The blade is very beautiful, with the Damascus steel looking unassailable. The blade is not very sharp, so this would need to be worked. The handle feels extremely nice in the hand, and the size of this thing is perfect. This knife has a genuine exotic quality about it which I was not expecting. The leather sheath is substantial. This is clearly the knife the Head of the Tribe would be carrying!! I just hope our troops and CIA personnel are properly equipped to respond!!
However, I'm not sure how long this knife will last for the Tribal Chieftan. The brass hilt is roughly finished and discolored. In fact, I wonder whether it is pure brass or merely brass-colored?? More disturbingly, there is a hard clear glue material which has been obviously compressed out of the handle and remains dried all over the hilt. Was the blade merely glued into the handle?? There are no pins or other indicia that the blade runs all the way through the handle and back to the to the pommel, which had been my presumption.
What takes this knife even further down to the realm of cheap import store fare is the cracked antler (or possibly some other kind of material; they are painted black) rings on both sides of the main antler handle. There's all kinds of cracking on these, and this really detracts and reveals the knife as being very poorly made. Apparently they used antler or bone, or something, which had not been properly dried. I am wondering if I can apply some type of coating to fill in those cracks?? It doesn't appear that that the material is about to fall apart and out of the handle, but the cracks are very conspicuous and sloppy. They run jaggedly around the entire handle on both sides; I can find no consoling aesthetic in them at all.
This is yet another one of those imports that comes close to being great, and with just a little more effort would have been. I'm not sure if I'll send mine back or not. I wish I knew how the blade was implanted in the handle. If it is just glued, which would be preposterous in terms of quality, the blade will be ripped from the handle at the first stabbing into something hard. If it is full tang with an implant into the pommel, then I might feel a little more secure that this is a genuine and usable weapon. The problem is I just can't make this determination from visually inspecting it. What I can see, makes the entire knife seem dubious.
This knife is probably best designated as merely primitive decorative fare, but it is decorative only so long as you don't look too closely.
Though a bit crooked, the knife feels sturdy in the hand, and the steel itself is worth the 50 or so dollars.
