Given the shredded carbon fiber multicolor handle and D2 steel it wouldn't be a bad price at the MSRP of $39.95. Nice find if I didn't just catch the knife bug and order Over $2000 worth of knives in the last three months I would be in for one. I wonder how smooth the thumb stud opener is on this knife? Find a buddy that wants one as well to get free shipping. That's the only thing that gets me. $12.99 is a lot for shipping. But they have to help pay for the free returns.

I bought it with another knife, so was able to get around the shipping, but you are right, that is a lot if you have to pay.

I ended up buying it from Grindworx which is part of Blade HQ for the same price but they had an option for $7.99 shipping plus I had a $10 credit so I ended up paying exactly $32 and some cents W/tax

QSP Penguins are very good quality budget knives for the money. Bought mine on ebay $32 with free shipping a while back. The action on them are very good. Shipping price kills this deal.
I went with the linen micarta handle, the carbon fibers are prone to chipping.

I guess I haven't had a bad experience with the shredded carbon fiber. My Civivi Button lock with the shredded carbon fiber is one of my favorite knives I love how the shredded carbon fiber feels and it's a little more dense than regular G10. Has a graphite weight and feel to it. Geez I got to looking at knives after looking at this and bought a Benchmade infidel for $215 new. I couldn't pass that up😉

There is free shipping if you meet the requirement. I got free "same day" shipping when I purchased mine with another knife.

Amazon has it for the same price, free shipping.

I just ordered a QSP Parrot for $28 this weekend, waiting for it to arrive.

$32 is normal price for this knife. Not really a deal. You can get blue G10 Parrot for $22 from BladeHQ. I don't recommend paying more than $30 for China made D2 folders.

No offense, this is my study on Chinese D2 steel: China made D2 steel is different from overseas D2 steels. China made D2 steel is basically Cr12Mo1V1, which has very low national standards comparing to other countries' D2 national standard, such as US D2, Japan SKD11, Germany 1.2379. Therefore Chinese D2 steel (Cr12Mo1V1) costs much less than other D2 steels, around 50% cheaper. A lot of impurities still remained in the Cr12Mo1V1 steel, especially from those smaller steel factories. I would rather pay significant extra for Taiwan made D2 knives or similar priced alternatives like 14C28N.
