Awesome knife that will last!-This knife is a beast.When I got my knife it needed a little bit of work to get the knife as sharp as I wanted, but it came with a decent edge. I have beaten this knife up on some backpacking outings and it has taken everything I can throw at it better than I could have ever expected. The kydex sheath could be better, but it will do for most. I am very picky with my kydex sheaths because I actually make kydex products. The only thing that I did to change it was to take down the upper edge so that when you grab the knife you are actually gripping the full knife handle and not the kydex. If you are looking for a knife that will take everything you can throw at it, definitely get this knife. I love it!”

Top rated critical review rated with 2-star by Garwood, a verified purchaser, as follows;

I was impressed with the edge that it came with and did not feel any need to refine it (if you are the type that wants a razor, it’s obvious with this blade it wouldn’t take alot (sic) for one to get it there). With simple sapling chopping and carving the edge did dull rather quickly. I do not misuse my knives but I do utilize them heavily within the arenas in which their use is intended and in doing so I have found constant re-sharpening is needed. My last outing I chipped the blade (quite ugly) about 1/32″ deep by 1/16″ long piece of blade broke off while processing a wild rabbit. Apparently the rabbits neck was to much (sic) for this blade (cotton tail, very soft bones). Yes I had the rabbit on a felled tree trunk so the damage absolutely came from the rabbits neck. I have had $15 dollar blades put through bones much tougher than rabbit and never chip? I indeed may (sic) have gotten a knife with a bad batch of 1095? Who knows! Though it is what it is = not good endurance. If I had to spend a week in the bush I would not have confidence in this knife but it looks great, well it will look great again once I grind the blade back to get the chip out! Not trying to talk anyone out of this knife and I’m not really regretting this purchase but I would not buy another one. I hope this helps, it’s not a BAD knife.”
