Deluxe Boot Knife (or MTech MT-20-03 if you want specifics ;) )

I received this the other day, it’s a lot better than I was expecting, the first thing that struck me was the weight, it’s not overly heavy, but you know your holding a solid, well made knife.
It’s 9” overall with a 4” Grip & 4” Double Edged Blade with a Full Tang Thickness of 4mm.
It came very sharp out of the box, the Sheath is also very well made, a Semi-Rigid Nylon affair, better than I was expecting as well.
It doesn’t have a ‘Boot Knife’ type of attachment, just a standard Belt Loop, personally I prefer this set-up, it’s very easy to handle & quite well balanced, although I’ve not really said a lot, those who have read my other reviews know I tend to drone on ( :roll: ), but take that as a good thing.
Overall I’m extremely happy with my purchase, if your looking for a good quality Dagger for an outstanding price, (£15 + £4 p&p), I would seriously recommend this knife, ‘It’s a Cracker!’

Yeah but when you use a mirror polished blade it's a right PITA to keep it shiny, when it's a brushed finish anybody can remove scuffs and scratches with minimal time, cost and effort - especially if you're a lazy skinflint like me. :D

i have a katana with a mirror polished blade so i dont mind keeping it shiny, in fact its pretty easy to do so, so keeping a wee knife blade shiny would be a breeze

Thats nice shame its got a nylon sheath instead of a nice black leather one, they don't look in keeping with each other to me because the knife looks very traditional.

I agree, but that would no doubt increase the cost & not by a little I'd guess, the nylon one is very good, plus you could always get a leather one made, :D

I think a custom leather sheath might be a bit much for a mtech. lol... Maybe get someone to knock up something in kydex... Even a basic leather one would take the best part of 3 hours labour before materials... That's an expensive case...
