A Tekto fan
Being a long term Tekto customer, I was asked to take the A2 Badger for a spin in return for an honest review. Before being asked to do this, I purchased several Tekto knives (Alpha, Kenetik, Romeo, and others), so I am familiar with the brand and the quality. I am a fan.
Living in California, there are restrictions on automatic blades. The A2 Badgers blade comes in under 2” making it legal to own and carry. The A2 Badger truly is a tank of a knife, it is exceptionally well built, probably better than the other knives I have. The body is made out of light aluminum, and the machined groove allow for a good grip. The blade, as with the Alpha is great, black matte, and easily sharpened. The coolest thing about this knife is the opening and closing mechanism. It is addicting. The sound it makes is so satisfying that I have to remind myself not to play with it.
The cpoket clip was a little too tight, I had to loosen the screw holding it down, but overall this is an amazing knife. I tested the desert cerakote version and did not have a chance to check out the other two colors, I think they are oxidized.
