Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Sheath, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
I just purchased this blade from knifecenter.com... they had it to me in 3 days! Great service. Anyways, the knife is great. It's got some good weight to it, it was shaving sharp out of the box, and is just fun to look at and hold. I have used it for cutting up and shaving some sticks to use for making smores and it did the job perfectly. I also lent it to my friend at his wedding when the cake knife was missing. That's right, this knife is classy enough to cut the cake at wedding receptions as well as handle camp chores (although I wish I was carrying my Down Under Outback Bowie at the time as I would have loved to see it cut the cake!). The leather sheath is great and the opening, closing, and locking are great as well. There are some minor imperfections: uneven sanding on the wood plates, 50th anniversary emblem not centered all the way in its spot, uneven button on the front of the sheath, minor grime on the blade when first opened. If these were addressed, the knife would be perfect. However, for the price, you just cannot beat this quality. I love this knife.
