Much better than my old one!
Fifty years ago, I purchased a carbon steel Japanese version. At that time, I did not realize it was a copy of this German made classic. Although still serviceable, I thought that I would be better served by a stainless version. I am thrilled at the quality of this product. Most stainless lockblade designs today have beltclips or other accoutrements that make them bulky and defeat the purpose of a convenient carry in an all-purpose knife. If this one is good for another 50 years, I will not be around to get full use of it, but it will be passed on to one of my kids.
