    got these two today. xl natrix and bareknuckle. edges and bevels are poorly done on both other than that nicely made and done. 15815518309193056229345464879180.jpg 15815518704072762467216601134968.jpg

    the xl is heavy but not as heavy as an artisan cutlery tradition I have in bronze with steel liners.

    pic of it....

    I'm liking its size and heft.

    Good to see the build quality is still there when it comes to Kershaw, I have my eye on the Bareknuckle 20CV. I can fix a wonky grind with a little stone time but I can't fix sloppy construction.

    How does the D2 hold up on the Kershaws so far?
