  1. Looks really well made aside from not to spec issues.
    Should not have been any problem for them to send knife with false edge shaving sharp.
    Wonder why the issue with that? Not like it’s all that difficult to do.
    I’m not a fan of wood handles at all.
    Too many possible issues in any long term survival scenario.
    Agree on finger grooves- way to deep.
    Sounds like good company to do business with though-many custom knife makers would not have made you new knife, just discounted price.

  2. Ontario Bill Bagwell’s ‘Helle’s Bell’

    How do these 12″ or the smaller 9-10″ models stack up? I’ve seen them for $100-200 range at times and seem well made. May need a loop for securing knife in the sheath. The design is more fighter than utility but workable. It’s really a pointy cleaver with how thick they are.

    Great reviews. Keep them coming!

  3. One helluva nice knife ! I’m not completely sold on finger grips either (maybe rubbing down ridge edges), but the rest of knife – very nice. You have good taste.

  4. So unless you can bring something to the table other than invectives based on nothing whatsoever, Mr. “Ozark Tactical,” I suggest you save your comments for those of your friends who might listen to you…baseless accusations are not welcome here. Putz.

  5. I just bought a similar knife by this maker. Just curious if you ever received that replacement knife. They sure look good, and your review put me over the top on one – so far, lol. Have you ever figured out just who Andre Ronald is? Or if there even IS an “Andre Ronald”?

  6. First, thank you for stopping by and for your comment. Second, I believe he’s a knife maker out of South Africa. Not completely sure, but that’s what I remember. The sheaths need a lot of work, though. If you want a bomb proof sheath, look up Savage Sheaths out of Pennsylvania.
