I had one of the original four knives and its a cracking knife, sits well in the hand, holds an amazing edge, craftsman ship is second to none, punching well above its asking price, the leather work is also very good compared to some of the more expensive better known knife builders. I've used this knife for 8 months now on roe red and sika and it has done everything asked of it and then some.

Excellent knife steel, used by Duncan Chandler in the past and very popular in South Africa.

I know a maker form South Afirca who used N690 in in a cutting contest with the blade tested to destruction as had to be bent from vertical in a vice to the horizontal without breaking. Did it no sweat and then shaved arm hair with the blade.
