The review below is by Captain Willie Wines Jr. (IronFiremen.com)

I’ve been reviewing the Coast DX330 for a few months now.

The Dx330 has a partially serrated blade which I really like and the “tanto” blade makes for easy cutting. Like most firefighters, I carry my knife everyday which means it has to hold up both on the job and off.

It arrived nicely sharpened and held it’s edge under some grueling use (near abuse). I did eventually dull it down but it sharpened back nicely.

The DX330 comes with a seat belt cutter and window punch which I haven’t had the need to use but appreciate being there in case I ever do.

One of the things I liked the most was the formed or textured grip which fit perfectly into my hand (I have relatively small hands). It is a well balanced, good feeling knife in your hands.

With a 3.25 in blade and coming in at just a little over 8 inches overall, it a good size knife for every day use / carrying.

Even though it weighs only 4.2 oz I did think it was a little heavier than my previous blade. With that said, I also wasn’t happy with the pocket clip. I appreciate that the DX330 clip is metal and more likely to hold up with frequent use. What I didn’t like was the wear and stress it put on my pants and pocket.

It opens easy (backwards to my previous knife) and has double locks. Overall, I am very happy with the DX330 and would recommend it to perspective buyers.
