Pros: Blade Material, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, None
What a pleasant surprise when it arrived!!!
What a pleasant surprised when I first put it in my hand! It's well balanced and lighter than I expected. The whole system is light. The handle has enough grip to catch enough...but smooth you could swing it all day without hot spots. You can even two finger the very end of the grip to get strong chops and completely swing it with confidence. This knife is great for chopping, cutting and with its choil and lightness you'll even feel comfortable dressing out a deer or elk.if I had one complaint....even though the system is light....I would of chosen thicker Kydex....but it's a small complaint. The knife looks pretty nice and the saber grind even looks strong. Great belly for handling game or large salmon type fish. I was in the Army as a Ranger and Long Range Surviellance Units and wish I would of had this knife when I was still active. I sharpened the knife to my specs like I do every time I get a new knife. Over the years and being the go-to-guy to sharpen every bodies knives you learn allot about knife's steel when you sharpen by hand with diamond sharpeners. You get a true insight into the knife company's steel quality. With that said....I would rate this knife steel pretty good with its tempering. I noticed that it also holds a pretty good edge with cutting. Like I said, I am pretty happy with this knife so far. You will be happy if you buy this knife. It's a higher grade knife at a medium price...you will be happy.
