Very nice for price
I have two reaper, one with ghost camo the other black handle. The knife (ghost camo) is the one I've been using thus far and am impressed in the performance for this blade. Thought being hollow ground, rather thin blade, and 420hc steel (I know buck 420hc is exceptional from years of past use)(but still) would make knife weak for its intended "purpose". I have my fair share of American steel from esse,kabar and Ontario, benchmade, shadow tech blades! I like hard use high value blades made HERE in good ole USA. My son and I took turns chopping on various cedar, pine, oak limbs for clearing overgrowth for hours one day to really test the edge ability,......surpassed my expectations it stayed amazingly sharp for the steel, No chipping,No rolling, just a minute on ceramic crock it was as sharp or sharper then new. Now if we can only get buck to use better steel with their heat treat and they would be hard to beat for good USA made knife.
