Junk Alert!
The first time I used this knife, the (partial) tang came loose in the handle. OKC makes some nice stuff, but this isn't nice at all.

Good Carbon Steel Blade
To address the issue of uninformed complainers, this is CARBON STEEL, not Stainless Steel. IT WILL RUST. It is also the steel used for straight razors and will take a extremely sharp edge and hold it. That is why I bought it.I treat the handle in a mix of 25% Turpentine, 75% Boiled Linseed oil. Put it handle first in a tomato paste can, add mix to just cover the wood, close with saran wrap & wait 4 days. Remove, let dry for 4 days and you are in business for many a year.Pointy 1/3 was very sharp, rest was dull & needed sharpening.

Nice little paring knife
To start with, this knife was not sharp out of the package at all. It didn't really have a point on it either. I wasn't expecting it to be for the price. Using my DMT diamond stones, I was able to get it very sharp and put a point on it. It is a nice knife for small tasks in the kitchen. I wanted a high carbon paring knife similar (but much smaller) to an old 8" Forgecraft that I have. This knife will patina. it's OK. It's supposed to. It's not stainless. One complaint I might have is I wish the handle was a little longer, and the tang ran the full length of the handle. If you are OK with the patina and you are adequate at sharpening knives, then I definitely recommend this knife. Considering the price, it is worth giving one a try.
