The date of purchase was circa 2006. If the current quality is the same, I don't know.
Like every knife I buy, I put my own edge on it. The blade is stainless; it took a good edge; I can shave my arm with it. I don't use it as a tool, so I don't know if it will keep it or not.
The handle appears to be wood. The guard and rivits are brass. The lanyard hole is lined with brass, but the brass is not beveled.
The nylon sheath is well made. It has a plastic liner with fingers that keep the blade centered and away from the seam.
The knife weighs 13 oz., knife and sheath weighs 17 oz. The balance point is right at the notch in the ricasso.
Pros: It seems decent.
Cons: Rivits not smooth with handle....
Would recommend: Yes
