Bart Mann - Slick and quick.
Very effective, and should prove economical. Used dry to test, shaved well. Would like to see a more curved handle. It does cut you on the more curved parts of the back/ shoulders. Really to expensive for cost of production. Took no care during test shave. Took about 5 minutes. 5 stars because of the speed and a decent shave, just watch the curvature of the body.
S. Rubin - I was expecting better.
I ALSO have an old Gerber boot knife from the early 1980's and the quality is night and day different. The older one used a carbon steel and a very graceful taper from a 1/4" thick base. It was a rather high quality knife for a line-production offering. This knife is .125": about 1/2 as thick. The old one had a well made leather thumb-break sheath; this one has, well a functional plastic one that is a bit over complex for a shank.
Lance - If you get one, you better get it right before you need it, or it will dry up unopened.
Bought a pack of this a couple o f years ago, and within a few months, still packed and unopened, it turned solid.
E259 - Pretty good
Still not my favorite but it has what has been missing in the last few books (police work and a bit of the detective). It has also thankfully toned down the mysticism. I really enjoy the local geographies and history. I find myself looking at Google maps a lot. Well done. Now let's get on with finding that Me,I can bad guy that engineered the death of Walt's son in law.
