For the price, you cannot beat the quality. I have the Heavy Duty model and it is great. The carbon Steel does require a little more maintenance but no problem. I like the sturdy plastic sheath.
- Price is excellent
- Stays aharp
I have two of the Heavy Duty version of this knife. I put one in the kitchen to test and one in the backpack to test on the trail.
The knife holds an excellent edge and I have sliced many a tomato, carrots, ham, hotdogs, etc in the kitchen. On the trail, I have batoned and cut 550 cord.
The Heavy Duty model has a thicker overall blade. If you are used to using stainless steel blades, you should put a patina on this knife because it is Carbon Steel (how to on youtube).
Finally, the regular version of this is probably a better kitchen knife and the Heavy Duty (HD) is better for the trail. For the price EXCELLENT KNIFE!
