|I have done alot of research on this knife, as well as pricing, and Cheaper Than Dirt cannot be beat. Not by Amazon, or any other website.
The knife is very comfortable in the hand, the diamond and slit patterned handle will not slip out of your hand when wet, and the handle is a hard tough plastic that will not scratch or show much wear at all.
the blade is super super sharp. I cut myself with it already (only had it for a day now) and the serrations are great for cutting rope or cord. you can choke up on the blade to the center arch to carve on something, and that works very well. the blade is made of AUS 6 steel, which is from what I have heard to be very good, not the best, but enough to what I would use it for.
Water beads off of the blade when wet, and the only thing that would rust would be the exposed metal at the very edge of the blade, which repels water very well so that doesn't really matter.
so far I am really pleased with this knife!|
