Doesn't really serves as a tool
The Kilowatt would be a great city-knife and tool, but it doesn't hold the edge well. It's said, that knife is made from AUS-8 steel, however personally I don't think so. I've been working with AUS-8 a lot; it's usually much harder than steel, used in SOG Kilowatt. For me it looks around 52 HRC, which is proper hardness for a kitchen knife, but it's definitely not enough for a tool. When working, you need to resharpen it soon after 30-50 cuts of 5mm cable. This steel is stainless, it's really don't rust (doesn't at all), but hardness sucks.If you are buying this, make sure to have a pocket sharpener, otherwise go for something better. In general, knife is ok. It's not flawless, but it works. I like it's size, blade design reminds about Sebenza, that is definitely a supreme pocket knife. Wire cutting tool on the back is more stylish than useful. But it works and might be useful for electricians. If you appreciate design of Kilowatt, you might be interested in much more expensive knife, like Sebenza.
