    Great EDC Knife. Extremely Sharp Out The Box So Be Carefull….Unlike Me., December 7, 2014

    Nice design and feel. Blade is EXTREMELY sharp. I’ve never seen a blade with that fine of a edge straight out the box. The tip is needle sharp as well. So what did I do… I started doing knife tricks with it…dropped it…and I got stabbed in the leg in a attempt to stop it form hitting my foot. It went in a good half inch just from it falling down. Hit my leg right above my knee, and it started gushing. Ruined my pants. My sis took pics. Could of used a couple of stitches but its healing up fine.

    Good if you can’t afford another knife…, January 15, 2016

    While this knife is inexpensive, and it’ll cut things relatively well, you should understand that this blade holds an edge about as well as a plastic knife. If you intend to use this knife, even as an EDC knife, you’ll probably be sharpening the thing every couple of days making it only a real option for people in poverty.

    The blade steel that people have claimed here is 440A, but oddly enough, my blade simply says ‘stainless steel’, making no mention of the type. I’m not sure if they simply stopped putting the type on there for fear of people learning it’s 440A or what the reason may be, but I hope, for the love of god, that they didn’t use 420 Stainless or something similar, as these are poor knife steels, making them soft and terrible for holding an edge. If you want a better knife at a reasonable price, check out this knife (not available on amazon: http://www.knifecenter.com/kc_new/store_detail.html?s=SCHA5&

    If you want to know more about knives, here’s a good resource detailing most everything you’d ever need to know about them: http://apg2k.hegewisch.net/blade_steel.html

    Pros: Cheap, sort of cuts things, looks nice enough, has a tanto blade (looks nice until that secondary edge gets worn down), decently long blade

    Cons: Poor steel, can’t hold an edge for very long, doesn’t come very sharp

    Sharp and useful knife. Mine broke after 5 months but didn’t lose sharpness., February 20, 2017

    Great knife while it lasted. I used it mostly to open coffee bags (the big burlaps used to hold green coffee seeds) from June of 2016 to November of 2016. It cut through the stitching on the top of the bag, which is great because then I don’t have to cut into the bag itself, which means if I see a bag I like (like the last Uganda Ekende I received), I could save it and frame it.

    The knife was sharp and kept it’s sharpness until nearly the end of its lifecycle. Around November, I was using it to cut through some tape from a hot cup lid box and the knife snapped backwards towards the top of my palm ( it went past the roughly 180 degree mark towards the area between my thumb and index finger). I wasn’t hurt.

    I guess you could chock it up to negligence on my part. There were several instances, one was about a month into having purchased the knife, when I noticed tiny screws falling out and I never replaced them or put them back on because the screws are so small I had no tools that were small enough to do the job.

    I’m gonna try another knife to be fair and compare, but if I don’t like the other knife, this one may just have to be repurchased. Hope the next one last s at least more than half a year.
