I bought 2 of this model and 2 butcher blade bayonets. They are solid and well made. The steel seems of good quality (though I'm not going to test them on a rock wall, but they look and feel as if that's the only way to break them). This model is not heavy or bulky, I think graceful is a good synonym. I wanted something that Bruce Willis would've chosen to go back into the basement to save Ving Rhames with in Pulp Fiction. Real, not a decoration.
