Pretty good for the price
I use this knife just for cutting everyday things like plastic or fruit. It take some time before it sharpens, but its simple and to the point in how it can be used and is easy to use. I would have like to have known how blunt it would be before ordering and a recommended sharpener for carbon steel.
