Posted By: KendallThis is my 4th hap40 knife and it does not disappoint. It's got the same great edge retention and it's sharp right out of the box. I always even out the edge because I don't like the asymmetrical grind and I'm left handed. Fit and finish is much better than the western handled knife and the handle has a better finish on it than my rough bunka of the same line. The knife does seem a bit short doesnt seem like a 2inch height and you really lose a lot of blade as ot curves up so your missing some knife but the steel really makes up for it. You can't beat the retention of hap40. All you have to do is occasually touch it with a higher grit stone, i just use my shapton 4000 glass stone, once you establish you edge and you talking a 6 month edge easily. I don't have a knuckle clearance problem with the height but I do havery smaller hands.
