I was surprised when my knife arrived a day earlier than it was scheduled!
The beautiful Damascus steel blade is better quality than I had expected, and after a few minutes on the fine sharpening stones and honing pad it is razor sharp. I look forward to adding to my collection of Forseti Knives soon.
Good looking knife overall, the problem I have with mine is that the blade was not sharp from the box. It was as if the blade was serrated with all the burrs still left on. I’ve had $5 knives that were sharper out of the box than this one. Luckily I’m experienced in sharpening otherwise it would have been a big let down. After getting it sharp and putting it to use I found that the spine and heel had a sharp angle which was uncomfortable after cutting a few vegetables. After an hour or so of sanding, rounding, and polishing the spine and heel, the knife feels and cuts how I would have expected the knife to cut, and the comfort matches the look of the knife. Now I have a hard time choosing between this or my favorite petty knife, which isn’t something I thought would happen.
In conclusion the knife is good overall and has a nice shape and look to it. I just wish that the knife would have had some better quality control.
Great workmanship and a beautiful Damascus pattern.
Got another beautiful blade to give as a Christmas gift
Great knife. Love it
