Superb folding knife
Excellent and perfect folding knife. Super design and very good material. The blade (sharpness) is also excellent. It's a pure pleasure to have it in my Hands, to open it and also of course to use it.

Cons: None
Just a whole new experience
I hesitated before I pulled the trigger to purchase this knife. How do I justify this purchase? The more I pondered, the less I was prone to purchase one. Then I had the opportunity to handle one and I was astonished with the fit and finish, the ergonomics, the beauty and the ungodly sharpness of a Rockstead knife. When I received this Higo with the iron wood handle I was not disappointed. It is hard to believe that this is a production knife. It is more impressive than any of my custom knives. And it cuts better than any knife I have ever handled. This is a whole new experience. I cannot be more delighted.
