Steel Type: Steel. Are you kidding me? WHAT steel is used in the manufacture of
the blade? Is it full-tang?

What metal is this made of?

4 Pretty good knife Dennis - OCT 16, 2013

Overall, for the 20 bucks I spent, this is a pretty good, pretty useful knife.

I love the size, the low-profile design, the length of the blade, the full-tang design, and the rubberized handle. The knife just feels good in my hand and, it works great for light-duty applications.

If I were to change anything, I'd make the blade a little thicker, maybe not as thick as my Mora, but just a little thicker. And, it would be nice if this was a Portland-made knife. I'd pay more for that.

Again, though, for 20 bucks, you really can't go wrong.

Awesome scaled fish and the sharpener was right there with me.

The design of this knife is great. The length of the handle and blade give a good combination of ergonomics and use. However I was considering this knife and the Mora knives. Mora handles are all wrong for me but the blades are thick enough to do what I want. This Myth has the best handle but a thin flexible blade. I would love to see this knife with a thicker blade while retaining the handle and sheath combination. The blade shape is perfect, just too thin.

I have carried folding knives all of my life for light-duty utility work ... cutting rope, chopping up dog treats, sharpening pencils ... you name it. For various reasons, I have decided to move away from folding knives and use a fixed-blade. So, I went shopping and ran across the Myth Compact.

It was exactly what I needed ... unobtrusive, professional looking, nicely designed, light-weight.

The blade is advertised as a paring knife, and it is. It is a little thinner than I am used to. Even pocket knife blades are much thicker. However, I was able to use the back side of the blade near the handle to open a beer bottle, so it is plenty sturdy enough. The blade is full-tang, which I really appreciate.

In a nutshell, I really like this little knife and am looking forward to putting it through day-to-day paces for a while.

I think the sheath is sharp-looking and rugged. If it breaks, at least Gerber has a life-time warranty. But I don't see it breaking easily.

Quite happy with this knife. Skinned and processed my deer with it. Initial field dressing was done with my fixed blade gator drop point. Only complaint, sharpener "plugged up" when I toucvhed up the edge in the feild.

1 Junk knife Devin - SEP 28, 2012

I bought this knife thinking it would be a great skinner and found that is was cheaply made and the sheath is brutal falls apart. Very poor quality would not recommend.

4 Your Title Highbrass6 - SEP 21, 2012

Nice little knife. Light flexible blade, nice grip. Good for cleaning birds or trout. Sheath is nice but the "built in sharpener" is a little lacking. Could have lived without the rubber tab at the top.
OVer all... Winner!

4 blade thickness once - SEP 20, 2012

The Myth Compact Fixed Blade knife is a sweet little knife. Bought it for kayaking to where on my PFD for easy access. It is perfect for it. It holds its self in the sheath by two divets in the handle, which workd great. The handle is ruberized so it won't slip even when wet. The sheath has a integrated blade sharpener too. Couldn't ask for much more in a little knife lit the Myth Compact.
