    I wanted to, but simply couldn’t give this 3 stars and feel ok about it, because its a tool and it must function as such, or its of no use to anyone. I know, it is a 10 dollar knife, but it goes for as much as 22 from some places. I love the look, size, shape, grind, the Micarta has a lovely velvet feel that is just delightful. The fit and finish is not good, but I would never complain about that at the price. I actually had to glue a loose scale, but again, not a big deal. The belt satin finish is nicely done. The thing that drops this knife from 4 stars (respectively) is the blade steel. I’ve used 420HC, but this is the first 420 stainless blade for me, and I swear, its worse than 3cr. It doesn’t just lose its edge; it barely takes one. I’m an experienced free hand sharpener, and I can achieve a shaving edge on my knifes from AUS 8 to Maxamet. Maybe I got a lemon with a trash heat treatment, because I have sharpened soft steels, and they actually get insanely sharp, but dull quickly. Not this guy. Even the excellent hollow geometry can’t save it. This one is gonna be a coin toss. If you’re buying it so you can get free shipping, ok sure. Otherwise, I say don’t bother. This knife seems to be super popular, but I just want my ten bucks back to spend on a new strop. Chicago Knife Works is THE BEST SELLER I’ve ever done business with. Do please buy here, you’ll be glad you did.

    The fit and finish were good. Will see how sharp I can get and how long it will hold an edge.
