Swedish steel
I allways carry a Eka 7. It´s allmost the same but 1cm shorter blade and a handle with a hole for rope. I opened a deer last month and the knife worked fine. The blade lock is strong but not enough for shopping wood by hammering on the blade, on the other hand is this knife not really asking for those kind of tasks... A few tips that I did is: Polish the blade to mirror shine, so much easier to clean. Take an old leather belt and put some polishing creme on and work it, it´s not as much work as you think. Put some oil on the handle and it shines and darkens a bit, AND repells water. I used cocked linseed oil and therpentine 70/30 mix and rubbed it in with 0000-steelwool maby 10 times and let it set for a day between, but that´s me...

Robust Elegance
A great practical folder that is elegant but won't shy away from proper work. A little heavy for suit pants; perfect for jeans. Quality and design is apparent. The folks at EKA know what they are doing
