I’m a sucker for stacked leather handles and the Recon has a great one. Fits my large hands very well. The blade is nicely ground, although I did feel the need to strop up the edge. The amazing thing is how light the blade is. You won’t know you are carrying it. Nice blade either for use, or your collection. No, I wouldn’t baton through a log with it, but any other cutting chore would be fine. The sheath is well made, slim, and unobtrusive.
