Not Available In Any Store!!!

 From an advert brought to us by our good friends at JewTube!!! This knife was banned because it was too sharp!!!

My test of sharpness is the ol’ shave the arm hair thing. If it takes hair it’s sharp enough for anything I gotta do. I can get most of my knives there. I’m far more interested in how long they retain their edge. From what I am seeing, Japanese blades are the best there are, they’re hand made and they are expensive enough to induce nosebleeds. In all things the old adage holds that you get what you pay for, generally speaking.

  1. A lot of quality built into vintage Japanese (Al Mar - Hattori - Cold Steel) and German (Puma - Schlieper) products. For a working blade, vintage Schrade USA and Western have great carbon steel that takes an edge.

  2. For keeping an edge, you can't beat the modern CPM steels. Benchmade in folders and Bark River for fixed blades. But you will need ceramic stones to sharpen them.

  3. It looks like the old Schrades sort of... I had a buddy with one years ago...

  4. The name makes my eyebrows raise as Huusk is not a Japanese word - they all end in a vowel or 'n'.
