Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
A great idea but flawed edge geometry
I like so much about this knife from the handle (how it feels) to the steel (quality stuff) and the sheath. It however falls flat on it's face due to the incredibly shallow and axe like cutting edge. I own MANY Leuku style blades from cheap to very expensive custom blades. This is by far the WORST cutter of them all. The grind of the cutting edge is tiny, steep and not very defined. I am not sure what they were thinking with this geometry. I guess if the idea was to use it as a light axe it almost makes sense with the way the grind was made, but the edge doesn't work for that purpose either!! In essence it is useless, and I cannot recommend it for anything but looking at. It can't cut/whittle and it can't chop. The edge NEEDS a complete regrind for it to be useful.
