VERY nice knife. About a perfect size for general use. Nice geometry. Sheath was better quality than expected. Why not a 5-star review? Couple of minor details... 1) It's from China. 2) Came sharp, but the edge was coarser than I expected. A few minutes with a fine, then extra-fine, stone - and a leather strop - made the edge mirror-smooth. 3) The handle is too smooth - I will probably get some sandpaper and coarsen-up the handle surface. And maybe Dremel(R) in some jimping for the thumb.
