i have had one for about 3 or 4 years and really like it. it batons wood very well. about 3 months after i got it, i got the edge reprofiled to have a bit of a longer taper to it. now it bites into the wood much better when chopping. i carry this knife until i can get a better sheath for my kukri. i really like the D2 steel, i have had no problems with rust so far.
Like I mentioned, the edge needs serious re-profiling and handling. I haven't had as much luck with the Outcast as you have. I have a new video I will up maybe Thursday where you see it compared to others and you may be surprised!
I've had an outcast since they first came out
I really like it.
I have a virtually brand new one since my buddy borrowed and lost my well used original one.
I re-profiled my original one, will do the same with this one
