I was pleasantly surprised when I bought this knife; it is ergonomically perfect. I love the size, shape, and general overall feel of it in my hand, and it's made of good steel. The knife also comes in a wooden storage box, which is a nice touch, making this knife perfect for a gift. I'm glad I bought it. It's my first White River knife, and I am impressed. If you are on the fence, go ahead a buy it. You will be glad to have it in your collection.
