I wanted a nice knife since I wanted to use it for work
on February 22, 2017
This is my first EDC knife. I wanted a nice knife since I wanted to use it for work. The first thing I noticed about this knife is how incredibly light it is. It doesn't bulge in my pocket which is nice. I was using just a box cutter before I got this so I guess anything would probably be more sleek than that. I like the balance of the knife and I like how it fits in my hand. I would love to give this knife a better score. Trouble is, I spent 180 dollars on this thing and within a week of having it, I noticed the blade already had a very small chip in it. I had only used this knife to cut cardboard and tape so I can't imagine it was something that I did. The chip was so small I didn't think much of it even though it did bother me. After a month though, I found that the knife barely cut through cardboard without effort. I had heard that these knives, although they hold an edge well, do not come very sharp from the factory. I think I can attest to that. I will probably just have to sharpen the knife myself and get an edge that is respectable. I wish I didn't have to do that though to a knife I spent a decent chunk of change on. Not to mention that it seems this particular steel really takes some time to sharpen. Oh well, maybe I got a lemon. Still love the style of the knife. I hope my experience improves.
