Ok , so I had to have one - No seriously !
I have nothing against reviews , except for the lack of real world data in regards to edge holding .
Opinion is well enough , but is only opinion . It only goes so far . I mean , one man's opinion is another man's BS .
And one man's BS is another man's gospel ... ( Why I hold opinion in such high regard )
So if I see enough reviews opinion'ing a knife into the stratosphere without Facts or Data to back it up ? I might have to buy that knife - If I can afford it !
And here we are , I have a BPS sheath knife .
The BS ( That's BS folks ) BS1FTS ... (?) Ominus ...... Perhaps
1st Impressions :
This is the baby of the BPS series .. Overall length according to my ruler being 200mm .. ( That's folding knife size )
It's very light .. 2.7 ounces and one ounce for the sheath according to my scales . ( 3.7 ounces as a package )
Sheath looks to be very well made from relatively soft leather .
THe knife on close examination , is a little rough around the edges and looks to be 90 to 95 percent finished .
The blade is well polished , but around the handle it's a little NQR . ( Built and finished to a price I guess )
The blade on mine has damage to the edge , around the 3/4 mark from the front of the blade . ( Won't affect the rope slice )
The bevel is Scandi , but has a micro bevel that is just barely perceivable to the naked eye , can be clearly seen under magnification .
There were a few minor things I did not care for with the grip .... So out with my motor tool for some work .
My hand felt a little crowded on the grip , so I removed some material from the front of the grip so my hand could be a little further forward .
I also narrowed the front of the grips so the knife would sit deeper in the sheath .
And that is where we are at .. Just need to put that factory edge to the rope and see what sort of result we get .
