The Rescuer II is made as fine as they come. It's the first time I ever bought a knife and upon receiving it felt I had NOT paid enough for it. Rosarems has a quality control that takes their knives into another realm. It is an exquisite knife in every detail and with everything mirror polished. The handle is stacked leather rings (washers) and is very comfortable. The knife is also very well balanced. The sheath is another finely crafted item made from a beautiful leather and designed as well as the knife. I'm already buying more of their knives and I'm certain of what I'll receive. They offer what amounts to be a set of knives with the polished blades, guard and pommel, and with the stacked leather handles and I'll likely end up with them all. Buy one knife from them as a trial and you will buy more, probably many more. If you love knives, do not fail to check these guys out.
