Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Edge Retention!
When I got this knife over a year ago the edge was razor sharp. The edge was slightly convex and although razor sharp, it lacked the bite to perform a push cut through news paper; so I took it to the stone and flattened out the bevel... and oh man! You would not believe how sharp this knife is... hands down the sharpest knife I have ever held! Plus the edge retention is perfection! Since I changed the convex edge to a flat edge over a year ago I have not sharpened it since! It will still push cut through news paper on ever single spot on the edge. If your thinking maybe this knife has been babied, think again... I use this knife with a baton to process kindling and I have baton chopped through three inch limbs without any damage to the softer outer steel on the spine. I have pried with the tip and dug out holes in wood with no damage at all to the tip. Keeping in mind the primary design function for this knife and my personal primary use for this knife - carving/whittling and in that area this knife truly excels. I carve with this knife pretty much daily. The handle causes no fatigue, even when using it literally all day. I could go on and on about this knife but to sum it up the three highlights for me are : 1. Edge Geometry/Cutting Performance. 2. Sharpness. 3. Edge retention.
