Summary

Beautiful knife, very sharp out of the box. Fits like a glove.

Pros

  • Beautiful craftsmanship
  • Just the right size, handle and blade for everyday use
  • The leather case is great too.

Cons

  • Wood grain is not quite as exquisite as the picture on their website.

Good craftsmanship. Feels really good in my hand. Like the notched finger grip behind the blade. This thing is very sharp. I haven’t used it in the field yet, so thus the conservative 4 stars. Cuts my hard salami paper thin though!! 

The wood grain on mine wasn’t quite as nice as the demo picture. It comes with not much or no conditioning at all. I have been rubbing some teak oil on it and it's looking really nice now though. This will go on every camping trip with me, love this knife.

Experience

None, just got it recently.
