"So far I field dressed and skinned 4 deer and butchered them complete... The edge is like the 1st day I received it. Keep up the good work. I'm so happy I waited to get one of your knives."

"I have used the knife a lot since I received it and I must say that I am positively surprised with the edge holding and build quality. I have quality knives in A2, D2, CPM 3V, M390, CPM 110V, CPM 90v… but your A2 is something else. You must have that heat treatment spot on. This knife has become something of a holy grail for me."

"Just a little note to say I have finally had a chance to take my shiny new knife on a camping trip. It performed really well for everything I tried from batonning to making fine feather sticks and is still shaving sharp. Totally worth the wait. So pleased and wanted to say fantastic job making it."

"I just wanted to follow up and confirm that my Resolute delivered without issue.. and holy shit, it's absolutely exceeded my expectations. I took it down with me to meet up with a few of the other IRC folks ... and I didn't hear anything but admiration from them. We're talking about a crowd that'll pick apart details on the nicest of knives ... and it was nothing but praise.

"Aaron, I got my knife today as a Christmas present from my wife and I have to say I'm stoked. This knife is so nice. The quality looks top-notch on your site but is even more impressive in person. If people could hold these in their hands, they would buy for sure. Anyone thinking about buying one of these, just do it, you will be so happy you did."

"The culmination of two years of lurking around your YouTube videos and wishing and waiting for an MKIII ended about 30 minutes ago. It'll probably only slice bologna (condo homeowners association won't let me trim trees) but even that will be a joy. Fun to just hold a flawless, finely crafted tool. My grandson will get it and the story of it's creation once I'm done. They are shipped SHARP!"
