I was very impressed with the quality for the price. I like the weight of the blade and the feel of the handle. It was very sharp right out of the package. I have yet to use it to know how sharp it will stay but, I think it will sharpen well when it does dull. I will probobly order more from OKC. Shipping was fast too.
