Still, it's a good design and sharpens well. I guess the steel is softer than I expected. Considering that it's one of only two full tang knifes from Helle I expected it to be tougher.
The knife blade is razor sharp OOTB. What I love about it is the blade shape. It's got a nice belly just behind the tip that I find very appealing. Sharpening the tri-laminate steel requires a bit more care. If you're a capable knife sharpener, it's not a big deal. If you're not, you may want to just strop it until you need it sharpened and then have a pro do it. If you intend to sharpen it, read the instructions so you don't ruin the blade. Even though the outer layer of the blade is stainless, I don't think the high carbon steel core of the tri-lam is. So, you need to keep the blade oiled and dry.
The sheath is fairly nondescript but elegant. It's double stitched with high quality thread and looks good. You may feel like the leather is a bit thin. Here in the US we tend to like thick leather for sheaths. I don't really have a preference. You'll need to waterproof it with silicon seal, oil, or wax. The leather is finished but isn't waterproofed due to so many individual preferences regarding sealing the leather. That's pretty common. The stitching stops short of the tip but the hole is sealed with glue. I prefer a hole to let water out. I suspect that's going to be difficult to fix if you want to do it without causing visible damage to the sheath's tip.
I won't use my Eggen for bushcrafting because it's too beautiful and I don't want any damage. This one I have mixed feelings about. I bought it because of the full tang construction and durability. But, I don't think I'm going to put this in my car for all-purpose ugly work. I'll probably take it hiking and camping.
You can not strike a ferro-rod using this knife. I always have a striker so not a big deal for me. That may drive you barking mad.
Word to the wise: I paid only a bit more for this knife than the Eggen, right around $120 USD, because I shopped around.
