The knife arrived sharp and beautiful. The pattern on the blade is intricate and flowing. Nice feel in the hand, too. This would have earned 5 stars, but a few small items got in the way. Had to release a little tension on the pivot screw to allow the blade to open and close without "grinding" on the liner. Because this model features a liner lock that bends enough, one of the wood scales has a small gap at the rear of the knife between the liner and scale. A small touch of epoxy and clamping should close that, though. Minor things, to be sure. This is still a fabulous knife and Jack London would be proud.
The shipping was very fast and the knife arrived as advertised. It is a gorgeous knife which fits well in the hand. It has a balanced feel with the handle having a solid weight (not light and cheap). There is no slop in either the handle or how the blade is attached. The Damascus blade is beautiful, but be aware that the pattern may make any engraving difficult to see. This was bought for a gift and I would definitely buy it again for myself (I am a bit jealous now!).
I bought this as a gift for my dad. I'm a huge fan of Damascus blades. This knife is beautifully crafted with an excellent handcrafted handle to contain the blade.
Highly recommended to all knife livers & collectors.

Fits my hand perfect. Not too heavy for pocket. Comes with quality case. Very sharp. Bought this knife for my birthday present.
