This knife is everything I hoped it would be. It’s lightweight, the scales are grippy and the steel is super sharp. The steel is also very easy to maintain since it dulls rather quickly. The blade is off center however that is by design since the knife only has one washer. Out of the thousands and thousands of knives on the market this is one of the few that gets a pass for having an off centered blade.
