I bought this with the sharpened blade. I am very impressed with the dagger as a whole. This is clearly designed as a thrusting/stabbing type dagger, and although it is nicely sharpened along both sides the thick ridge in the center would probably provide significant resistance to any deep cutting from slashes or chops. But, that ridge also makes it a darn strong blade. Everything is solidly assembled with no wiggles and the dagger stays snugly in the nice sheath when not being used. I also really like the darkwood handle.
