Anybody have experience with this knife or other MKC knives? I’ve always carried Bucks and this is my first higher dollar knife. It has the mangacut steel blade. Any pointers on maintaining and sharpening?
BTW, my wife saw me looking at them and she found one and bought it for me.

I’ve never owned an MKC knife, but Magnacut is a great stainless steel. It shouldn’t really need any maintenance. It’s also relatively easy to sharpen compared to some other stainless steels.

It helps to know what degree your secondary bevel (cutting edge) is sharpened to when it’s time to sharpen. I bet they have that information listed on the website.

It should be easy to touch up with a ceramic rod.

I was interested in a Magnacut steel knife also. Searching the forum I came across this thread.

Looking at the knife Hirogen posted and his review I went to their website. I ordered the same model he has only with an orange handle for around 215.00 shipped. It’s built like a tank and feels great in my hand. It came with a sheath and razor sharp.
