My new Grohmann number 4!
on: February 28, 2009, 06:51:09 PM
Ok after a bit of hassel I've finally got my Grohnnie 4 :D

Pic curtesy of Google...


These are only initial ramblings, but so far I can tell you it's bloody perfect :o. The fit and finish are excellent, and the Water Buffelo scales could almost be taken for plastic given the perfect, almost mirror polish on them :)

But much more impressive than that are the ergonomics, which with absolutely no word of a lie, are faultless :tu: This is THE finest handling knife I have ever had the privilege of handling, truly the weight, heft and balance could have been hand crafted for my physiology, so perfect is the fit :) The size and shape of the blade feel totally instinctive in use, in fact it's like using one of your fingers, albeit a wee bit sharper :D

This is going to be a faithful friend and no mistake :), I can't wait for a chance to really use it :)

I'll report back when I've had it and used it in anger :salute:

Oh it's be coming :tu:

As for the steel, it's carbon :)

My rough rule of thumb is fixed blades should be carbon, and MT's and Folders should be TRUE stainless :)

Nice, I heard their carbon steel is good. However I know their stainless is pretty bad, 440Aish at best.

Well according to the folks I bought mine from, the factory is currently working flat out on fulfilling a contract for the Canadian Military, so if you can't find someone with them in stock, you may have a bit if a wait on your hands :-\
