How to Use
Materials and Construction
Featured positive reviews:
The handle feels significantly heavier and balance loaded than the Valkyrie. Whereas the Valkyrie feels like it flies in the air as you use it, the Radioactive indeed feels like lead. The names are very good approximations of the design and not just aesthetically. The materials for both knives are great, so it is simply a matter of choosing the method of wielding. A tanto is best held in two hands, gripped to the chest, thrusting with the entire body weight behind it. The valkyrie can be hidden behind your body very naturally while in hand, being extremely small and balanced in the middle.
The steel is also different, D2 vs the more exotic one. The D2 steel doesn't feel as alive to my hand, but that is simply a personal thing. Most people will need to look up the steel qualities and make a choice, although at this price point, it is orders of magnitude better than the 5cr stainless steel bowie or 440 stainless steel. If you have a sheathe and cloth that absorbs moisture, you won't need too much chrome.
