Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Materials, None
Cons: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Nice blade, but horribly angled
Sweet blade, enjoyed everything about it except the blade. It was nice and really sharp. but was leaning around 10 degrees to the right, which I can live with, but found annoying to get used to.

Pros: None
Cons: None
I bought this one to replace another one that had been stolen out of my toolbox some time ago. This new one appears to be every bit as high quality as the one it replaced, a WW2 issue I believe. It's amazing just how many uses you can find for a stout bladed Bowie style knife.
