This knife is wicked. Came sharp as, literally the only knife you will ever need in your life, this knife is disgustingly nice, mother of god. The pressed leather handle is a little meh though. Feels like it flakes a bit.

Nice blade, but horribly angled
Sweet blade, enjoyed everything about it except the blade. It was nice and really sharp. but was leaning around 10 degrees to the right, which I can live with, but found annoying to get used to.
