Michael J. from Chandler, AZ
This is one tough and serious knife. The blade is thick and hollow ground with a very useful shape. This is one of the best knives that I own. I highly recommend it because of price point and value. I think anyone looking for a practical knife should consider this one. The Knife Depot was quick and reliable.

Awesome knife, I'm an active outdoors man and this is just what I have been looking for, good steel, good snare, lousy light but didn't need that anyway, can't wait to take it out there!

Tim B. from Rochelle, IL
This quite simply is the best designed knife ever made in regard to design and function. The quality of the materials and manufacture, should have this knife closer to $200.00 or more. It is stunning in looks and the way it feels in the hand. If I could have rated it higher I would have. Everyone that has ever handled it says the same thing.

Sometimes the price of something is not an indicator of quality. For the money this is a great knife that has a in-hand comfortable balance. The "factory" edge needed some fine tuning and future use will determine its ability to hold its edge.

As solid, sharp and well designed a knife as one can hope for. All fixed blade knives should come with Kydex sheaths, as this one does, but the leather is pretty,

This is the second knife Creek Stewart recommends for my kit. I bought this knife, the Becker BK2 and the Timberline Kommer Drop Point Stag Handle knives for my kits. The Becker and Blackbird I'll use for hunting and I'm already using the Timberline as my EDC. Very well made Blackbird and I understand Paul Scheiter designed this one. Very nice can't wait to use it.

Plastic handle well contoured, good mold but sounds hollow so may not be reliable under stress. Not well balance. Head-heavy 440 steel blade can only cut cake...you will need to sharpen before use, however the hard tanto tip would probably pierce sheet metal effortlessly. Plastic sheath functional but also cheap feeling. Great $20 knife for disposable gear. Cool tactical styling gets highest marks.
