I have had a Warrior for quite awhile. Mine, of course, pre-dated the black coated version, as it was used in a magazine article I wrote several months ago. I actually carry mine as my "wet weather" fixed blade. As Northeast Ohio is wet most of the winter, I have carried it on duty a time or two and to and from various martial arts seminars and classes. It is not my favorite fixed blade for fighting, but it is a quite serviceable design when used in reverse grip or forward grip methodologies, has a second cutting edge, which can be utilized in many evil ways by a knife-happy, well trained barbarian like me
, and that H-1 steel means I can defer maintenance for a bit when it gets wet from snow, ice, or rain. I think you will like it.
I do regret that I did not pick up Mickey Yurco's telephone call a couple of weeks ago, as I was on a plane to Texas when he called. Mickey was at Mike Sastre's booth at a knife show and was going to ask me if I wanted him to pick up one of Mike's sheaths for the Warrior, since he had seen me carry the Warrior during a couple of task force operations. Oh well, I'll just have to deal with Mike directly for the sheath. Mickey makes some pretty good kydex for his Yurco custom knives (the knives are very, very nice), and he told me Mike's sheaths for the Warrior are the best that he has seen for that particular blade.
Take care and train hard,
