Very nice and has a quality edge when it arrives. Be aware it is big so for some they may not like that. I love the size and quality of knife. It is a great tool for building shelters and making fires. It is so nice that some may not want to use or put it through the normal tests to see how it holds up. It has three holes so you can easily secure to large sturdy piece of wood to make a fearsome spear. This is not for the faint of heart or weekend warriors. Worth the money and you will like the way it feels in your hand. I myself like a large knife and have no problem carrying more then one knife. So, I would most likely have this one and a little smaller one like mentioned in the survival knife
