Pros: Blade Material, Handle Material, Finish
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Beautiful Blade, awful sheath
My wife gave me this knife for Christmas 3 or 4 years ago, and I love the knife. The fit and finish of the knifes itself is equal to custom work from a good Smith, which, ask I understand it, this essentially is. The sheath, sad to say, is another story. I carried the knife for a couple of months (at most) before the belt loop for the sheath broke off. Rather than using a Tec-Loc for the belt attachment, which would have cost them $15, they simply folded over part of the rear panel of the sheath to make a loop. This quickly stretched out of shape, and broke off in a couple of months. Recently, I bought a large Tec-Loc that fits the unbroken part of the sheath, though that was a near thing. The knife itself is top quality, and worth the $325, but the sheath is not worthy of the blade. If they'd just done this right to begin with, and used the Tec-Loc, I'd give the knife five stars without hesitation . but I feel that withthem falling down on the job this badly with the sheath, I just can't rank it that high.
