Pros: Finish, Overall Quality, Materials, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Blade Material
Not a low maintenance blade
First I would like to say, I have owned the black model for about a year now, and I love it. For the price, you can't beat it.I will advise anyone looking at this knife, to perches the satin model, for sheath and finish.I had to have a custom sheath made for my knife, and it scraped up the handle.Also the finish on the blade does not hold up well.A common denominator for the cons side is the metals used don't like to hold an edge well,do to the curve of the blade it is a little difficult to sharpen, so I can not be certain that I am just not sharpening it properly, however I am consistently having to sharpen the knife once per week or two.I may have a lemon I don't know, I did thorough research to the quality of this knife before hand, I just want to make sure anyone who is looking at this blade is thoroughly aware of what they are getting into, this is not a low maintenance blade, but it is worth the time and effort.
