Pros: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Material
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
The knife, for me was purchased for 3 reasons of use. 1, For self defense. 2, For odd tasks at work, around the house, etc. 3, A decorative neck piece. Another reviewer mentioned that it is a very attractive lil knife that can be worn as a man necklace. This got me to think, cool. It will look nice, I will want to wear it and thus, have a sharp knife handy for at work, around the house at my disposal, instead of dropping what I am doing, finding a knife, if there is one around, and returning to the task. First. He was right. It is a very nice looking knife with the stag handle, well constructed, and all around quality craftsmanship, in my opinion. The downside. The sheath does not attach to the knife. It is a very nice sheath in itself, however. The belt loop is too small for a belt I would wear with Jeans. Belts it would fit are those that go with a dressier pair of pants, which would clash with the knife. I understand that with the size of the knife, sheath, a larger belt loop would not work. But, why a belt loop at all? Instead, how about a strap to keep the knife from falling out of the sheath? If I loop the chain around the belt loop, I will lose the knife in seconds. If I put the chain through the handle hole, I cannot use the sheath and will cut my chest. Had I known this, I probably not have purchased it. Since I did, and it is a very nice knife and extremely nice looking, I will have to figure a way to remove the belt loop that sticks out and is is foolish looking on a knife worn like this and re sew it as well as punch in a snap so the knife does not fall out. It is like this. The concept does not work the way it is designed, but the knife is nice enough to make you want to engineer a way in which it will. I am thinking I will have to remove the threads on the edge of the sheath, to resew the strap through one side of the sheath without also going through the other and then re sew that. Now I need to find something to hand sew through leather with. Any suggestions?
