Hello David, I had given up on this thread, but this knife<(REALLY STUPID NAME!!) is a pretty ok knife..Its one of those you find yourself reaching for more often than you want to. It does work well on fruit peeling, ect. The blade seems to be too narrow for say chopping carrots,celery,ect. The blade thickness is good and thins with a false edge bevel. The knife works well for delicate cutting and paring. Seems to be an odd blade to handle angle when chopping you must use a steep angle or your fingers hit the counter or chopping block, you end up using the very tip of the blade only. The knife whittles good. You are right about the tip being barely covered, it is. But have had no problems in that area, the block at the end kinda protects it.
The pocket clip is pretty low, have snagged it a few times, almost lost it! Makes a great shirt knife. The tip up carry is great. It is well built and smooth as butter. Lastly the steel seems to have a 61 rw hardness, it sharpens slow, temper on Kershaws ats is hit & miss?? All in all it is a nifty little blade..Works well on a New York Strip
Don't know where they got the name? They must have been drinking to much Wild Turkey
Its a great knife for $60, I wouldn't pay more! Hope this helps.
Your friend Bart
