"Nice design that seems like a light weight Kukri blade profile combined a little with a Smatchet, the whole thing also reminding me of a leaf shaped blade. Maybe a bit too light to replace a hatchet or a machete, but it has some degree of military tactical use. I could criticize a few minor things: The handle initially felt a bit slippery compensated by a good shape avoiding any hot spots if used for light chopping, the blade is more of a slicer to me than a chopper. The false edge is sort of unsharpened very close to butter knife sharp but can be sharpened with minimal effort with the right tools or skill set. The cut out for the choil is a bit too narrow for chocking up on the blade, and this could also be easy enough to modify. Oh, I don't know how durable the black finish is like because I removed it with paint remover revealing a subdued grey finish under the black. Note: The signature on one side and the GUNNY APPROVED lettering where not affected by removing the black finish since it seems to be etched directly on the blade and are not some cheap stick on or painted on top of the black finish ..... Removing the black finish was a personal choice, but for collecting purposes I would leave the knife as it arrived in the box. Overall I'm very happy with the knife although there are a few small design issues that would make it go from a 5 to a 6! Oh, before I forget the blade edge was scary shave sharp out of the box." - Jean (5/5)
