I use this product in a Data Center. I use it, primarily, to cut packing tape in order to remove equipment from boxes. Occasionally I need to cut boxes (yes, I know how quickly paper dulls), and in extreme situations Cat6 networking cable. After 2 months the straight portion of blade has a hard time cutting soft butter. The manufacturer has never specified the final angle of the blade merely left it with "match your grind angle to your blade". I don't have digital tools, nor a great freehand. Isn't this what specs are for?It looks cool. If I ever need to crack a human skill open, the weight of this beast will likely suffice. With the aggressive grip I am confident the unit won't slip once bloodied or covered in gray matter (brains). As I carry it in a ruler pocket I am able to generate my own breeze in my pant leg with minimal effort due to the mass. Could they save 20% of the weight easily? YES. 30% may present a challenge and result in weakness. As I am NOT using this device to adjust attitudes from 4 - 5' away I do not believe its heft will matter, but the "oooh"s, and "aahhh"s prompt me to believe it would be easy.Maybe I need to take it to a steel every week or two. I will do that once I get it back from the shop with a decent edge. But that only deal with true and not sharp. I didn't check the "pro" box regarding sharpness because I don't use it to spread condiments. Nor the "con" box because it has yet to let me down.
