QSP Parrot D2 ( Pocket Knife ) review

QSP Parrot D2 (12 min 28 sec)

Have you heard people say - My Kingdom for a decent pocket knife ?

What I have today , is a decent pocket knife for the money .
It doesn't look TactiCool or anything , it is in fact some what a classic pocket knife when it comes to size and looks .
It opens via Thumb Stud , slowly or quickly . Just depends .

Problems - There was only one !
My liner lock was SOFT ! and the knife would easily gravity open . ( I hate this )
SO I had to dis assemble the knife , give the liner lock a bit of a bend inward and re assemble .
Lock is nice and taught now . No issues - barring in mind it did need correction .

Blade steel .. Good old D2 ! I really like D2 when it's done correctly ..
Factory edge returned some 250 slices
and my 22deg 180 grit diamond cut edge returned 450 slices of rope . ( Thats decent D2 performance )

With a flat grind on the blade , it makes the spine of the blade almost perfect for running on a ferite rod ( make some sparks ) as the angle at the spine is greater than 90 degrees . It does throw a nice spark ( In the video ) .
Here in the land of Oz , the price on the parrot at the moment is just under $55 republic bananas . This makes the Parrot really good value when compared to some overpriced , underperforming knives on the market .
Remember , this is the D2 version . I own a earlier 440c Parrot that completely disapointed .
I much prefere decent D2 to some underperforming exotic . ( But thats just me )
I like the D2 Parrot , an if they all are made to the same standard ( hopefully tighter locks ) , then a big thumbs up from me .
