I love beautiful knives and this one is gorgeous! The good thing is it is very useful. I got it for my wife, but I ended up getting one for myself. I tried to EDC it, and honestly for the regular daily tasks we, knives lovers, need on a day around the house/office, it is more than adequate. I ended up sharpening it after a while, and the 8Cr13MoV is easy to sharp. I have to mention that I have very large hands (XXL gloves) and it was quite okay to hold. I am not saying you can have a good grip for a serious task, but for opening a package or cutting a card board, it does fine. Finally, it is a bit challenging to open it with one hand when new, and that is largely because of the small size. When you break it in, it is a lovely fidgeting knife that doesn’t draw errs. It doesn’t replace a “serious” knife, but for the price, do yourself a favor and get one. You will definitely enjoy it.
