What I Like About This Product:

Old Timer says it all!  It reminds me of the type of fixed blade knives that I had when I was a kid.  It has perfect balance, extremely attractive, very sharp out of the box and has a nice leather sheath for a very reasonable price.  Its nothing fancy, its just a great little knife.

What I Would Change About This Product:

The knife itself is really a nice knife but it comes with a leather landyard and that is not my style.  The minute I pulled it out of the box and saw the leather landyard, it had to go!  I untied the leather thong and off it came.  Some people my like them, I do not.  You might as what I have against landyards on a knife?  It’s just not my style.

The leather sheath is functional and will work, but I like Kydex sheaths for my fixed blade knives.  I think they fit your knife better and do not sweat like leather knife sheaths do.  I am trying to get setup so I can make my own Kydex knife sheaths, and when I do I will write an article about it.

Final Remarks:

As I said, this knife is nothing fancy, just a really good all around knife.  My favorite thing about this knife is it has a nice satin finish on the blade and that gets me every time.  Many people like the black finishes on their knife blades but not me. A satin finish makes the knife look much better to me. I guess you could say it really has a traditional style to it and that just makes the whole appeal of the knife come together.

This was one of the few knives that I did not have to touch up with my ceramic stone when I got it.  It was outrageously sharp right out of the box and the hollow grind on the 7Cr17MoV High Carbon Stainless Steel blade will hold up under high moisture environments very well and keep a very nice edge.

The Desert Ironwoon handle scales have a great look to this knife and they really feel good in your hands.  I got no hotspots when using this knife for an extended period of time. 

This 8″ overall fixed blade knife is a real “keeper” in my book and I highly recommend this knife as a great EDC knife.
