for bigger hands
I am very impressed with this knife so it deserves an honest review. I purchased this knife at the end of August and received it before i was expecting so kudos to Knifecenter for prompt service. This is my EDC knife and the only one i carry at the moment to really try it out. First things first, out of the box this knife had to be sharpened but that didnt bother me as thats half the fun. Secondly, this knife doesnt have a secondary bevel and you must know how to sharpen it correctly to get it razor sharp. When i say razor sharp i mean it. This thin carbon steel blade takes a very keen edge and it holds it very well. After a month of EDC and daily use plus some light wood processing for a couple small city park cook fires all it takes to shave with it again is some strop work. Few passes on each side gets her scary again. Yes, i must admit, i have already found out just how sharp she can get. Very clean cut healed in a week. Back to the knife. This knife is great of you need a knife for work in public as it takes time to open it and it has an eye appeal, meaning its not a tactical/scary looking tool. Its simply a knife meant to cut and cut well. I titled this post "for bigger hands" simply because with the knife open it really feels like a bigger knife. I have bigger hands (mens size L-XL) and its just about perfect. The lock ring on mine took some time to get used to but now its second nature. Some reviews say it can be hard to open in humid environments, i am yet to notice this and i live in Ohio. I have more of a problem with the edge sinking into the interior of the handle than anything. If your worried about rusting just coat it with oil every evening and it will last a good long time.
