Highly recommend December 14, 2011
Reviewer: Hasan Ahun-babaev from Princeton, NJ United States  
Really well made full tang, high carbon steel blade, it is ready for heavy use practical cutting tool. Good choice for a very reasonable price, and a good gift for beginners.

functional February 15, 2011
Reviewer: Jonathan Martin from Orlando, FL United States  
I need to start off by saying that for the price this is pretty good. It looks nice, comes with a cheap case, and is real damascus as advertised. It is functional, the blade has a tang and pegs and is secure, though I am not sure how far into the handle it goes. I think 4 star is appropriate, this just isn't 5 star though. Here is why.

Poorly sharpened. (but dangerous and easily fixed.) A 3 inch long section is poorly polished where the rough grit makes layer lines hard to see. Layer lines are lower contrast than in the pictures. And last, the fittings look old and worn instead of pristine like the pictures.
