I did not buy the Cuisine 3 for camp cookery but it’s design is highly suited to that task. I bought it ‘cause it was interesting and cheap. Sort of a giant Barlow. But it turns out not to be cheap. True, it’s a 440A blade, but that is fine for this sort of light duty kitchen knife. Handles are indeed rosewood. Ample grip, large “sheep foot”-like blade. One hand open and closing is smooth and easy and tight lockup, I had none of the break in issues the earlier reviewer had. Impressive and inexpensive chopper.
I like this knife. The wood handle is classy. The cleaver / straight edge style blade is in style, and I have been trying to get as many types of those as I can. The lock feels good. My only wish is that is opened more easily, but it not difficult by any means. I got spoiled by flippers and spring assisted knives.
Its worth it for the price. Mine wouldnt lock unless "flipped" out until the liner lock broke in a little, and now stick bad if engaged any more than lightly. For $14, you get a big knife with a wood handle though, so why not?
To summarize: Construction is made-by-a-drunken-toddler level shoddy. Blade thickness varies significantly along the edge, knife cannot be fully disassembled, lockup varies wildly. I'd call this a novelty knife, but it has found its way into my lunch kit as a beater steak knife. Still, wholesale lack of manufacturing effort is disappointing, even at the sub-$20 price tag.
