You’ve heard of Sanrenmu right? Well
probably not if I’m mispronouncing Sanrenmu. Check out their
new to me, slip joint knife called the
-function. You’re like (with Stoner voice)- “whoa I thought it was just a knife bro.
that’s a lot of words. What is this? The multi function calculator of knives?
(Laughing) Like bros use calculators. Well no, because it can’t do square roots,
I think. So what makes it multi-function
other than the keyword-heavy title?
And where can you get this bad boy? And does it come in any color other than
yellow? Because yellow reminds you of your no-good brother, Bud Select, and
pee. First off it’s actually gold trim. Which
is easy to match with car rims,
your date night underwear, or that weird
zebra sculpture you bought
at the Pier 1 import store.
So yeah it comes in seven different
designs- from EDC
gadget website, Gear Best- which gave
me the opportunity to review this knife.
This particular color is called number
for whatever reason. This 4077 plus does
not have a traditional full locking
But I found it’s slip joint mechanism
keeps it in place reasonably
well with a nice solid click. The blade
also stays in place
when closed and needs a small bit of force to open.
Ensuring it should not open in your
Or your fanny pack, purse, man bag,
truck glovebox, track suit pocket, or
whatever other clothes you’re wearing.
I found it’s just as easy to open by
pulling the blade
or by holding the exterior and pulling
back on the carabiner, like this.
So yeah it’s a two-handed opener. It does
not have a pocket clip
and instead uses a carabiner- which works well on a keychain,
or belt loop, or ear spacer
or whatever. Make sure you do it
in a slow two stage motion
when you attach via the carabiner, so
you don’t accidentally open the blade.
The carabiner, I found, also still allows
you to carry it as a very discreet
pocket clip. Also if you use the carabiner
you can open that Bud Select.
Wait you’ve actually a upgraded to
Bud Plantinum, right?
Which I assume is named after its
premium metallic flavor.
It also has a small hex ranch thingy that’s
supposed to be good for something
like another bullet point in a product
The knife is small but seems to be very
well-built. It is not
ultra light because it seems to be
made entirely out of
stainless steel with a liner and held
together with three
tiny hex screws. It has very tight
tolerances and there’s no worrisome
blade play or flex. It has some cool
Chinese characters on the blade that
would probably make
a good tattoo and some letters on the other side in denoting its model
number, color, and
it’s of “Maye Design.”
How about some measurements with my
measuring device. It’s 91.7mm closed.
29.6mm at it’s widest closed.
110mm or 4.3 inches open length.
Blade length is 44.45 millimeters
or 1.75 inches
But the manual says blade length is 42mm
or 1.65 inches. Handle length is 66mm total or 49mm on the curved
part of the handle.
The blade it’s very thickest is 2.1mm.
And here is it’s weight (60 grams). The blade is made out of that
mystery stainless steel but it claims to
be a hardness
of hrc 58. Which the manual says is
a balance between hardness and
I thought “suppleness” only described body parts. Who knew?
Okay so how sharp is it out of the box?
Sharp, but not hair shaving sharp. But easily paper cutting sharp like
this envelop or this Virginia
Both are easy work for the 4077 Plus.
And how about opinions? Definitely a bit
too small for killing zombies.
Great for opening mail, boxes, light
vegetable peeling, fabric cutting,
or chopping veggies in gold zebra style.
So how small does look next to my EDC
Spyderco Endura 4?
What about next to other household
It seems like it should hold up well for
years because if it’s
And it comes in many other cool designs in case gold
ain’t your particular bling. Cool.
