Broke Within a week.
I Purchased this blade because it was an inexpensive Kukri style knife. I figured i wanted to get used to its handleing characteristics. While doing some light pruning in the back yard this knife broke into three pieces while trying to chop through a 2" thick tree branch. Upon further inspection i found that the blade is cast, not forged and the steel used is quite poreous and low quality. This is the last S&W blade i will buy... I think S&W should stick to what they do well, and not put thier name on cheap chinese blades.
