AC makes some really ugly blades, including this one. Just to show that I am not prejudiced against this company, here is one of their offerings that I purchased. $40.00. D2, Stonewashed, 4", flipper. There is a lanyard hole buried in my hypothenar eminence. Very good F&F, Solid lock up. It might be a good thing that I don't like every knife that I see. I doubt that they would be very good at providing heat and light this winter.
