The Ultralight Smoke Gray Ridge Blade is the perfect companion to your Ridge Belt & half the price of any knife like it on the market.
Hard to find any knives using this steel at this price. If it's made in the U.S. as reported, it's pretty much unbeatable when it comes to steel, weight and price.
Six stitches in my pinky attest to the reports on the loose sheath. Easily fixable, but I found out when unboxing the knife. Not sure if I should judge sharpness based on how easily it cut skin and muscle or the happy fact that no tendons were damaged. As the knife was drawn along my finger and pressure against it was not applied, I'll go with sharp.
I'll be able to better judge once it's used to process an animal. However, even if you get a dull one (I recommend the manufacturer works on that), you certainly have a great start to an excellent ultralight knife.
Nice knife. I like the size and blade shape. Should make a great addition to my kill kit. However, the knife is quite dull as received. While CPM S90V steel is awesome for blades, sharpening can be a pain. RidgeBelt needs to put a better edge on prior to shipping.
Great knife. Handle needs to be wrapped a little better but that's an easy fix for the price. Overall quality is great.
This is about as cheap as you’re going to find this style of s90v steel knife. Only cons so far are the blade came pretty dull and the sheath doesn’t hold the knife very tight. Both can be fixed fairly easy though.
Kydex is not as tight as I prefer, but it’s hard to complain for the value of the blade quality.
