dana tassler: That was a GREAT review! Short and to the point. Well done.
isaac thill: well, I see they changed the steel, the old parry blades were made of the 410 not 420.
isaac thill: its actually pressurized 410 steel. its the same steel that landing gear is made of. its strong crap!
real metis: in trying really hard not be a steel snob but 420 na i will pass
simonize251: 420 stainless? LOL It wouldn't last 5 minutes in actual use.
Oofty Goofty: I have one of these , amazing blade
jellzey: Ben is the fellow a friend of yours? If so I can understand, otherwise that knife is terrible.
yellowtruck: Looks like some Tacticool rubbish from the 1980's...
michael stewart: If you made an m9 bayonet style sheath with a triangular lug and change the back of the point of the blade from flat to chisel shaped you could combine the sheath with this knife to make wire cutters. and since this knife is longer it would be more effective at cutting wire than the m9 bayonet.
Denali: I loooooove mine, got #410
MrRambo1037: If only I had the money.

awesomos95: Where can i get it? like what web site?
lothre: I own one and can tell you it has no problems holding its edge, nor is it bent from prying. I use mine repeatedly for chopping, splitting wood, carving, and sawing branches. I have not noticed it dulling any more than a 440c blade. perhaps if you put it beside a 440c blade and started abusing it for long periods you might notice a difference. I use mine more than a SF operator would and I have had no issues with it. Most versatile survival/tactical knife I own, and I have a decent collection
Mrichard1991: 420 is less hard than any of the the small 4" blades I have in 440C. I can't imagine the blade stays sharp for long or is good at prying because of that.
Haynes Eslinger: 410 steel according to Apocolypse 101 show, which recommends this knife.
Gary Sudbrink: can someone please comment on the quality of the steel used - what is the US equivalent grade ??
ben hopkinson: cant put any exact addresses but try s-staniforth co uk
