The first time this knife made an appearance, someone asked me, "What the heck is that?" My response was, "This Is Freedom and it's going to make you dinner!" I can say that this knife is a serious vegetable chopper and it feels good in the hand. The blade sure doesn't slip and slide on an onion skin! It shows that onion who's boss and makes quick work of it! Smart not to get too excited because it's sure to eat fingers as well so exercise serious caution in maneuvering and washing. Handle is a bit on the slick side when dry so consider that in wet conditions as that could influence grip. Blade width is substantial and full tang for reliable wedging in the field. Top shelf materials and a sleek appearance make this knife a proud addition to have at camp. Must admit that I wasn't so sure about having a sheath that is leather but I have really grown to like it! There's actually a moving slide belt loop and the piece to which it is attached will also act as an ample belt loop if a person wishes to wear it a little higher on the hip. The sheath stitching and finish are excellent. The knife fits securely inside and it absolutely will not fall out when slung around upside down. So, if you need to make any quick moves, rest assured your knife won't levitate. Not cool to have to snatch your hat back from some wise guy to find your knife has abandoned you too! Take "This Is Freedom" out for a spin the next time you go camping! It's sure to liberate that chore list with ease!
