Excellent hunting knife

The sheath is high quality, well made leather with a plastic liner and a very well done dangler attachment. The handle has superb ergonomics and will fit a variety of hand sizes in most any grip. The over all fit and finish is outstanding and comparable to many knives that easily cost 2 to 3 times as much. The blade has a very versatile shape and the full flat grind makes it an outstanding slicer; great for food prep, game processing and general cutting duties. This is not a dedicated bushcraft knife, so it does not excel at wood crafting or carving, but you could do a lot worse than this. The N690 steel is a great choice for a food/game prep knife as well as general use. I did have to touch up the factory edge just a bit (added a slight convex to the secondary) to get it to where I like it. The heat treat seems spot on as after its initial touch up, I've not had to do more than a mild stropping after 2 weeks of household cutting chores. Overall, I am very impressed with Southern Cross, and I expect I will be getting more.
