Knife Collection Classic Must-Have
Probably one of the most iconic knife designs of modern times, the current iteration of the 119 is still just as pretty as day one. The level of manufacture has diminished somewhat over the years. I just recently bought my 7th 119 special, and have noticed various discrepencies between the build quality and finish of this particular knife model over the years. The edge grind, while sharp, is very noticeably "wavy" on both sides of the blade. The finish, and placement of the blood groove isn't nearly as precise as years past either. And this is true of my last few 119 models. But for the money, it is still a tremendous value, and still made in America to boot. Sheath made in Mexico.
