I ordered this knife sharpened from the website. Overall the knife was built well and the sharpening was well done, but the finish work on the tang, handle, and back of the blade was sloppy. The blade was polished and true, but with a few grind marks left on the back. The edges of the tang were roughly ground and the end of the tank and the wooden handle were not cut or ground evenly. The guard at the front of the handle was shaped well but unpolished and scuffed. A weld point at the guard and front of the tang also could use some grinding. Since the knife itself was true, the steel and handle of good material, the blade well-made, and the problems cosmetic (and fixable), I give this knife four stars.
OH MY GOD THIS KNIFE IS AMAZING. Its so strong yet light it actually outchopped and out batoned my laredo bowie. It just goes through even insanely hard wood like nothing. This has got to be one of the greatest purchases I have EVER MADE there is truly no downside to this knife that I can think of. Also the handles are rounded to they wont hurt like a coffin handle does.
