Nice knife, have not used it yet. The handle seams a little short. I'll try it out this fall. I have it really sharp and will see if it holds an edge.
I bought this as a gift for my dad who has always wanted a handmade knife but has never bought one. He loved it. He was so excited when he opened it and walked around showing the knife to everyone at his party. It was really cool.
Just got mine in yesterday, the blade is beautiful and has no major flaws. The build is very solid, it was dull out of the box but the bevel was fine and it took an edge pretty quickly.
My only qualms were in the fit and finish. The scales aren't sized properly to the handle so the spine protrudes a bit, some sharp edges on the exposed bits of tang and on the pins. A few more passes on the grinder though and this knife would be flawless.
Overall a great knife, it just needs some work and a bit more attention to detail.
Love the size and the blade look. I ve been using it to process fatwood kindling and its doing a great job. I did have to contact the company about the sheath coming apart and they are sending me a new sheath (thank you)
