Pros: Design, Construction, Material Quality, Sharpenability, Overall Quality, Durability
A couple of things about this knife: 1) it does not come sharp, 2) it will rust if you don't take care. Guess what? That is perfectly fine, because: 1) you sharpen it to your satisfaction. Use a stone, sandpaper, ceramic or diamond stick, accusharp, whatever. Once you get it sharp, you'll know how to keep it sharp. 2) Dry your knife after you wash and use it. Good carbon steel is easy to sharpen and keep sharp. This knife will serve you well for years if you do your part. I purchased this knife as a starter for a bushcraft knife. Its strong but simple construction is well suited for this type of modification. I was able to shorten the blade to 4.5" and round off the handle with only hand tools in an afternoon. I am very happy with the end product. I thank Ontario for putting out this product, and would gladly buy another.
