      Love this knife,$50 cheaper than the spyderco johimbo just as nasty I happen to own both and the Blackhawk other than the thumbhole is just as good as the spyderco in my opinion..wharncliffe style blades were the favorite of the Vikings and the samurai until the samurai were mounted on horseback they used this style blade exclusively.thats how old this blade style is...dont believe? Do some research. Carry on... Sensei craig

    • Great Self Defense Knife

      This knife is fantastic! I've had one for several months, and I have been very impressed by it. The blade is exceptionally sharp, and the handle is a very non-slip design made from G-10. The tip of the blade was designed to be thin for less resistance when cutting and stabbing. It's a self defense knife, not a pry bar. This is worth every penny!

      I love this knife. The shape is perfect. The scales are very aggressive, so you may need to put some JB weld on them under the clip or else grind the scale smooth under the clip to keep from tearing up your pocket. If I could make changes, I'd make it a tad larger and a frame-lock instead of a liner-lock. Otherwise, perfection!

    • Great Knife (not for everyone)

      This knife is designed by Mike Janich, and is primarily a self defense weapon. The shape of the blade makes for an excellent slicing tool, but the tip is a bit more fragile than the average drop point. If you're planning on using this for a utility blade or crowbar, go buy a box cutter or a crowbar. If you're looking for a well thought out SD blade, I think it's a great choice.
