The design of the Maker Knife is second to none. However, the build quality and delivery practices are… well… shit… As such, I’m always looking for an alternative for my utility knife EDC carry.

Recently, I stumbled upon the Exceed Designs Tirant and I think I’ve finally found something to replace my Maker Knife. It’s light, small, compact, and easily manipulated (open and close) with one hand.

It’s gonna take a few weeks of testing, but yeah… I’m loving this thing so far and will report back with my findings after more use.
