This is a beastly heavy blade. I like it. The first third of the blade is for good thrust penetration,  The blade also has plenty of belly for slicing and skinning. Did not think much of the sheath at first.  However, after gluing piece of leather inside on the riveted side it tightened up a little.  I can tuck it into the sash of my frock coat and loop my possibles bag strap through it for comfortable carry. It sharpens well and does not dull appreciable even with repeated strikes on bone of deer or bear. Good for black powder hunting for the past 5 years. If you do not mind the weight it is a good out door knife.

I received this knife, last week.  It is a beautiful knife, with a good finish.  The only complaint that I would have, is that the brass was not cleaned up very well, and merged with the back of the blade, most likely, during the finishing or buffing process. That is the reason for the four star rating. Even though it came with a knife sheath, I purchased this knife to go into a knife sheath that I made for myself.  The dimensions that were given was the basis for ordering this particular knife.  It is a good rendition of a trade knife, and would work with any buckskin or cowboy outfit.  The scales were matched well and were finished, very well.  I am pleased with the overall purchase.  Since it was on back order, it was well worth the wait.  I am considering purchasing another one of these, before they are gone.

This is a beautifully finished knife, with good and tight fit of bolsters and scales to blade.
