This is my 4th MKC blade, having tested out a Blackfoot 2.0 on a spike elk, lightly using a Speedgoat for a while, and more recently purchasing a Stonewall Blackfoot Skinner which I hope to test out this fall on deer and elk. I had been wanting a fillet type knife for a while for use as my "bird and trout" knife and deboning applications, so based on my experience with my other MKC blades jumped on the opportunity for this Flathead fillet. This blade came razor sharp, great blade profile, and I think the best fitting sheath out of my set of MKC knives. So far I've only broken down a whole chicken with it which worked wonderfully. It was still hair popping sharp immediately after the chicken, and I managed to inadvertantly slice my finger a little rubbing some wax on the blade for storage. Going to be doing some trout fishing this week and have it packed and ready to go! This and my Stonewall are in the orange and black which is a fantastic color.
