(Inner voice: "What the heck, it's eleven bucks.")
I have to admit ... when this knife was delivered I was very disappointed on a variety of counts. The grind was ridiculously poor. It was so crude with burrs that when I attempted to slice carrots with it, it was more of a saw than a knife edge. Further, the scales weren't even symmetrical; one was longer than the other.
(Inner voice: "Well, it was eleven bucks. Live and learn.")
I spent an evening in my chair observing it in my hands, turning it over and over and thinking.
(Inner voice: "Well, it IS 1095 carbon steel ... and after all it was only eleven bucks.")
That night, I wrapped it in paper towel and dowsed it with apple cider vinegar and then wrapped that in plastic wrap. I left it on the counter overnight to put a patina on the steel. The next morning when I unwrapped it, it was black with oxidation. A good wipe down left it an aged gray and looking much sweeter. After the wood had dried, I rubbed in some oil.
(Inner voice: "For eleven bucks, this thing is kind of cool now. I kind of like that the scales are uneven. It's ... unique.")
A few days later, I spent an enjoyable, slow, cathartic two hours with a two sided oil stone and put an edge on it that only 1095 carbon can brag about. When finished, it aced the paper and the hair shaving tests. I rubbed in a few more coats of oil into the scales, and then a light coating of oil on the steel. By then I had developed an odd affection, even a love affair with it. Sitting in my chair, turning it over and over again, I realized exactly why there were so many great reviews. It really is a good piece of steel; it's nostalgic-looking, crude but elegant, old-timey ... and it took me to get it to that state of grace.
(Inner voice: "I can't believe this great knife was only eleven bucks!")
Finally, I pulled the trigger and ordered the Ka-Bar 7" leather sheath for it, because any fixed blade you carry needs a good sheath.
(Inner voice: "I can't believe I paid sixteen bucks for a knife that cost me eleven bucks.)
Moral of the story ... for under twenty dollars, and if you are willing to make this into a real cutting tool, you too can discover the endorphin-producing euphoria of falling in love with an Old Hickory, and press it into service on your belt. Sure, it's no high dollar, exotic wood, custom made bush craft model (that you're almost hesitant to use because it's too pretty.) But, it's practical, it's sharp, it's made in the USA and it's all yours.
Outer voice: "And it's ELEVEN BUCKS."
I got the knife shaving sharp (my arm is just about bald now :) ), and it improved it's batoning capability quite a bit. It works almost as well as my Ontario SP-8, with a few more whacks to get through. Still, I only give it 4 stars for the fact that I had to spend quite a bit of time sharpening it. I don't think it would have even done well in the kitchen with as dull as it was out of the package.

I left it in the sink too long, my bad. Has some black staining now. Not a problem.Read more
