Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great all around knife.
I have had this knife for about 6 months now. It is a good size for all around bushcrafting / survival / camping tasks. I have used it a number of tasks including pruning tomato plants, food prep, meat cutting, and light batoning at the fire pit. It has sufficient size and weight to chop small trees for a shelter if you needed to. Heat treat seems to be good and it holds an edge about the same as my Benchmade S30V knives. The blade grind was spot on and it came arm shaving sharp. Grind is high enough to make it a decent slicer for a thick blade. You can expect an increased toughness of about 20% over S30V at the same hardness. Handle is excellent and has been comfortable for extended food prep and meat cutting. Haven't had the opportunity yet, but I would have no issue with skinning and field dressing with it. The 4.5 inch blade seems to be a good size for just about anything I need to cut, except large food items like cabbage and eggplant. But even those can be managed with a little skill. Fit, finish and material quality is great. Sheath appears well built and durable. Fire rod does what it is suppose to. The only thing I would have done different is the handle screws. They are a more shiny finish than the blade, and look a bit out of place. I may stand them on end in a thin film of acid to dull them a bit. Overall, it seems to be a well executed knife. I think the price is reasonable for what is essentially a custom built U.S. made knife, with high end steel, and with a leather sheath and fire rod.
