I bought this knife over the summer to use as a boating knife, and man does this guy live up to the job. The H-1 steel is what first drew me to the knife. I was skeptical about the supposed rust proof qualities it was said to have but I have yet to put a drop of oil on it and its still just as rust free as when I took it out of the box. The H-1 itself doesnt have great edge-retention but its fairly easy to keep sharp using a leather strop.
I really like the fact that the knife is quite thin, it rides very inconspicuously in your pocket. Although, at times the fact that it is so thin means it doesnt fit the best in my hand....Its very long but, again, not too thick. I really like the rounded tip too. It helps when your trying to real close to something fragile. And it gives you an excuse to buy more in the salt series to make up for the lack of a tip.
Overall this is a first class knife and great to have in and around the water.
