I’m a bit of a knife fanatic and always looking for a quality handmade blade. This knife checks every every box. First thing I noticed upon receiving the blade was the packaging. The box is custom with official MKC logo. The blade itself is wrapped in a basic paper and hand tied with para-cord. The sheath is not just your standard Kydex sheath. It holds the blade secure and gives a nice “click” when sheathing. The blade itself is perfect. First thing I noticed was the weight. For the size and quiality I couldn’t believe how light it was. Fits perfect in the hand. I can’t wait to take it on my first elk hunt this November in Montana. Lastly, I chose the Black and Tan. Looks even better in person. If you want not only a quality knife but made in the USA, get yourself a MKC blade.
