Now that's a knife.
I laugh when i read reviews of people complaining of the finishes of their knives. If you've bought a knife and plan on using it, then the finish is the least of your worries. When i first received this knife in the mail, the handling from the factory to my mail box had the knife puncture the box & it rolled the tip on something hard. Rather than send it back for a new one that would probably get damaged the same way again, I opted to keep it and let it be. I've used this knife for batoning, chopping anything from tree limbs, cow and sheep bones, removing wood from my bows, and fine slicing. The company tempered this knife with a usable working edge that takes use & abuse and is easy enough to sharpen. I've long since sanded off the black powder finish since i live in the desert. No problems with the contured polypropylene handle. And the leather sheath is excellent. A very great bowie patterned knife built like a champ.
