Blade came with yellow discolorations on the blade in 3 places when shown towards strong light. I used a stone to clean it up, then oiled it. Otherwise, very satisfied. The handle is much better than shown in the pictures. Sort of smooth but also grippy. Could be bigger just as the hand guards. However the biggest surprise is the shape of the blade. You have to hold it in your hand and feel it to appreciate it! Longer and thinner than anticipated, yet light and very well balanced. Difficult to fathom the full shape at first, it is sort of a specialist knife, definitely not for chopping trees, but a true Russian bear knife! Would be interesting to compare side-by-side to the Tops Wild Pig Hunter, which of course is not available since the last 6 months at least!!!!
