Once again CS offer great value for money. The Kudu is a quirky little knife (yeah at over 4 inch the blade is long). It is very light and easy to carry. Slim long blade and zytek handle with a locking mechanism taken from the Okapi knife made by the millions in Germany in the 1800s for the white immigrant market in Central Afica back then. The Krupp stainless blade is easily made razor sharp on a good stone. The odd locking mech may be too much for some, but when you get used to it its great. The long thin blade is as useful in the kitchen as when camping or fishing. I have read that this style of knife is favoured by gangsters in South Africa and Jamaica and is seen as a "saturday night special" by law enforcement agencies over there. I just like this light useful cheap utility knife.
