Pros: Blade Sharpness, Weight, None
Cons: Finish, Sheath/Scabbard
Good chunk of steel, but poor finish
I bought this as an introduction to coated high carbon blades that could be used for bushcraft. Don't take this knife casually, it is a big chunk of steel and thick. This was perfect for the purpose, because it was intended for being used as a chopper, batoning, carving, but not fine carving knife. It would not be bad as a single purpose knife, but it's thick for fine carving. This is the second or third one sent from knife center, since all had incomplete coverage of the knife by the coating. The handles don't fit well, but can be sanded to fit better. It does some chopping well, but the first time batoning some small firewood, there are some chunks taken from the back of the blade, and most of the finish is gone. I took pictures, but can't add on this site. The edge bit really well, it was easy to guide through the wood and the edge is still very sharp, which is surprising because the back of the blade is so damaged. Unfortunately, the sheath is at best an afterthought. I traded for an esee model 5 sheath which fits pretty well and can be improved by heating. I am almost certain it would fit the Hedgehog esee sheath without a problem. At the current price of $88 with free shipping, it's a good buy for the purposes above, but I don't know if I would buy it over other an esee or other what I now consider to be higher end knives.
