Razor Sharp - Tough - Quality Masterpiece!
This knife is unique in many aspects and is very well made. Knife came razor sharp with a quality sheath which has a intricate Japanese design embroided on it, (which looks great and enhances its collectability). Balance of this knife is superb. The ergonomic handle just feels so right. Unboxing this beauty was a sight to behold as my mates were in total awe at the quality, design, weight, balance, sharpness, and feel of this knife in their hands also. The VG-10 laminated San Mai steel is a great choice for this knife. The stamped pattern in the steel and etched Japanese characters really make this knife stand out. Great belly on the blade makes this knife a monster slicer. Blade thickness is thicker than I could have ever imagined. Knife is authentic Japanese made highly crafted well thought out and designed quality unit, which could easily be used for hunting. I can not find anything negative to say about the knife or sheath as the quality is remarkable. I definately recommend this knife to those who really appreciate top quality and value.
