Strong Knife. Paint The Sheath
I love this knife. Sometimes I think I should build a shrine for it. I bought this knife specifically to carry if there is a major regional crisis that turns off the power or food delivery, etc. Ammunition will be in short supply, and a big honking knife on my belt will save me from having to expend ammo if need be. I prefer my excellent Finnish-made Fiskars log-splitting hatchet for word processing (fire/shelter), and carry that when I pack. And the handle on the RTAK2 is just slightly too large to accommodate a great grip when the hand is fatigued. The sheath was only average, no... its better than that. I like the sheath, but decided to use some Krylon and I painted it camo. The painting transformed the knife from awesome to whatever better than awesome it. I carry this unit in my 4Runner, sleep with it beside my bed, or have it beside my chair in my living room. Its more than merely a great knife. Its a statement, and a seriously dependable companion to have by your side if the fight breaks out. You can deploy a knife much faster than you can deploy a pistol, and this knife, when deployed, is very dangerous.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Damned Good!
This isn't a cuticle trimmer or nose-hair remover. It is a big, heavy, sharp as hell blade that would very easily take off a forearm or head. It's not made for pretty. It's made to chop your way through whatever stands before you, especially when making a quick hide or a longer term shelter. You can beat on it with whatever and split some fairly large diameter logs. Though I have not used it for splitting large game pelvises, etc., I don't doubt it could do it. I generally use it for making little sticks out of big ones for firewood, and beheading small game and birds and turtles. Yeah, the sheath isn't the best. Find a good leather worker and give him some 8 to 9 ounce leather and some heavy copper rivets. You don't want to accidentally fall on this - a severe leg wound would probably lead to a quick bleed-out, which is why the furnished scabbard is a negative 10 in my book. The weight is why you are buying it - no need for a hatchet with this, excepting "way back" regions.

Pros: Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Blade Sharpness
Huge. Maybe a bit too huge.
Something the stats don't really impress is just how enormous this knife really is. I have pretty big hands (~4"/10cm across the knuckles) and it's borderline too big for me. The linen micarta handles are decently grippy. I don't like the texture to the powdercoating on the blade, my personal preference would have been for something smooth, lower friction and easier to clean. The sheath is what you'd expect from a knife at Knifecenter's price, I'd have been disappointed by it if I'd paid full retail and will replace it with a leather sheath soon. The design is Ok, but the plastic insert is too lightweight for the weight of the knife and it rattles, which irritates me. It'll do fine for strapping to a pack though. I'm not sure you'd want to carry something this big on a belt. The blade sharpness out of the box leaves a lot to be desired. Even for a big 'chopper' like this, it wouldn't cut paper and that's too blunt. You don't want to be having to put a lot of force behind a blade this big or it'll bite you bad.
