Very sharp so watch out. If you think this is small think again, the dagger is huge and will scare off any thugs. If you are thinking of buying this or not well I say if you don't your crazy.
I bought this because there was a 20% off entire order, and thought what the heck, it looks cool, has some cool features, and I might be able to use it pig hunting. Got it today, and WOW! I was more than impressed! The blade came really sharp,not sharp enough to shave with, but a couple minutes on my "works sharp" knife sharpener, and I could easily shave with it. Nice weight, and balance. Killer sheath too! Hooks to your belt via a clip, and the knife is securely held, yet slides out easily for use. If you're thinking of getting one of these knives, just do it. Its worth the money.
This dagger is cool....it's only decoration...the blade is made out of some kind of powder metal they press in a mould..so it's completely nonfunctional. ..but the whole point is to hang on a wall anyways...and in that it's perfect. ..own it for over a year now and still looks great. ...another great product from United cutlery!!!!
I give this dagger a good rating. It looks like a good facsimile of the real thing, if you aren't too critical and at arm's length. I've held a real one and the Chinese do not begin to match the quality. The metal part of the handle and blade are one solid piece on a real one and the black handle is wood, not plastic. It represents a very exclusive quasi-religious order. There was a special on TV about the SS schutzstaffe(defense echelon) some time back. I have learned from a WWII veteran that many US troops executed them on sight, knowing that many oversaw most of the infamous "Final Solution".
WELL CRAFTED, WELL MADE, AND VERY WELL CONSTRUCTED!!!! UNITED HAS A CLEAR WINNER WITH THIS LATEST OFFERING---HOLDS A SERIOUS RAZOR-SHARP EDGE & WILL PERFORM WELL DEFENSIVELY & OFFENSIVELY!!!
