I love the heft and feel of the blade, to the point that it challenges the "there are no dangerous weapons, only dangerous people" motto. I found the sheath to be awkward to draw from no matter how I equipped it. Resheathing the blade was even worse. If you could offer a sheath option that allows for a right hand draw from the small of the back, I would be thrilled.
Perfect balanced Nemoto Katsu knife, amazing work
This is the finest pocket knife I own! Very well made and the finish on the blade is amazing!
