Excellent Knife, Excellent Steel
I have used this knife as an EDC, while camping and for processing small game. Also have used it in kitchen as it can slice paper thin. The slightly clipped, 3.5 inch blade of 1095 carbon steel is flat ground can be sharpened to a razor edge and hold it for more than a reasonable time. I have the Opinel #8 and like it, but I find the larger handle of the #9 and larger blade suits me better. While I have folders made of various stainless, I much prefer 1095 and it's performance. This knife locks open and closed and is a simplistic, yet excellent slicer. I enjoy using this knife virtually everyday. Great price, great service, great knife.
