Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
I to have another one I bought in the early '80's while livng in Alaska. Just bought this other one a few months ago to check it out. The fit and overall finish of this one is actually superior to my first one. I can't find anything wrong with it just because it was assembled in China, except that now it dosen't cost as much. Came to me as sharp as a damn razor blade and hold's the edge very very well.Easy to razor back up to. Just pass it lightly a couple of times over a piece of good honing steel and you're right back in business. I'vd not tried the sharpening stone that come's with it but I have examined it and I know it'll work if the knife ever get's dull enough to need it. I'vd skinned several deer with it, cleaned several catfish, several squirrels and rabbits, operated on my dog's foot with it and removed a bad briar, sliced steaks off of a couple of aligator tails, and also have used it in my kitchen working with vegetables. (raw celery, raw potatoes, raw carrots, etc etc). It is a well balanced tool, and I am damn proud to own it...Glen..
