I have yet to put this knife through its paces, as I just received it. However I am blown away with the quality and attention to detail. The stitching on the beautiful leather sheath matches the color of the handle inserts and the color on the fire starter. Blade is ridiculously sharp and the handle is flawless. I have no doubt that this knife will handle anything thrown at it and stay sharp. Mosaic pins are a nice touch. Overall I couldn't be happier with the quality and attention to detail. Also, it is always a pleasure dealing with Vlad. Knife shipped quickly and he is super responsive.
