It is a very pretty knife. And rugged to boot! The blade is 3.5"x about 1.5". The finish is nice, although AUS 8 isn't the most stainless of stainless steels. The TiNi coating on the other versions is very good looking and durable. I'm undecided about which finish looks better in the end.
It comes out of the box razor sharp. I took all the hair off my left arm playing around with it. The AUS 8 steel isn't the best and there are others at this price point that come with VG-10 which has a finer grain and is more durable (I'm lookin' at those fine Spyderco knives). Still, it's prettty easy to resharpen to that razor edge.
The knife is also amazingly light for one this big. There's no metal liners so torsion might be a problem, but you should'nt be stabbing and twisting with this kind of knife.
Anyway, buy it! You won't be disappointed
