This is definitely the most famous fixed blade knife ever designed. Each little part of this knife is designed perfectly with high quality for amazingly heavy duty operations. Its blade is razor sharp and can easily stay this way with minor maintenance. Here is a photo from a different angle.
This knife comes in a lot of different models but the design remains the same. The only notable difference is on models that have a small serrated edge but the overall design it’s still exactly the same. Since you can find literally thousands of detailed reviews I’m not going to get into all the details of this knife. I’ll just challenge you to buy one and try it out yourselves. It’s a great knife.
