Knives of Alaska? my newest blade

I got an email from Midway a while back announcing some "good" knife deals. I had never heard of this brand before but the great reviews at Midway swayed me I must confess. It came in Friday and I'm initially very impressed. It is a solid piece of hardware with a heavy-duty leather sheath. all supposedly made in the USA. It is sharp as hell (from the reviews-"I used it 7 times for cleaning deer. Stayed sharp.....!" ) right out of the box. Not bad for less than $90 shipped.

D2 steel and made in the USA. Hard to beat that for $90. I like the design too.

Thanks for the reply sir! Yeah, the design caught my eye too. Twenty years ago or more, I saw a knife in a little Atlanta Cutlery catalogue. It was made by a custom knife maker named Dan E. Brdlik. I really liked that knife but couldn't afford one at the time. Dan passed away some time back I've since learned. This Alaskan knife sort of reminded me of that Brdlik knife. Here a pic of the Brdlik Fighter:

This $90 knife has a more useful shape and a stronger point than that custom clip blade "fighting knife"

Yeah, I think it's a good deal.
