A little while ago, one of my mates put me on to this.
Well curiosity got the better of me!
I flogged the Eka Swingblade, as nice a knife as it was to look at, it drove me mad having a knife I spent more time cleaning than cutting with.
£7.72 later on a well known internet site, my Bahco arrived.
Needless to say I am a convert, nice to handle, easy to clean and sharp as the preverbial!
Yet to give mine a proper sharpen, stropping has maintained a razor sharp edge from new.
Whilst I am the first to admire some of the fine craftmenship in knives that is evident on this forum, at the end of the day the Bahco is a knife which does the business with no frills.
So if you are in the market for a new knife, try out the budget option first, I am happy with mine.
