Pros: Design, Construction, Material Quality, Sharpenability, Durability, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sharpness
Beautiful quality finish
Delivery was sorted in good time, especially given the fact I ordered from the UK. The box the knife arrived in was attractive with an understated black and gold design. The knife itself on arrival didn't have the best of edges, which was no problem for me because of owning several whetstones. I was disappointed that it was necessary for me to sharpen the knife straight out of the box. Working with the quality folded vg10 steel was a wonderful process how, and it sharpened up beautifully. The handle is beautiful, eye-catching and comfortable. The blade being 9.5" did not upset the balance much at all meaning for a large knife it isn't too tiring to use for several hours. The overall finish on the knife is beautiful, and it has become favourite out of my collection over the past few weeks. I would highly recommend this knife for anyone serious about getting a brilliant knife with good value, edge retension and balance.
