New knife.

I have never heard of them before. Maybe Fiver can chime in. They are made in Idaho. I am very impressed with this little blade. 1095 carbon steel blade, micarta handles. You should check them out. This thing was razor sharp right out of the box. A good little everyday carry knife.

keep a little oil on the blade.
I have a buddy that is a knife freak and he speaks highly of them.
I have a small handful of knives I have used for years [one gets used for nothing but opening the stomach compartment of deer and Elk like a zipper then put away] so I'm pretty utilitarian about them.

Yep. That 1095 high carbon stuff will rust right quick. I keep a small eye dropper bottle with mineral oil in it in my pack.

I'm a huge fan of 1095 for meat blades. Nice little hip knife, I like the flat-grind, the way the blade is dropped, and the shape of the edge.

That is plenty for dressing a deer. I have a little folder I used with no more blade than that. A sharp knife just cuts with no effort.
Nice knife.

that is an excellent shape for gutting and skinning.
I understand they sharpen them to about a 20* angle, so they are razor sharp but not going to take a beating opening boxes and the like for long.

They have some good vids. I can't figure out how they ship stuff from Finland for $9.99 to us with tracking and sig req. It would cost $100 if we used USPS

I have ordered from them over 10 times. Never had a problem The chocolate is awesome. Don't laugh, but the fish cock is pretty good. I always order a couple cans of the chocolate and the fish cock. The chocolate has some serious caffeine in it
