IT WOULD BE LUDACRIS NOT TO CONSIDER THIS KNIFE FOR $60
I have always been a huge fan of narrow profile drop-points, but it's so rare that you're able to find them; when you do, they just tend to be a little on the brittle side. How do they fix this problem? Easy. Try using a great steel like the high-carbon one they've used in this knife. I ended up taking this knife into the real outdoors (Algonquin National Park) for a week-long portage trip, and I couldn't have been more thrilled. I've never been one to go lightly on my knives - and for this one I just had to push the limit. I cut 550 para, yellow nylon, and boat-tow cables with ease. I popped a mangled rivet out of our canoe, and opened a can of beans on the way in. I cut, slash and even chopped through a 3.5" branch for fire wood, and then still had enough edge to cleanly dress this beautiful 16" speckle that I caught. I bought this knife to be a real outdoor beater, but I'd take this knife anywhere with me and bet my life on it. The handle could have been a little longer (even though it covers the entire tang - unlike the picture), but the thumb grooves more than make up. Amazing balance - which I happily tested on several 10-15" throws - and felt even better when held backhand. The finish broke down as expected in my eyes. Starting with a great beaded texture, the oxide finish slowly slips away instead of chipping on hard worked areas like the tip -- though didn't wear much along the cutting edge. Could have gone with a better sheath, but you can't win them all. I hope to upgrade to a custom made by survivalsheaths.com. All in all, I couldn't be more pleased with the knife I bought. As far as value goes...well, it goes ways above the price tag. Hope this review will persuade you into grabbing this knife, as i'm greatly considering a Shiv as well.
