Near perfect

The knife will be used as a camping and day hiking tool. I done a ton of research prior to the purchase of this affordable knife. It seems well made and should last a lifetime, if properly taken care of. I initially considered removing the coating but eventually considered only removing the coating on the spine and replacing with gun bluing. Since the ferro rod striker needs thrown in the garbage, the knife spine needs some work to a make this a multifunctional tool. The plastic sheath is not as bad as people say but I plan to drill a drain hole in the bottom for those wet days. Just because I plan to make some modifications to the knife doesn't mean it's a bad one. I like the knife and will highly recommend it. Buy this one if you are reading this.

Excellent Knife

I disagree that this knife is better than an Esee but it is a great value for the money spent, it would be an interesting argument. I love my Utica, you get excellent quality at an affordable price, the Utica also includes upgrades you'd have to buy separate with many other knives, micarta scales, ferro rod, and sharpener. I also really like the sheath, the knife locks in solid.

7 out of 5

Just as a few other reviewers stated, it's just as nice if not better than an Esee knife. The blade is extremely sharp, the fit and finish is outstanding, the canvas micarta hande is nicely grooved with plenty of jimping and the finger choil is well done. I can't express my enthusiasm about this knife enough. The price on these are very reasonable. Why are other companies getting all the credit? BUY A UTICA FIXED BLADE.

New camping knife

Wife stole my previous knife for by the bedside she likes big knives and feels "safe" so gave me an excuse for a new knife. Ever since I opened this bad boy up I'm in love. Feels really good in hand super sharp. I wish I had gone with polished but the powder coat is going to offer longer protection with less care so no complaints. Sheath fits tight and doesn't have rattle. If you're looking for a knife that isn't ridiculous expensive but is really good quality pick it up. Knife even came coated in oil. Overall very pleased with my purchase.
