The reason for the four stars is because the knife came with a slightly bent tip and a blemish in the middle of the blade. I was able to strop the blemish out and I’ll fix the tip the next time I bring the stones out. I have other Drake and Lyons knives, but for some reason, despite the bent tip, I also seem to go back to using this knife. I would definitely recommend this knife. Came extremely sharp and ready to carve.
The blade is totally awesome. The handle is a little small and the picture showed a colored handle. I would of liked the colored handle, but I do know they can change handles at anytime. Overall this is a fantastic knife.
