Extreme satisfaction followed by extreme dissapointment.
on February 22, 2012
This is a gorgeous knife. As soon as it arrived I was in awe of it. I also love the handle, it fits in the hand very well, and lets you grip outside of the danger zone of the backside of your knife. The blade is razor sharp, I have no doubs that a fast swing could cleanly remove a finger (bone included).
Now to the dissapointing part of this knife. After only having the knife for about a week, I was cleaning it and tapped the side of my sink. Not hard, not even enough to make me take a second look at the knife. Then when I put it up I saw it, the tip bent, not bad, but enough to notice. Having a lot of experience with knives, I just kind of frowned and give it a light push back into place. With almost no force applied the tip snaps off. Now I'm officially upset, for a knife of this price I expect much more. Again, I shrug it off becaause it's nothing I can't have ground down. Now I'm treating the knife with kit gloves, not even so much as washing it with a rough sponge. Everything went well for about another week. Then without cause I notice the tip has begun fragmenting off. Now it's in too bad of shape to be fixed and will soon be unusable.
I sincerely pray that there was a defect in the making of the blade because I do want to give these guys another try, I absolutely love the look, feel, and function of this knife; but be warned, handle this knife like it's piece of antique china.
