Purchased two of these for a period Gilbert/Nash musical. And they are perfect!

Bought one of these: The finish is not that good - the handle is a bit asymmetric in its shape which, of course, can be expected at this prize range and is forgivable. The blade quality, however, is very bad for any kind of knife. When I slightly bend it to test its flexibility, it stays bent, and by "bending slightly" I mean 5-7 degrees. If I do this to the Cold Steel Kudu (bought elsewere) or any other folding knife I own, the blade returns to its former state. No signs of bending. It seems the steel has not been tempered properly or not at all or the steel quality itself is not suited for knives. Perhaps the poor quality adds to the fact that the blade quickly gets rough at the rivet, making it feel like the blade and the brass handle are tearing each other each time you fold or open it. Had the quality of the steel been better (i.e. like any other 440 stainless or better) I would have been pretty satisfied with this knife, if considering the prize and the fact that the handle contains real horn. Now it is regrettably not usable as a normal knife and the piece of horn used for the handle have been wasted when it could have decorated a fully functional, classic knife!
