The absolute best blade I own! I have 2 completely custom blades I had made specifically to what I wanted and this blade is better quality even than those would without a doubt suggest this blade for any knife person.
I love this knife. However the sheath is not my favorite. It hangs very loose and is hard to really carry it concealed. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but I’ve tried every possible adjustment I can come up with. I wish there were more options for the sheath.
Just received the knife. Fit & finish is excellent. Black coating looks durable. Knife came sharp. Very grippy but comfortable handle. Even grindlines. Sheath is very nice. Good purchase on knife. Knife has a very positive lockup when inserted in the sheath. No rattle in sheath. Nice product! Recommended seller.
Just got my Disciple & Trainer & WOW!!! Grip: Excellent! I wear sz Lg/XL gloves & the hafts of these are outstanding - the checkering is aggressive ENUF but not painful. The grip length is just long enuf that I could use the butt for unpadded boney areas, like the forehead or parietal region of the skull. Secure in all grip variations. Definitely optimized for 'Stab & Rip' applications but excellent for base of palm supported 'Fencer's Grip' as well. Blade: Grind is perfectly symmetrical and hair scaring shaving sharp. Given the thickness of the blade stock I'm absolutely impressed! Looking forward to beginning my training (and with the edge up blade IT WILL TAKE SOME TRAINING!) Cannot emphasize the value of the training blade enuf! The sheaths 'Almost' identical but the trainer is obviously fitted for that blade whereas the distal taper of the live blade is obvious in the sheath fitting. Nice attention to detail! The sheath allows A FULL GRIP before draw (why can't other knife makers figure THAT out?) The Pull the Dot snaps are secure & work exactly as they should. I purchased a pair of Ulti-Clips as well (also got the Splinter) & looking forward to getting those mounted. I wear scrubs or shorts at work (2 different jobs) & a belt isn't an option - but the Ulti-Clips should fix my dilemma there. BRAVO ZULU, Warrior Poet Society. GREAT PRODUCTS!!!
