Mine came in Friday, but I was hunting since Thursday afternoon so I didn't get to use it. Initial impressions were good. Definitely more sturdy than I imagined. Also more weight forward than I expected. I'm gonna assume that's a good thing. Will definitely allow a smaller blade to pack a bit more punch. The handle is a little thin for my tastes so depending on how I feel after using it, I might add an epoxy twine wrap to thicken it up some. Oh and were the libertards only for the clever? I was kinda looking forward to having one to show off lol.
