WHAT WE SAY:
Out of the box you noitce 2 things:
1. the quality look and feel
2. the tinny size
The size of this knife is suited to small hands or someone used to to doing fine tasks with a small handled blade. The handle is less than 3.5 inches (or 8.5cm) and only around 20mm at the widest.
To us, this is an ideal gift knife for young people, one that will hopefully be passed on plus provide a great source of learning and respect for knives. A first or upgrade from the first practice knife. It has a very sharp point tip and average sharpness on the edge out of the box (not razor) - so good tool to learn with.
Also a good option for a lightweight backpacking camp knife.
See the 'Specifications' tab for details.
Jimmy's Tip: If for a young person, spend some time showing them how to handle the knife (e.g. whittling a stick, slicing fruit/veg, cutting twine etc.) then observe them. Give them the knife to use when your close by till you are comfortable they can responsibily care for it on their own. Same goes for adults (Torbs)... :0)
