Could be better.
I must admit some disappointment in this little knife. First, it was not sharp when it arrived (out of the box). I had to work to put an edge on it with a diamond stone sharpener. Second, it did not hold an edge very well requiring constant attention. And last, the rosewood began to loose its luster and was in need of some block-oil. On the positive side is the shape of the knife and the manner in which the steel tang fits into the rosewood handle with three rivets. Nicely done. It fits in your hand nicely and when sharp is an instrument that can be utilized with its full intention. Because of the rosewood handle you do not want to put this knife in the dishwasher or let it soak in water for any length of time. For the money, and if you don't mind giving it a lot of attention, its not a bad purchase - - but look around before you "pull the plug."
