Pros: Handle Feel, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Not sharp
What I was after with this purchase was something close to the old Imperial Barlow but with real bone scales and carbon steel blades. They got both of those right BUT, the sharpening on mine is really bad. At first , I thought I could touch it up on my sharpmaker but then I looked at the edge under a magnifying glass. It was not even close to sharp down at the ricasso, on both blades, almost unground. It is unevenly ground to begin with but that is acceptable on a traditional knife. Not sharpened is not! I like everything else about it, so I will send it out to be fixed (probably to Apostle P), but I shouldn't have to do this on an $80 knife.
