Solid knife you can rely on5 December 2018This is one hefty knife, nicely weighted to assist with chopping and razor sharp straight out of the box. The handle is rounder than I am used to, however it still has enough shape and plenty of grip so it won't roll in the hand, even when wet. The knife is a really great shape, definitely the widest blade I own but that appeals to me, it's a unique look. The coating is really tough, I've been batoning a lot of timber with this thing and it takes all the punishment I can give it without showing much wear. The blade is maybe a little short for batoning big stuff, but I've managed just fine. All in all a good purchase and I'd easily recommend it
