Good stuff, the only practical flaws i see are the sharp plastic pieces on the ends of the handle and the old type needlessly thin tang, same width as the short miniature version i also got Very sharp, better higher grind than my old kraton handle, leather feels good and smells interesting
I received this beautiful blade as a gift from my girlfriend upon graduation from Radiology School. My jaw dropped. This blade is incredible! I have been a woodsman all my life and am very meticulous with the edges on my blades, so I cant say that the knife was all that sharp when I received it. However, I can say that the blade is taking on an incredible edge and holding it. I am impressed with the heft and balance of the knife and the stacked leather handle provides an excellent grip. The blade is hard...very hard. However, I have been able to make good progress with the edge with a hard Arkansas stone. The knife has slight flaws on the edge grind, but I believe that I will easily work through these with my stones in the next 3 months or so. Don't let that statement deter you. As Ive said, I am meticulous with the edges on my blades. I have an extensive collection of high-end knives. It is not uncommon at all for me to spend a year or more perfecting an edge. I have been working with this blade for about 4 weeks now and believe I can have the edge on it that I want in another 3 months. So, that should give you and idea of how small the grind flaws were. I appreciate the recognition of service in the military that this blade affords and I feel honored carrying it. I am a U.S. Navy veteran. I served aboard the USS Archerfish. I would like to extend a special thank you to Ka-bar for their recognition to veterans such as myself. You have honored us!
