I had a full size one that was great. once I was cutting something and the blade slipped through and hit the edge on a cinder block. I was afraid to look at the edge, but when I did you could barely til it hit. I few good strokes on a hone and it was back in shape. I did trade end up trading it to a friend toward a Kimber Pro CDP. I have a lot more guns then knives so this was good for me. I do miss it from time to time But the CDP helps me forget the pain.
