    Got mine in today. Overall I’m impressed with it for being what it is, a budget fixed blade made in China. I’m probably going to buy a few more. Only nit pic I have with it is them not fully sharpening the entire blade to the choil. Easy fix though. The sheath is pretty damn nice too for an overall package of $32.50. I’m hoping to catch some fish this weekend and clean em and filet em. Looks like it’s going to be a good Slicer.[​IMG]

    That looks great... especially at the price.

    If it makes you feel any better neither of the two Wilson knives I own came fully sharpened all the way down. Not to the extent of the spyderco offering, but I always assumed it was designed like that for safety reasons.

    Yeah, I was assuming it was to protect some people from getting cut. I’ll take the edge all the way back this weekend when I get some downtime finally! It sounds like this is intentional on Phil Wilson’s part then I am going to assume. Not a problem!

    Where did you get yours from? I've been waiting for them to go in-stock (didn't preorder), but it doesn't seem like the major shops have them yet?

    Thanks for the heads up. But unfortunately, they're showing out of stock already. o_O:(

    Every place that got them in stock ran out quickly. I got mine from Cutlery Shoppe on the night of the 13th, but in less than an hour they were sold out.

    I have had mine on pre-order since the day they went up on knife center. Still no knife, but I am patient.

    May not be related or that relevant, but some of my Spyderco kitchen knives are sharpened just like that. I figured it was intentional but I dunno.
