Cheap... And that's about it. – Pocket Toolkit Mini Folding Knife Keychains - Color Assorted (5-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
-They are cheap -They are spring loaded -The blade opens very quickly, try loosening the screw at the pivot a little if they do not. -They're kind of colourful -They are keychain size -They do lock open and close, I would not trust the lock but the do lock
Cons:
-Blade edge is ragged -The handle is made of plastic -They do NOT have a safety. Don't put this in your pocket. -Blade is wobbly -Mine came with rust on the blade, keep these dry. -Blade is just stamped steel that has been sharpened, they will not stay sharp for long -One of them came with a large defect near the bottom of the blade -As stated they do lock, but the lock is very weak. -Many of them have small defects in the plastic handle
Other:
These may be illegal were you live. Be sure to check before ordering.
Bottomline:
Do not buy these if you expect quality, reliability, dependability or basically anything. They are little more than a novelty. That being said, if you look at them as a novelty then they are great. At 2.50$ you can't really go to far wrong. I would complain about the shipping time(almost 3 months), but I ordered them when they were a "new item" and then they had to be shipped during the pre Christmas rush. Buy a set, check em out, and if you hate them no big deal.
