A tank of a knife
The shipping was super fast- I received my two knives in under 4 days- yes, I bought two of these, one for myself and one for a good friend. Upon opening it, I was honestly surprised at how hefty this knife turned out to be. I already owned the machete from this ZK line, and this tanto was no lightweight even next to it. It was razor sharp right out of the box, and even the little side-knife that came with it was very sharp. For the price, you get two knives, a very useful and heavy duty sheath with pouch, cords and extra scales- it's a very good deal indeed. My only complaint is that since a tanto is a stabbing weapon, this knife should have a more pronounced guard to prevent hand from slipping forward especially if the hilt is wet. As it is currently it actually makes a much better chopper than stabber.
