Oh dear ! It does disappoint ! Let me count the ways .
1) Its a Scandi edge roller
2) It's spine less
3) For O1 it's ( in my opinion ) on the soft side . 55HRC file bites & the 50 HRC file skates .
4) 150 slice fail ( rolled edge )
I suppose one good thing is that the edge strops back strong with not a lot of effort . ( This might be good , especially out in the field )
But , there are probably cheaper knives / steels that can do the same thing or more ..
So colour me a little disappointed !

Not close to the edge holding I would have liked
I had to grind the spine to scrape wood / throw ferro
Sorry Brisa , my wallet feels a little hard done by the 95 in O1 ..
Possibly a waste of money when cheaper knives will do a better job . ( Cough / cough = Mora or Finn Hawk )
Hmmm , 4 Mora's or one Brisa 95 in O1 ..... Yeah , I'm going to plead no contest on that one !

Once more onto the rope !
Oh dear , I tried real hard & Failed !
The edge rolled at 100 slices of rope , this is down from the previous 150 roll .
Strops back strong - ?
Edge retention VS easy edge maintenance ?
