I've been using the pair to slash/breakdown boxes and mail all week, cutting cardboard, tape and paper, as well as some plastic straps, food bags and wrappings. Both knives were sharp and burr-free out of the box, but I dressed the edge on both with one of those pocket ceramic sharpeners, anyway...what's good enough for the 30-year old Opinel is good enough for these, eh?
The tanto-bladed knife took a very nice edge and has kept it. The skeleton knife's shape focuses a lot of work onto the belly of the blade and that's lost some keen but is still good. For Ten Bucks, these are good.
