heres the beef
this is an excellent knife for the money, better than others costing 2 or 3 times as much. although these are production knives, they have the feel and finish of a custom. The steel is a heat/cryogenicly treated 440c, extremely hard. The canvas macarta slabs are (bead blasted?) not the polished variety, great feel even when wet. Great contours,a little handle heavy but its a small knife and has a very balanced feel.Not super sharp out of the box, but my sharpmaker took care of that, holds a nice edge. I rarely carry a fixed blade outside of hunting or camping but I carry this one. The kydex sheath fits the knife well, my only pick with this set up is the belt clip, this needs a little work, sometimes comes out with the knife. The finish on all the steel is bead blasted, nice, but I polished the spine and all around the tang, now its mine. Really nice little(3" cutting edge) camp/bushcraft/utility knife with plenty to hold on to. Good bang for the buck.
