Great classic style blade

The grind was very slightly uneven at the tip and handle is a little blocky. That is honestly the only negative things I could come up with. The design is executed to perfection. Holds an edge just as well as any other 1095 blade. The steel is exactly the thickness you need for a knife to take a little abuse but still slice with ease. You get a lot of knife for the price. Especially considering how much other roach belly knives sell for, if you can even find them. Can’t say enough good things about it.

Love it

Love this knife, feels really good in my hand. Good strong straight blade, and solid handle. Sheath fits knife really snug. I asked if a left handed sheath could be made and they jumped right on it. Top notch company. Would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you

Decent knife

It's a $40 knife. Rugged and historically accurate. Mine came with two minor issues, one cosmetic, the other less so. First, spots if bright red rust on the edge. This could have happened in transit, and really a tiny issue, easily fixed. Second, the point if the knife is slightly off center a few degrees due to a bow in the blade. This keeps one from slicing accurately. I can work around it, but I feel the quality control could be tighter. Took off a star for that. Otherwise, I'm happy with it.
