This is a cheap one that i have. No brand or makers mark anywhere on the knife, so i have no idea where it is from or the maker. But is a good little sharp work knife, that can be used for really hard and dirty work, so if it gets dirty or scratched not an issue. Wooden scales came untreated, so i gave it 4 coats of Tru-Oil, then a buff and polish with some beeswax, came up a treat.

That looks like it would be a terrific carry knife. Or a great first knife for a kid.

It is a great carrier, and sharp. Never thought about your other comment, but would be a great first knife for a kid, a fantastic one for a kid to learn to sharpen. Well thought out. ::tu::
