“I didn’t immediately peg this as a Gavko…” as he reviews the most “Gavko” of all Gavko designs. Let me know if you want info on the custom maker behind these designs.

If they put their new axis lock on it I might consider paying 200 dollars for a chinesium knife. Also wish they would make a cheaper version, with d2. I don't think I would edc the knife. I would love the blade shape for my collection, but there's a million other knives I would prefer for over 200 dollars. I also don't like s35vn, rip cold steel xhp knives.

Great looking knife, thanks for the Review and the detailed breakdown! I'll wait for the sale price.😉 Great vid!

Blade shape is very aesthetic but impractical for some purposes. HOWEVER it cuts cardboard-type-stuff like an insane beast. 🙂 I'm going to sharpen it on spyderco sharpmaker rods instead of KME. Some sharpening wonks recommended me rods for recurve blades. Fit and finish feels very high end (e.g. spydiechef). DIE MICROSOFT WORD FONT PARAGRAPH. 🙂

Edit: I think the blade shape is supposed to remind people of a shark tooth. 🦈

I like Artisan mostly for their designs, but this one has too many lines to it, if that makes sense! Love that they started CJRB as well, lots of good stuff in that line!
