Pros: Handle Material, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Material, Materials, Finish, Blade Sharpness
Honestly is the best policy
This feels like a knife as solid as they come. The weight is heavy, which is good to know it will take a beating and keep on. The hammer end is as hard as a rock, the hand guard isn't going anywhere either. The leather handle is freshly tanned (and even ready for a coat of sno-seal or neatsfoot oil). This is probably one of the most well put together knives I've ever held in my hand, however the blade material feels really cheap, the finish is rough and rugged. It's built for ruggedness but as for one comment I read about this knife I agree with = Paraphrase: "When I buy a knife, I expect it to be finished; I shouldn't have to sharpen, and fix it myself." The blade is so dull, I couldn't cut a shirt thread with it. In my view, either treat or temper the 1095 steel better (which is a great steel in general by the way), or do a better job putting an edge on the blade. Horrible quality control.
