Ok got my stainless Douk-douk today and thought I'd give a short review of it,you'll have to excuse the fact that I haven't a camera worth a damn so I nabbed a pic off ye old 'net.
Construction:Well made and thin,I mean really thin! and it's not perfect as you can see some of the assembly is done by hand-this good since you can "use" it without a break-in
Weight:this is weird but I don't know any other way to say it;it's not heavy yet it feels solid..that's because of the all-metal construction.
Edge-this thing is sharp! strangely the back of the edge was somewhat dull but it sharpened up quick;the blade is thick enough at the base to be sturdy but it tapers nicely to the tip..and it's flat ground so you wind up with a really razor ready edge,I prefer just "sharp" though so I won't need to worry about chipping.
Blade steel-?? marked "440" on the tang,your guess is good as mine as to what kind
Action:this is a slip joint,yet unlike any I've run into so far....you have to put your mind to opening it,no glass smooth action here folks-it's rough! but it also assures you won't fold the thing on your fingers by accident,I honestly can't see this thing folding any other way then on purpose,and there's a stop half-way so getting it open means two hands or nothing...if you think you'll need a knife in a hurry carry a one-hand opener.
Lastly:this knife for something so thin is very comfy to cut with,the thin sharp edge and the fact that the folded round part of the handel sits against your hand make it good for even thick cardboard,also eventhough it is a bit large (about 4 3/4in closed and a 3 1/2in blade) it's kinda SAK harmless looking so you might not scare the "sheeple" too much carrying this around-but don't be fooled,this knife has a bloody,bloody history and I could see it being a mean defense knife...just how to get it open in a hurry?
Hope you all like this short review.
