    If it was gifted to me I'd use the shit out of it... it was a gift afterall. I wouldnt expect it to break but it isnt going to hold an edge for long. It's made of crap steel... a mild structural steel. In fact you can buy it in hardware stores.

    Good grief, I looked it up on Creek Stewart's website... A36? And a hundred and fifty bucks? Honestly? And people make fun of the Gerber/BG offerings? No offense or disrespect intended to @sweet trav .

    It's why its chisel ground... the knife is basically case hardened. They must add carbon to one side.

    Ah some of their others did at one time. They must use that Asymmetrical on this one... basically flat grind on one side with a hollow grind on the other from their picture.

    I'm not going to condemn a knife I haven't used...BUT...that's a mighty mighty eccentric approach to metallurgy.

    Maybe he's discovered something completely unexpected. Visually it looks like something from one of those "Emberverse" novels.

    That's pretty friggin spendy for a knife that looks like a blind dude went to town on it with an angle grinder. But if it was free, beat on it and tell us if it holds up.

    But hey, at least the sheath looks nice.
