Posted By: JamesI've had mine for about 4 years. The steel itself is very good. Not the hardest, and needs work out of the box, but it takes a Very nice edge, and is very easy to sharpen, and sharpen quickly. I have no complaints about the steel.
After 4 years, it's time to replace the handle. This is where the money was saved, the handle is cheap, and rather than a fully seated blade, they just drilled a hole to drop the blade into, and used a cheap 2 part brass rivet to keep it in place.
This isn't a down side for me. It's a surprising amount of knife, for short money. Now I'm shopping for a replacement handle, and I'm excite at the prospect of having the knife finally look and feel like the favorite workhorse that it is.
