Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
So far so good
The example I received recently is not hollow ground. The edge seems to be factory ground at about 30-35° per side and was paper cutting sharp. We used it on a big tree we had to cut down recently for almost all the de-limbing and she held up fine. It's slightly heavier than my big knife from Verusteleka and that helped in this particular task. She almost passed the paper test afterward but was not quite cutting clean-nothing would have. It does not have Chris's sig but for the price it's a good deal IMHO.
