Posted By: JeffBought it because of the blade geometry: it's nothing short of brilliant. The knife itself is as rustic as they get, the blade being all bumpy from the hammer blows and the grind being uneven. That said, it is solid, and after an hour with a file and some sandpaper it was "hand-finished" as well.
In practice, it takes on a good edge, keeps it for a while, and works as the closest thing to "one knife to do it all" in the family kitchen. I wouldn't take it to work, or when cooking for a client, but at home it is real fun to use,
The bottom line is, there are far worse ways to spend $50.
