TRC did a fantastic job. The grinds on this knife are very precise, and it undoubtedly is a great blade to use in the field. The micarta finish is very grippy, but not too much so. The sheath fits well and seems sturdy. The knife came razor sharp out of the box, with a really nice polished finish over the entire blade. Shipping was very fast, as well. A+ for the maker and retailer.
