It's alive... wait should it have a tanto point? Did you use it that much that it was sharpened off or did you just modify it straight out of the box?

i want a clip point , not tanto , cause the tanto is sooooo suck when do some utility work.

i had chopped two iron tubes through with it about one year ago , i posted a tread on KNIFETESTS.

it is really a tough knife , but on the solf side , so do not except it was a good cutter.

i ask Mr.Qiu for fixing it up and set micata slabs on .

Well that makes sense. Looks like it might work good as an all around blade

That is a hell of a transformation of a simple utility pattern. Are you getting a new case made for it? Who is doing the work?

i have the knife for about 2years , i had use it chopping through a iron tube with diameter one inch two times , so sharpening out the wounds made a bad S edge on it .

i asked Mr.qiu for repairing it . and he will made a yellow leather sheath for it .
