"Communicative, friendly, accommodating after sales support. Item [MPC folder] arrived in perfect condition and earlier than expected. Top notch vendor. I will certainly be returning for future purchases." J.S.
"Just received my Nemesis Folder and I am impressed! I have owned many "Top of the Line " folding knives but this Nemesis folder is by far the best!! It beats all custom and production folders I have ever owned hands down! One feature that was unexpected on the knife was that the blade when folded is completely encased inside the handle, no body of the blade protrudes. A very clean design and a very well thought out feature for a pocket carry folder. Do not hesitate to purchase if you need a large, strong, daily carry folder! I readily recommend this knife. Well done to Xtreme Knives!" Darnell - Canada
"Hello Nancy, Yes they arrived [Fulcrum II D and MPC] and yes I'm very pleased. The difference in the quality of these and the "knockoffs" is for real. They do a great job on the surface with the fakes, but the feel of the finish on these is very nice. It almost has a silky warm feel to these handles. The lock-up is "SOLID" and the action crisp. I would say that they are every bit a top shelf knife. I've had many knives from a lot of the top names you see out there and these may not have some of the fancy embellishments but if you want a KNIFE for a dirty job these will get it done. The FULCRUM ll is in my pocket and ready for EDC. The MPC on duty in my bug out bag/day pack and ATV rack bag from here out. Thank you Nancy and Xtreme knives. You've got another happy customer. Best regards." SPN
"I have always wondered why anyone would consider spending 100ís of dollars on a knife, and now I know why. This Faida/Nemesis folder is extraordinarily engineered. It inspires complete confidence. I would not hesitation to depend on it for most circumstances." E.J. - UT
"The ER [Extrema Ratio] Nemesis/Faida arrived this morning! It is a great knife and I know my brother will be very pleased and put it to use. I am thinking of ordering one for myself at some point. This was my first order with XtremeKnives.com and I couldn't be more impressed with the whole experience. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you. The customer service was top notch. The shipping was fast and the quality was outstanding. I will absolutely use you for all of my future purchases. Thanks again." Dave Andersen, Hunt Valley, MD
"This is the first heavy duty folder [Nemesis/Faida] from ER I have ordered. Upon taking it out of the box, I was blown away by the build quality. This is my 3rd ER, and I am used to the real nice craftsmanship, but this one takes the cake! It was worth every penny, which is saying a lot since this is the most $$$ knife I have bought thus far.
The blade is a stiletto design, which I imagine means slim with a mostly straight cutting edge. The steel is Boehler N690. It is very thick at 1/4 inch, and sharp! The shape is somewhat slender. All of my ER edges have held up good to light tasks like cutting cardboard, rope, etc... The grind is very even and I like how they polish the edge for less cutting resistance.
The handle is made of "anticorodal" aluminum scales. They are very substantial, and feel nice in the hand. My only complaint is that the "Testudo" coating is somewhat slippery when the knife is cold, and I am not wearing gloves. Not a huge thing, but one that could possibly be improved.
IMHO, The lock is probably the most impressive feature. This knife opens with a LOUD "thunk", and when it is locked in place, It is not going anywhere. The knife has a secondary slide lock, which honestly may be overkill, but I guess in the extreme way this knife is meant to be used, it is a benefit. The knife has the back lock that is 1/4 inch thick, and runs the whole length of the handle. The window breaker is no joke and is also 1/4" thick. One note on the lock is when unlocking the lock with your thumb, the blade has a tendency to swing down. First time I did it, it hit my index knuckle lightly and cut me!! LOL. It is very sharp.
All in all, my favorite knife to date. Thanks to Nancy for making the transaction the most pleasant around!!! I love this thing!" J.E. - Rockville, MD
