It has been a regular price for I don't know how long (at least in my area). There are literally piles of these knives in different designs (including some cheap multitools that still get the job done... at least a couple times before they fall apart) in all my local Walmarts, all for $3.87

Some stores are down to a buck now. Grabbed a bunch of Camo and Stag models. Decent knives to abuse instead of your expensive blades.

These are not great knives by any stretch, but are hard to beat for the price. They are made out of 3cr13 or 420J2 stainless steel, and if you read this thread on another forums [bladeforums.com] you will see comments in there from a Walmart buyer who explains their first priority was making sure this line of knives were safe to use. They didn't want the knives to fall apart, have screws falling out or weak blade lock up. They sacrificed on steel quality to hit their sub $4 price point. And as someone else pointed out, you can find these knives discounted to $1 or $2 quite often. If that's not slick then I don't know what is.

I've got one and it works fine. It hasn't fallen apart in the couple of years I've had it. It takes a good edge but doesn't hold it as long as something like 8cr13mov steel does. It opens smoothly, locks up well and cuts cardboard just fine. Just like any knife you have to maintain it; sharpen, lubricate, clean, adjust the pivot screw and watch for screws backing out. Loctite thread locker is your friend if screws start backing out on any knife.

I've got 30+ knives in my collection and will pay for a quality one, but I have a soft spot for knives that are a good value for the money. The Ozark Trail knives fall into that category even if they are way, way over on the budget end. Perfect first knife for a kid, so long as you teach them to respect and take care of the knife. I gave mine to my daughter when she was old enough.

You can get a far better knife for $20, and something you will really love for $50+. Once the knife bug hits you will be trying to justify spending $200+ on a knife just so you can keep it home wrapped in a soft, cloth diaper all shinny and new.
