Camillus BEAST 9.75" Folding Knife is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best knife I've EVER OWNED! I put this knife through all kinds of abuse. I cut through all sizes of card board, stabbed and sliced through a case of soda a mix between both empty and full cans, it cut threw 2 liter bottles with ease. Then proceeded to Throw it at a block of wood if it stuck it stuck deep the locking device never failed and still no nicks in the blade. Then for my final test I stabbed a washing machine 3 times each time with more force creating 3 different sizes of holes. Still this blade functions flawlessly and kept its razor sharp edge, the tip is a lttle dinged up but after putting it on a sharping stone it's back and is still cutting effortlessly. I love this blade!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best knife I have ever used. I have had this knife for over seven years now and loved every second of it. Big part of my every day carry. Being a small time cinematographer, I have found this knife handy for many film shoots. It's wide area of use is awesome. Then tragedy stuck the pocket clip broke of after one too many snags on various items, and that night I shed many a manly tear for my beloved knife. Alas this knife still carry's on to this day just deeper in my pockets. We are down a clip but we still move on and I still love this knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough well constructed BEAST of a knife As a avid blade collector this knife "BEAST" is awsome,Feels great in my pocket the clip is super strong,like the blade down or up clip option.Handle is smooth and feels great in the hand though maybe adding some type of gripping strips for that extra non slip grip, might be a good thing?I plan on carrying the BEAST a lot thought it's bigger then most clip knives for carry it sure feels great in the pocket,sitting or bending it does'nt bind up in your pocket like some other knives.Price is fair ,quility super,look forward to trying your other fine products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAST IS RIGHT Great Blade for Law Enforcement use as well as Military. I will clearly count on this knife in any situation. Great One handed operation with a little practice. Very Smooth and quick to open. Fits perfect in my hand and there is no skimping on the G10 used. But, best of all is the beefy VG-10 Japanese Steel blade. Holds a great edge, sharpens up very nicely and it is tough!! Great Knife all around, unless your one of those guys that likes the small light weight blades. Whats a few ounces when it comes to your life...really!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beast for sure! As someone who collects and uses tactical gear this is one of the best knives I've come across! High quality in a simple pocket knife. Fits very well in your pocket, however more important to the big and tall, it fits larger hands like a dream! Needs a little blade work out of the box, but a few licks on a stone and it will clean the burrs and place a decent edge on this Beast! Picked mine up for bout half retail and worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Fixed Blade quality in a folder!!!" Great knife! well balanced, extremely strong, and very durable! keeps and holds an edge in the most rigorous of tasks. It honesly feels like a fixed blade, with the compact versatility of a folding knife. And, there isnt a material out there that i would prefer over what they used for the blade and handle. great for everyday jobs, or even as a tactical/self defense blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I'm a former Marine and I have come across MANY different knives from many different countries and this knife just out does them all!! It fits and feels great in my hands, left or right, and it shreds everything I put to its blade. HANDS DOWN! The best knife Iv'e ever held much less owned! Show me a better knife!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kinda big.... but it's my EDC. This is my main EDC and I have yet to find an instance where this knife hasn't come thru for me. I even take this as a backup to my Fixed blade on Hiking/Outdoor excursions. Good, stout knife and can be an "attention getter" if need be. Only downside.... watch the liner lock to make sure it engages the blade well, otherwise... start counting fingers.

Ask a question

What size allen wrench is needed to flip the pocket clip. I want to switch it from top down to tip up. 

Asked by: Aaron
We recommend using a Torx driver on the Beast and not an Allen key. The size you would need is a T6. If you don not own a Torx set, then we recommend the Camillus Glide Sharpener, as it is built in with Torx Drivers. Please see link below.
