This is one of those very wide knives with a wide handle and blade. Despite this it is not excessively heavy (I assume due to the aluminium handles) and feels nice in the hand with a good grip and balance. The quality seems fine and it looks nice. The blade is sharp. It is very difficult to open with 1 hand due to the weight and relative stiffness. In all if you like this wide style, then for the price this knife represents an attractive option.
