Kanetsune is a respected name in the blade world. Overall, this is a nice, quality knife. I have only tested it against strong cardboard and slicing very thin sheets of paper: it passed both tests well. That said, I would point out the following features that a prospective buyer might want to know: the picture for this knife makes it look bigger than it actually is. This is a small knife; the specs are correct so you need only take a measuring tape to get an accurate picture. It appears to be a half-tang handle, although secured with two pins. Very nicely balanced at the hilt and light weight. The leather straps and metal fittings on the scabbard are of light-grade quality. Without further field testing (camping, hunting, etc) I cannot address durability. However, for under $90, this is a decent little piece. For over a $100, especially over $125, one can probably do better if interested in a larger, durable survival type blade.

I wouldn't call this knife rough, but rustic. The blade is amazing and extremely sharp. The handle is simple and unique compared with most other knives. So far it has functioned flawlessly. The setup has not loosened. I have zero negative experiences with this product.

Japanese bladework is a highly developed craft with an ability to not only create an object but a symbol with layers of meaning, some obvious, some occult... if we take the ancient Shinto roots to heart...this object can even be said to have a soul. While the combat blades, particularly the Tanto design get more press, there are other Japanese crafted, well designed blades such as kitchen knives, saws and in this design, a sturdy survival knife.

The first look we get at the knife, presented out of the box is of a blade and handle juxtaposed with a block of wood. This simplicity, this physical manifestation of the Taoist recrimination which famously states that the "uncarved block of wood, has infinite meaning expressed by the pieces cut from the wood" demonstrate to us what the craftsman is expressing: indeed, upon closer inspection we see such features as elaborate wood fittings in the block and a smooth unlaquered polishing in keeping with a simple, elegant design. Likewise the saber like thumb guard gives way to a blade which shows us with no bashfullness....first, a rough hewn backside, then a worked hammon line and finally a polished blade. These 3 states communicate the inherent sturdeness of the blade, from fire quenched, rough hewn metamorphosis, to gilded, polished blade edge.

This knife is small but weighty, sturdy and beautiful upon a careful inspection. The natural unlaquered, smooth wood surfaces are elaberately & expertly fitted, with a sturdy leather strap.....and it is this strap where the craftsman playfully deviates from such circumspect simplicity of design. The smell of the leather strap, the way it has two seperate buckles, which carefully fit around a wooden fitting for the straps....
