Any one familiar with this firm?

Their website: https://widowmakertexas.com/?v=47e5dceea252

I saw their line at the Nation's Gun Show this evening. Their OTF knives look solid, but does anyone have field reports on them?

Some of the designs look very familiar. Anyone know what steel they are using?

An excessive amount of awesome.

In all seriousness, the biggest advantage I have found is the ability to easily, safely, open and close the knife with one hand. This has beecome even more useful to me in the recent months as I often find my other hand occupied by holding onto a one year old.

I’ve seen these at a couple local gun shows. They may be “individually assembled in Texas” they looked like they were the same exact Taiwanese knives that another guy sells at the other end of the gun shows for 1/5 (or less) the price they do. I have the impression that they are all marketing and no manufacturing (other than basic assembly).

Either way these knives in no way compare to a Microtech or Benchmade. I strongly recommend you save your money!

I did by one of their twins from the other guy for less than $20 and my Fiancé loves her big nasty looking knife.


Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................

Some (not all) models are Microtech Knock-Offs. There are a few OTF Knife "manufacturers" from Texas and they all seem to resemble the cheap Taiwanese/Chinese Microtech-Style OTFs
