I received this knife as a gift and wow! It’s a beast. It’s very well made and balanced. The D2 steel blade is burly without looking terrifying. It is extremely sharp right out of the box. It feathered and batoned wood easily. The slightly textured grip feels comfortable and secure in my hand. The handle length is the perfect size for me, although if you do have large hands the grip may be short for you. The ferro rod and striker are a nice addition to the knife. They throw some large, clean sparks. Everything fits into the Kydex sheath snuggly, no worries about anything falling out. This knife feels sturdy and wilderness tough. I can’t wait to take it out on camping trips.
This is a great value. First item I’ve bought from Holtzman’s but I can tell you there will be more. Knife is very sharp out of the box and I usually touch every blade up that I buy, even my Spyderco and Benchmades. Awesome package for any outdoorsman or survivalist. Ability to make a fire is 50% of surviving in the back country. This unit will not let you down.
