I have many knives, but this delivers a real sense of occasion when held in the hand. High quality construction, great balance and incredibly tactile. You will not want to put it down. Sheath is also very nice. Better than a Master Tanto? It's close for sure.
When you first hold the blade you can feel immediately it's a serious tool designed for one purpose only. The D2 steel is very solid and gives a good weight to the blade. I'm a big fan of D2 now and Aus 8 feels lightweight and fragile in comparison to D2 which feels bombproof. I feel it is worth trying to describe the handle. The handle grip at first felt a bit uncomfortable, almost too grippy to the point where it feels it could cause blisters if you used it for extended periods of time. That said, it is not designed to be a utility knife so the user is unlikely to get blisters of course. It was designed to be used for 10 seconds or just enough to take out sentries etc. Now however I have got used to it and have found a grip that suits me. For the majority of people reading this, It is a great collectors piece however it is a genuinely practical blade designed for serious military use.
There's not much to say about this knife, awesome sums it up. I love the quality of construction and the simple but functional design, with these things in mind, it's obvious what its 'raison d'etre' is! The only thing that I could say is that although it has a good carrying system, an old fashioned virtical and horizontal wide belt loop, in my opinion, would of been nice. Had a long wait for the satin finish blade, but that was due to the suppliers in the states. As usual, the staff at HH kept me informed throughout and gave great service. If you're serious about collecting good quality CQB knives, then you really should get one, I love it!
And to avoid breaching UK law lets call that purpose "cheese cutting".
This is an excellent choice for cutting almost all types of cheese in a quiet manner without any fuss. It takes the classic Fairbairn Sykes pattern and combines it with a typical Brent Beshara handle and modern materials. A great collectible or tool for those who need to cut cheese as part of their job.
