Nice kniv

I am satisfied with the knife, good quality in this price range. Sharp, cuts well, nicely crafted handle. I don't know how well it holds its edge yet, but I suspect it will continue to improve after I use it for a while.

Solid knife

I've had the knife for a few months now and it works great. I got it to be a go-to knife in place of some other knives that felt too light. The balance is good, edge retention is pretty good as well, and personally I like the rougher look. Although the edge retention isn't perfect, for the price it's probably the best you're going to get. Some reviews on other sites mentioned it being difficult to care for due to the carbon steel, but I haven't had any issues. A thin coat of oil after washing takes about 10 seconds to put on and that's all the extra maintenance you need. It's nothing crazy or innovative but just a reliable workhorse at a great price that does its job well.
