I just received mine and its a very! handy little utility blade.
Ill be checking the RC on it next week when I go back south..but so
far..it sharpened as easily as D2 can be sharpened (expect to spend
some time getting a razor edge on it..crock sticks help)..but it came
reasonably sharp in a compact little Kydex sheath. Only issue I can
see..is the ball chain is a bit short and is of typically very light
duty construction. (Chinese)
Got a dog tag chain? Use it, or use a piece of 505 cord. Ill be
threading it with 505 cord
The sheath is slightly different than the one pictured...its square in
shape and only has (2) rivets in it..so it will hang at a very very
slight angle. Ill probably add another rivet so hangs vertically. A
5 minute job.
This will also make a very good "behind the belt" blade or "inside the
belt" blade, assuming your belt is at least 1.25" in width...as the
entire width is aprox 1 1/4" wide. It would work nicely if attached
to the back of a holster, rifle sling, etc etc as well. Probably 3oz
in weight at most..so it doesnt have a lot of mass.
Its not a "fighting knife" of any sort..but appears to be a well
designed, well thought out utility blade.
This is one of the sellers Ive done a LOT of business with over the
past few years and is very reputable, no..no issues noted. Delivery
time was about 15 days from China.
Check out the other auctions. Some very good blades can be found
there. And they also sell what Id call "prototype" blades...blades
from small makers that are trying to get into the market. Some are
quite good, excellent in fact..others...particularly those with finger
holes...not so good. Chinese have smaller fingers than we Americans
do..so several of them look good..but are too small in diameter to use
like a Krambit in my hands.
This blade/grip is big enough to get two fingers into, with the hook
being supported by the third. Quite comfortable in fact...and the
thumb rest is in the proper place.
Others that are quite good...
and one of my favorites
