I wish I could have given this knife 5 stars, but unfortunately it arrived with some rust on the edge of the blade. Most of the rust I was able to remove with a diamond stone, however, the worst of the rust was at the very tip of the knife and was too deep for me to grind it off without changing the shape of the blade. I do not hold this against Atlanta Cutlery, as the knife was just not properly cared for by the maker. It was wrapped in some oil or grease of some sort but the entire edge just was not covered with it. Other than the rust, the knife has a great feel and balance in the hand, and the sheath seems to be of good quality. I look forward to using it, just wish it would not have been flawed right out of the package.
