    Very Good with One Major Flaw

    Posted by Evan on Aug 14th 2023

    Outside of one major issue, everything about the knife was great. The horn was beautiful and feels great in the hand, everything was polished nicely and fit together wonderfully (some minor imperfections here and there, but that gives character!). The blade is also super thin (roughly the same thickness as an opinel), so I assumed it would make a great slicer. Noticed it had a harder time cutting an apple than I would've expected, which struck me as really odd because it was quite thin and came rather sharp. Upon further inspection, I found that the blade had a pretty noticeable bend in it. Tried (with the help of Stephane) to correct the blade a bit, and got it kinda reasonably less bent (still very visible though). I was hoping that this would help it slice through things better, but even after I sharpened it, it seems to have a harder time slicing through stuff than other knives I have that aren't as thin or sharp. I really wanted to give the knife a 3 star rating because everything else about the knife is excellent and it is useable, even if not well performing. But that's just such a let down, given that I was hoping to make this my daily carry knife. I think if you just collect or give it very light use, then it's probably fine. But I'm just a little shocked this could get passed GR's quality control, because I have another knife by them (the kenavo) which is fantastic, and I've never even heard of someone getting a knife with a bent blade by any company.
