I can see why Darrel left HTM...
Seen the pictures and read about how it won a nice award, and had to have one. So, I bought one... Sturdy, robust blade, handle feels good enough, I have the a/o model and it snaps open well enough, but.... The grind was the worst grind I had ever seen. The edge was so obtuse, barely visible, it was more akin to the edge found on a chisel bit then a knife. It was litterally inoperable as a knife edge. Had it been a cheaper knife, China made, I wouldn't have minded so much, but for an American made mid-tech company, msrp'ing around $300 and "on sale" for still well north of $100, this lack of attention to detail, (seriously, the cutting edge of a knife, you would think would be the #1 detail to get right?), is completely unacceptable. It's not that I had to resharpen because the factory edge just wasn't up to my standards, but rather I HAD to reprofile the entire edge to create an edge capable of cutting a cooked potato! Shame on you HTM! I knew Darrel Ralph left HTM due to irreconcilable differences, noted to be quality and detail concerns not living up to his visions and standards, and this Kirby Lambert, (my first HTM), disappointedly showed me first hand why he left. Nice enough looking/feeling knife, but absolutely not worth the price of $150+ if it has major issues like an 80° inclusive angle on a thick slab of 154cm. And if a knife can leave the shop, passing QC with a blade edge of all things that poorly finished, what other "flaws" would "slip through"? One time shame you... Unfortunately, another U.S. company burnt their bridge with me and I will never purchase another HTM again. Sad to say, but I'do much rather buy another made in China Kizer and get much more for the price, with great fit and finish.
