Great value

Great! I am well satisfied with my purchase that I have ordered 2 more for friends. Would have loved to have had this blade during military career.

Nice heavy duty knife

The knife came in just a bit dull but a couple of passes on the wet stone, it was razor sharp. The sheath is very good quality. Will be using it for some yard work tomorrow.

fair deal

the knife is ok, i'm using it in my shop. it takes an edge well, the real deal is the sheath. I've been looking for a good sheath for my custom hunting knife and this one is perfect, well made, good quality. i'm thinking of buying another one for a handmade knife I have. money well spent.

Great Knife Great Price

I bought this as camping utility knife. I am pleased with the weight of the full tang blade bit should make a great all around the camp knife. I took the time to sharpen it on my stone and it has a razor sharp edge. I used it s couple times around the garage and it seems to hold a decent edge. I can’t wait to get to the woods and put it to the test.

YouTube review coming soon

I’ve used this knife for about a week now. Let me start with it’s durability. I’ve used this to baton wood for a fire and it’s takes the beating with ease. Not even a scratch or ding on the back edge of the knife. Also the back edge of this blade is very functional for using a fire steel. The sharpness of the blade out of the box I would call a 8.5/10. I like my blades very sharp but nothing a little honing from a wet stone won’t fix. I’ve also used this knife to make feather sticks which it does ok with. I’ve had other knives produce better feathers but this does fine, I’m just a little picky with my feathers. The handle of this knife is beautiful but just a bit slick, but extremely comfortable in the hand. I have bigger hands and the thickness feels right. You may have a bit of getting use to with smaller hands. The sheath is out of this world in quality and I agree with other people that the sheath is worth the money alone. I’ve used the sheath in a cross draw setup with the Velcro and it’s is very comfortable and doesn’t get in the way. I’ve also tried a same side draw and am not a fan of how that sits. Overall this is a great knife and I see myself using for a long time. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Good Value

I'm a fan of 1095 steel tempered properly & this knife has a reputation for that. The scandi grind, scout carry sheath & proper overall design for wilderness chores, makes this a good value. The modified coke bottle scales were a pleasant surprise; I didn't think I'd like it that much, so far works fine from my limited use, but really haven't done enough with it to tell if there are any 'hot spots'. I was less happy with some signs of mass production line workmanship, including marring of the leather, uneven finishing on brass pins. Although not terrible by any means at Bud K's price point, I do like wear & tear to reflect "my" history with the knife, not someone else's.

Checks all the boxes except one!

I'm knife poor but had been considering this one for quite a while before deciding to add just one more to the "collection". On the surface what's not to love? Scandi grind on a hefty 1095 carbon steel blade, properly tempered according to reviews & a very good leather sheath, all in an attractive & usefully designed form. So I got it. The functionality is certainly there but it was a less satisfying purchase than hoped. The hammer marks from seating the handle pins were obvious, the expose brass was coarse sanded on a slope creating a dark divot where wood meets brass & the leather was scarred by tool marks& cuts, here & there. If possible I'd give it 3 1/2 stars but scored it at 4 vs. a 3 because the intent & potential were there, if marred by production line necessities at this price point. I just don't like having a new knife look like a "rush" job before I've had a chance to put my own "wear" & history on it. Good knife at a fair price.
