1. The tip is rolled back over the top of the knife making it useless.
2. The tip is ground off-center so that is almost in the middle of the right side of the blade instead of aligning with the intersection of the two sides where it would have support.
3. There is a very large burr on the right edge of the blade.
4. The finish of the surfaces and edges is terrible.
The quality of the knives received by other Amazon customers seems to vary from acceptable to terrible, like my experience. If you have the time and equipment you might be able to rework this marking knife into an acceptable product but again you might just want to look for a better product.
just get the kauhof Kaufhof AKS-6190 Striking Knife for Wood Scoring 5" Hardwood Handle HSS Hardened steel 1.5" Double-Edged Blade its only a little more expensive. and it literally cannot be worse. really, it's just not possible
What do I like about it? The handle size and shape are near perfect. The knife head is equal to the design of the handle - not too small and not too big. Also no flex to the blade.
What don't I like? The steel, which is supposed to be HSS (high speed steel), seems too soft. You can sharpen the knife easy enough, but the sharpness does not last. The point bends way too easily (in pine and poplar, when striking a line along a try square. When sharpening (used 2000 grit Sc paper, then tried a vintage washita stone and finally tried a hard black arkansas) the edge drew a huge burr on whatever method used, generally an indication of steel not being hardened or hardened/drawn back improperly.
As the knife was cheap enough, I will not return it, but use it for general purpose markings. However, I would not recommend that this tool be purchased as the maker seems to have very spotty or even missing quality control.
TL;DR -> tool is ok, but required a lot of work to get it in usable condition for the applications its intended. Don't buy if you want a good tool out of the box.
Arrived intact, in a cheap plastic sleeve, with a "tip protector" that was laughably irrelevant as the tool arrived about sharp as a spoon. I believe anyone that will use one of these tools will have the ability to sharpen it, but it was in pretty rough shape and took me a good hour to set the edges on both sides. Machining work is fine, and the tool itself is in largely decent condition, but the machining marks from where they "sharpened" it were so deep, I had to run a 120 grit stone over it for about 10 minutes on each side. I sharpened it all the way to 3000 grit, which is plenty sharp for this application. I probably wont run it over 1000 if I had to do it again. Slices through paper clean like a razor now, so thats good.
Lucky for me, I find sharpening tools relaxing and mindless, so its not a waste of money for me. I know most consumers will be displeased right out of the box.
