This is the perfection of American craftsmanship. You want to use this to skin a deer on your latest hunt? It will happen with ease. You like to hike and want a bit of a beefier blade by your side. Great, this is the one for you. You just want to open Amazon packages and cut up boxes for recycling. Perfect, this will blast through any task. In my opinion this is the perfect all around knife. It looks great, has one of the sharpest edges out of box I’ve ever felt, it’s weight is weight is deceiving and I expected it to be extremely heavy, it’s not. It’s light as can be an will make an excellent addition to any hiking pack. Mark my words, this is the last fixed blade I will ever buy.
