Received knife and can’t wait to use it!
I really was. I felt like I had bought into the social media thirst trap hype and now I was stuck with this thing. It wasn't like I could return it, there was nothing wrong with it (even the the CEO Stu said send it back and I'll refund your money!!!) So with a negative outlook and a disgruntled attitude I went on a big camping trip. I took the knife and myself and a few friends of like mind passed the knife around. Yes we did all the obligatory "bushcraft" stuff with it, but we went way into left field and really started to be stupid, like Cold Steel video stupid.
Not only did it do everything you would except it to do but it did it pretty damn well. As for the "other" stuff, it took all the abuse and asked for more. The craziest thing- it was still slicing paper and popping off hairs! So for the rest of the trip I started treating it with the respect it had EARNED and really came to like it and enjoyed using it as my EDC for the rest of the trip. I will say that I would prefer a sharper spine, but it throws sparks just fine. The leather sheath is a standard JRE dangler, sturdy, well-made but nothing to write home about. Now, here is the best thing about the knife-- the company! Wow Stu Shank really does care about customer service, feedback, input, and honestly whatever else you want to talk about. Some people may gripe about the price but this is the way I look at it now: not only are you investing in an heirloom quality tool, you are investing into the company itself and an American company at that! I will most definitely be purchasing either an F6 or the upcoming F3 here real soon!
I love this knife. It fits my hand perfect and is well balanced. It’s easy to see and feel the quality. It holds and edge with lots of abuse. If your considering this knife get it. You will not be disappointed.
Sturdy, well balanced and VERY sharp. This is an extremely well made knife that’s perfect for anyone’s needs. Can’t recommend it enough. Definitely a must buy
I bought both the F4 & F6 knives. I have not carried the F6 to date, as I will utilize it for hunting and woods related activities. However, I carry the F4 everyday for use on the farm. I love the weight and handling of the knife for cutting everything from wood to hay bale net wrap to opening boxes, etc. I find the handle to fit very securely in my hand and the overall knife weight facilitates cutting "tough to cut" items. I'm in an out of farm & construction equipment seats all day long and the pivoting sheath works great! Great knives...well done!
