I would love to give this five stars but

When this came it wasn't extremely sharp, which is fine because I can sharpen a knife, but everything looked nice. Then I noticed the tip which was slightly rolled, its not too bad so I'm sure that I can fix it.
Edc awesome

I've worn this blade every day for two years. It's cut everything I needed it to and I've gotten it wet tons of time never a spot of rust. The edge has held perfectly and the sheath has held up great too. Worth every penny.

I picked one of these up on a lark to see if the extreme curve would help me make long spirals on walking sticks. It will not draw straight out because it is not a straight blade. A pull/rocking motion breaks it out immediately if the sheath is immobilized in hand or on a belt; you can't fast draw it from a neck cord. I own all the Minimalists, and it is probably the least EDC and most SD due to blade shape--still a fun blade. Lastly, attaching the belt loop to the sheathe and carrying it in a back pocket lets you "wave" the sheathe right off.

This is a nice enough knife but it impossible to extract it from the sheath.The curve of the blade makes it very hard to draw;it's difficult even using both hands.Back to the drawing board for this combo.
