Closeouts. Lightweight and compact, this Wusthof hunting knife is incredibly durable and strong thanks to a titanium-coated 440HC stainless steel blade that keeps a sharp edge, maintains balance and provides sure handling in the field.

Light weight, nice blade, handle better than it looks in picture. Great for pack in hunting. We will see how it holds up. 440C or HC can be really good or not so good. It all depends on the hardening process. With this good name brand I hope its really good. So far it seems a good knife that's why the four stars. Haven't used it on Mule Deer or Elk yet so it didn't get five. We will see. The others that say it doesn't fit the sheath don't know what they are doing. Its a compression fit. You push the blade AND part of the handle down into the sheath. It works fine.

Quality Knife, walks and talks fine, the sheath is loose fit and 2 inches longer than the knife. Turn it upside down and the knife falls out. No keeper on sheath. Knife is a 4 star, sheath is a 1 star.

Have had this item in my wish list for months and finaly made the purchase. My first use was for skinning a deer head for a Eurpean mount and it worked great. I would recommend this knife for anyone that hunts big and small game.

Knife was sharp out of box. Anti corrosion coating seams durable. This seems to be a full tang handle. So it has a heavy feel in hand though balanced. A bit of the weight seems to be more in the handle. It is not for delicate work. When fully gripped it feels secure and stable.
minus a half star for the sheath. It would be better for a snap securement system. The knife holds when held upside down but just needs a little shake to slip out. No big deal, just keep in mind that it may or may not hold while in belt under shaking or vibration.
I would imagine this could be a good knife for skinning a large animal, carving, cutting rope. Good as a survival knife. I bought this and am packing it for my bug out bag
