I bought this knife primarily for the upgraded handle and sheath. If you're looking for a lower priced knife for kicking about in the woods you may want to consider Case Knives 18336 Ridgeback Hunter Fixed Blade Knife with Camouflage Zytel Handles; essentially the same knife but possibly more practical in field as the nylon sheath and zytel handle will probably hold up better to the weather.
The two minor flaws. The leather sheath has an internal plastic scabbard and it is sometimes difficult to re sheath the knife. Even after repeated practice, the blade sometimes get hung up. If you remove the plastic scabbard, the blade will bounce around too much and the knife can more easily fall out of the sheath. This really isn't a big deal but if you're buying the knife, you should know about it before hand.
The gimping on the top of the blade is very deep and is rougher than I'm used to. On the bright side, it will even work when you're wearing gloves.
Otherwise, the knife is what you expect from Case. It is well made, with an excellent finish. The full tang blade is nicely polished and razor sharp. It made with Case's Tru-Sharp Surgical steel which is about the same as Buck's 420HC steel. I'd love to see the knife made with CV (maybe a future Case Release). The handle is well pinned with brass rivets and smoothly polished. The tang, handle and rivets are all smooth and the fit is near perfect.
The leather sheath, is well stitched top quality cow grain leather. The Case logo is deeply embossed and a nice touch. It is leaps and bounds ahead of any so-called top-grain leather sheath I've seen that were "globally imported. The photos do not really do justice the dying and polishing of the sheath. It was built to last and will hold up well in the field or on the trail.
Despite two very minor flaws I'm still feel this a "5 Stars" knife. I mentioned the flaws so you can make up your on mind. In my view, the knife is definite keeper and will please both the collector as well as the outdoors-man/hunter. I suspect it will last long enough to be past down from father to son. It is hard not to give five stars for that kind of quality.
Searching reviews on this knife, about the only complains I found was that the ridges were a little too rough. While field dressing, this was well appreciated. The second complaint was the "full tang" metal seen between the handle is not polished all the way around. These are not worth one less star.
I am impressed by the shape of the blade while dressing the deer. I like the sheath and am glad to see, from what I can gather, a high end leather composition. The blade "clicks" in. I do wish there was a strap/buckle for more security. Not worth a dropped star.
I highly recommend a fixed blade knife for field dressing. Keeping a blade's mechanics is nearly impossible so a fixed blade is quite necessary in my field bag.
Of the fixed blades, I couldn't be happier with the size and overall design of this knife.
I have only used this blade once and cannot speak to the way it retains an edge. If you are a hunter I highly recommend a bone saw for the ribs, which will preserve this dressing/caping knife.
It is sharp out of the package. I did invest in some honing oil as well as a sharpening stone. With very little effort to sharpen, I easily shaved hair off my arm. (Not that I advocate buying this to shave your body). In the end, when you think of passing on a knife to your child or a gift to someone with a strong look and appeal of tradition, this is the knife. This is a modern day knife of yesteryear.
