Knife has been made for me by the Mr. The Mr. has taken to making knives over the past year and this is the second one for me. It is light weight and thin and is very sturdy. I am in love with it. I now will need to make a sheath for it and this one will be done. The blade is very sharp and hard even though it is lightweight and thin. The Mr. has done a really awesome job on this one and I am looking forward to having new ones to add to my collection. Although I do collect knives, they can all be used and are used when needed.
