Customer reviewsFirst it looks good and liked the price
OK I bought this for two reasons . First it looks good and liked the price, second I couldn t find any real info about it and it made me real curious. It arrived really fast and decently packaged. Now over all length is 8 3 8 with a 4 x 1 blade. Full tang and a solid bolster the thick junction between the handle and the knife blade which provides a smooth transition from the blade to the handle so blade, bolster, and tang are all one. Came out of the box with a nice sharp edge and it could be a hollow ground but to my eyes it looks more like a saber grind. Time will tell if the laser etching stays visible. there is no jibbing or a stamp on the blade at all. The handle looks great with a tight almost seamless look between material transitions. Brass pins and lanyard hole. Now the handle had some sharp edges and one of the pins was a bit rough. Some wet-n-dry sandpaper used wet fixed it up and now is very comfortable in the hand. I haven t had a chance to get this out in hills yet but my guess is the handle might get slick so I will be adding some jibbing. The sheath is made of 1 8 thick leather and feels a bit flimsy but it does fit the knife well and rides nice on the hip. The snap is an easy one hand draw and replace, again time will tell but I think it ll last for some years I ll probably tool it to compress the leather and extend it s life of abuse that it will no doubt see I still have know idea of where this knife was made I did see it mentioned in a forum Alice G of USA but all in all I like this knife, had I not needed to sand the handle and pins to my taste and the sheath had been just a bit more rugged this would of been a five star blade for sure
