Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Finish, Sheath/Scabbard
Nice blade
I bought this knife purely because I liked the looks of it. The blade is fantastic, but I have 2 problems with the item. The first being that the knife pictured is not the knife recieved. It turns out that the one in the pic is a different model entirely. The second problem is in the sheath, or more importantly the fit of the sheath. The knife has a tendency to bind up and get caught both on insertion and extraction. I do still like the knife however.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Blade Material
Beautiful knife good for cutting but the knife point (3 mm) got broken the first day when removing the knife from a log (oak). Not the kind of tool for heavy outdoor tasks.
