The weapon is feather light with a lovely wood handle. The action is so smooth I can flip it open by gravity. The blade takes a great edge.
This is the second knife I've purchased from Forseti, but it will not be the last.
I collect artisan hunting and fishing knives and the Forseti Turing Folding Knife is another fabulous addition to my collection. I intend to look into their other products in the next few months. I cannot recommend their craftsmanship and quick delivery any higher having received this knife within 4 days in the heat of the current pandemic we are experiencing. It actually cheered me up. Should come in handy!
I was extremely pleased on receiving my knife. This is my 3rd Forseti blade and I am quite happy with the blade and handle. The Damascus is tight and inclusion free, it came very sharp. I put it through several reasonable tests: cutting paper, boxes, whittling a wooden block, etc. passed with flying colors. It didn't lose much edge from the tests, but I resharpened it anyway, as I like my knives very sharp. It sharpened easily and has maintained sharpness through everyday carry and use for several weeks now. My only complaint (and this one is worth a star), is the locking mechanism is not as tight as I would like; the blade easily moves vertically about 1/32" and with a little force, moves horizontally about 1/64". This is fine for everyday cutting, but could be dangerous for life-threatening situations. This is a flaw I have found inherent in all knives with a flat metal thumb lever lock. I will continue to buy Forseti knives, but not their one-hand openers.
