Got the rosewood model. Good weight. Well balanced. Feels good in the hand. Holds an edge well. What more is there to say? I'd buy another one tomorrow if I needed another knife.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LarryL Not very good
I ordered this knife a few weeks ago and then used it for the first time on an elk. I had to "saw" through the skin and the gut hook would not pull through the skin. I thought it would be ready to go right out of the box, but I was very disappointed in the sharpness of the blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chevy08 great knife
i have used different kinds of knives from my sons medium sized fixed blade to the famous KA-BAR, but this knife cut through 4 bucks and a few squirrels and it still keeps its sharpness. i've only sharpened it once but it still keeps on cutting.

Very good knife. Used it to gut deer and cut up squirles, worked great for both. Zipper opens deer right up and rubber handle gives a great grip. If I lost it or for some reason needed a new knife would deffinetly buy another one.
