Posted By: Tom CThis knife came very sharp, and after sharpening with a whetstone maintained an excellent edge well.
However, the handle materials are low quality, with soft wood for the handle and a plastic "bolster" that's just a cap over part of the handle. The plastic cap easily separates from the handle and slides around. Most concerning is that after regular use (~5 months), the blade came out of the handle without having been pulled apart at all.
For the price, this knife is a good deal even with the cheap handle. However, I would suggest replacing the handle, or looking into a different knife if durability is a priority.
