Thought I'd give this a try. It looks cool, but that's about it. Can't see much practicality in this version. If you plan on using this for utility, perhaps how with one of the other blade shapes.
Cool little knife

This knife looks great but did not come super sharp. It's acute tip lends itself to piercing/stabbing more than slashing. I bought this knife as a possible neck knife but the blade shape does not lend itself to this easily.
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.
Draw?!

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.
