Pros: Finish, Overall Quality, Materials, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Blade Material
Not a low maintenance blade
First I would like to say, I have owned the black model for about a year now, and I love it. For the price, you can't beat it. I will advise anyone looking at this knife, to perches the satin model, for sheath and finish. I had to have a custom sheath made for my knife, and it scraped up the handle. Also the finish on the blade does not hold up well. A common denominator for the cons side is the metals used don't like to hold an edge well, do to the curve of the blade it is a little difficult to sharpen, so I can not be certain that I am just not sharpening it properly, however I am consistently having to sharpen the knife once per week or two. I may have a lemon I don't know, I did thorough research to the quality of this knife before hand, I just want to make sure anyone who is looking at this blade is thoroughly aware of what they are getting into, this is not a low maintenance blade, but it is worth the time and effort.
