I apologize for the delay in my post this week, I've been a little bit under the weather and have had a hard time getting things done. But here it is the H6 Blue Sheep from Real Steel. I picked this up off of Drop a while back and have gotten used to it.

I want to start with my favorite part of this knife, the blade. I like that it is just over 3.5" so it gives me a great cutting area to work with. I also really enjoy the design of the blade, it appeals to me for whatever reason. I also like the feel of the G-10 handle as it provides just enough grip to provide security without being to aggressive. When in use, the handle really fills my hand and gives me great purchase.
I have a few things that I don't really like about this knife. First and foremost, the thumb studs are a little bit difficult to grip without hurting your finger tips. I have found that it is really easy to accidentally slide your finger over the top and not catch the blade. I also have found that the blade has a ton of play when it is closed. There is almost no play when open, but when closed it wiggles way to much.
This isn't a bad time, it has some good features, but definitely some flaws as well. I am definitely glad that I got this on a discount and did not pay full price. I feel like I should have more to say but it really just kind of ends there.
