Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Lots of criticism about these being cheap knockoffs of the U.S. made Uncle Henry knives. However, they do use good steel, are well-tempered, and do hold an edge well. They are assembled well with real brass pommels and guards. The sheaths are well made, but not stitched as uniformly as the U.S. originals. While some say that the handles are cheap plastic, unlike the originals, this is not the case. Having carefully examined Uncle Henry knives in the 1980s, they also used faux antler handles made of Delrin, and while attractive, would not have fooled anyone that they were actually real stag material. Some of the Chinese stagalon handles show seam lines, and are not as pretty as the originals, but the material is the same. And, some handles look just fine. For the price, I think that they are good value.
