Sturdy.Solid. Nasty. Lends itself to techniques that that straight blades are less effective at. I like it!

This a great knife. It holds a nice edge and is great looking. I glued a little wool felt in the sheath to make it fit a little tighter is all.

One of The ornamentation on the handle fell off after I dropped it on my driveway on accident, just need to glue it back on. I got mine sharpened and good god was it sharp, nearly cut my finger off with a stupid move on my part... Just need to glue it back on >__>

The knife itself is just fine, but the scabbard does not hold the knife properly. It is only loosely held.
