I didn't actually get this knife through Heinnie.com, like i do most of my knives, it was a gift from my wife who knew i had been eyeing it up for a while.
After opening the box and using, messing, and generally giving it a good thorough look over, i felt compelled to write a review here, because Heinnie is where i personally come first to get my blades.
This knife is astonishingly well made, with excellent materials, not to mention how good the knife looks!? its just the perfect EDC for me, rock solid lock up, lightweight, easy opening, good looking (cos we all know that counts right) and quite simply the sharpest knife i have ever used! This knife out the box, will push cut through an extra thin cigarette paper! Just beyond razor sharp, it is surgically sharp, and with the slim flat grind and plain edge, i can see it will be a doddle to touch up on a sharpmaker and a strop in no time at all.
The damascus steel blade, to my eye is almost mesmerising not least for the looks, but for the price also!! If had not known about Mcusta blade's before, and was looking at this knife with fresh eyes, you could tell me it was a £300 plus blade and i wouldn't have flinched, everything about its finish and performance is spot on, especially for the low price tag, i'd swop out any of my ZT's and even some of my custom knives for this little number.
From what i understand, Mcusta means "machined knives" or something extremely similar, which accounts for the low price tag. The majority of the components on the knife are produced via precision electronic machining, and not the hugely more expensive method of using craftsman. This i guess also accounts for the perfection on the finish, because the process is predominantly computer processed, and trust me i have look hard to find any imperfections.
As you might be able to detect, from the above gushing review, i like this knife, and would be amazed if anyone who bought it, did not also like it in a similar fashion, and for such a low price. Therefore i would have no qualms recommending it to anyone, which is something that i wouldn't normally do, as everyones taste is different.
