, and is very discreet with its size.
Already done a review. The only Blemish I could detect was some of the etching appeared to be sort of faded, not as prominent as the rest of the blade. But you couldn’t see it unless you were looking for it.
Glad I got it and wouldn’t be afraid to buy a Blemished blade again.
I brought this knife for myself, I liked the looks of it. I was very impressed when I actually got the knife, it’s an very well-made, outstanding knife! I will recommend your knives to my friends! Thank you!
I got this knife as a gift for my friend, a former US Navy SARC Chief. He loved it especially the Scallywag logo.
Thanks for the great knife and quick delivery!
Received my order very promptly and everything ordered was delivered.
It’s my second purchase. It won’t be my last. This thing is so tough looking. I bet I could pry a car door open with it then go home and shave with it. Love it
Badass! It fits the hand perfectly and you really can't tell you're caring it.
Something nice for my wife to carry. Good stuff!! Love your products. Thanks guys & gals!!!
Very nice quality. Cant wait to use it next month on my fishing trip.
Very nice heavy duty knife. Easy to operate. Good stuff
Purchased “Blemished” Aculeus at incredible price. Can’t find any irregularity on it. Very sturdy knife with thick blade for harsh use. Changed included metal clip to nylon (my preference). Grip shape works well for saber, or reverse, grip. This is now the “Last magazine” on my plate carrier for high-risk environments. Placed knife next to standard GI AR magazine for size comparison. Great knife!
These are beautiful! I don’t see any issues but it makes me happy to know that your standards of being “acceptable” is so high!
In my pocket every day. Great knife. It's so light I forget it's there.
It say blemish but this thing is great. I can't find anything wrong.
The pen quickly became a critical item. I use this pen at my job at the fire department. The pen itself is used to take notes and write reports while the glass breaker is in quick access to be employed during extrication operations.
I bought one from the blemishe sale and I have yet to find anything wrong with it. The captain and crew clearly hold the highest level of quality assurance.
These knives / this company is awesome. Don’t hesitate
