I always buy a few knives to give away at Christmas to friends that appreciate such gifts. It was a pleasant surprise to find this little gem on the Atlanta Cutlery site for a very reasonable price. The form, fit and finish were excellent as is the balance. M-Tech is starting to impress the heck out of me. I would happily give them a 5 star rating except that they only furnish a nylon sheath. If this Tanto had come with a kydex sheath, it would be 5 stars all the way down the line.
