In addition to being incredibly cool, this looks like an almost perfect fixed blade. It will slice, stab and skin and the slightly recurved SE is perfect for cutting rope, among other things; a "combo" blade with absolutely no compromise. I live on the ocean, so H-1 is excellent. As long as it fits the hand as well as it appears to, I can't think of anything that would make this a better all around knife.
I can't wait to check this out at the Blade show in Portland.
Our reason is quite satisfied, in 999 cases out of every 1000 of us, if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized by someone else. Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case.
