Let me tell you the 2.5 is a great knife it has become my EDC. It just feels right. Is there's better knife company out there? nah I don't think so
This is an updated review from my earlier post on 11/11/15. I have to say, I am not disappointed at all Wth my purchase. Let's talk about the blade. The Flat grind make cutting tasks easy with no drag. It comes arm hair cutting sharp. It has a stone wash finish, which looks really nice. It come with a 90 degree spine which makestrel it a great fire rod striker. Now let's talk about the handle. I like micarta, however... it is not suitable for processing game. The handle actually grew on me quit a bit. It feels very nice in the hand. I also love that there is no jimping on the spine. Personally, I don't really care about jimping. So there is my overall update on my thought on the JG3.
Pros:

The Sheath its made in the USA and its plain so you can put your own finish on it.
The Scales on this is Micarta; I like this material.
Its got a nice stone washed blade.
It does its job well as an EDC.

Cons:

I have no complaints about this knife.
The JG-3 has hit the sweet spot for me for EDC. In spite of the raves for both the Izulz and Izula II, I found them a little small and awkward in my hand and neither came with a sheath that had the ease of access that the Camp Lore has. As my small knives got bigger and my medium knives got smaller; the JG-3 just fit right into the size I was groping for.
All around a great carving knife. Great company stick with them guys. will have a review posted tonight on Youtube.
