It was sure nice to get a handwritten note from the good folks at Grayman knives in appreciation for taking a look at their folder. Jack first put us on to the folks at Grayman and this is a no nonsense knife maker, all of their knives are Made in the USA. FYI-You don't get too many manufacturer's notes from China these days.
When I first pulled the Satu folder out of the box I thought it was a bit too big for a folder. After a closer look and actually putting the blade to work I started really warming up to the Satu.
In less than an hour after I got the knife, I pried open a crate of ammo, opened two boxes, chopped veggies for a salad (being honest) and cracked two beer bottles open. Mere child's play for the Satu but none-the-less it was up to the task.
It's obvious that Grayman makes utility blades that are meant to be put to work. While I tend to like a smaller blade like my Emerson Commander, the Satu folder would make an excellent patrol or field blade. It would make short work out of just about anything you put in its path in the field and will make an excellent addition to any collection. However, like they say on their site, this is definitely not a show knife! It's meant to be put to work so go get one and see for yourself. Take a look below. Brandon From their site
