Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
well worth the wait
This knife itself is visually a clasic 1860s style blade, don't listen to the people who write its a poorly finished blade, I bought mine recently, the blade came very sharp, I then sharpened it further using Japanese water stones, if you cannot sharpen a knife, you have no business owning one, its not rcoket science, learn it. This is my bushcraft blade, my deer and hog blade, my survival blade, my shelter building blade when alone in the forests alone. I carry two this blade and a Mora. The leather on mine is waterproofed and has been through the harshest wettest environment, in rain, sleet and snow. The balance is right, has the right weight behind it and the knife will double in the protection mode ( if you really need to ). The fit and finish of the blade, leather was actually very good. expensive ? hmmmm maybe......but anyone outside of the USA will pay almost double now due to the falling currencys. still worth the cost though..... !
