    Knife arrived, Not pristine so I have no qualms about carrying it. It's a great little knife with just a hint of the original blade etch if the light was just right. I gave it a washing, sharpened it up ( Boy, I was surprised about how hard the steel is - nice temper, Cut up some strawberries to start a patina, cleaned it again and Ren Waxed the scales. Into my pocket it went.

    This is s thin knife and disappears into the pocket, The blades are ground and crimped in a way that they nestle in a minimal space. I like that it has an easy open notch in the scale for the pen blade

    Do the shields always stand proud of the scales on these? Also; does this type of jigging have a name?

    Here are better photos, all blades are marked, from what I understand this signifies a higher grade knife.
