Cons: None
Don't leave home without it.
Great knife with a wonderful sheath. I wanted a good knife did plenty of research and I wanted a legal to carry knife. Where I live this fits the bill. This is what I came up with 5 1/4" mean I get asked a lot of questions but I don't go to jail. Didn't want a skinning knife just a good all-around rope cutting knife for work purposes. I'm an a.c. tech so there is a lot of rope, zip ties and packages. I didn't want a bowie knife like everyone else. I wanted something a little sexier and different. The pros are light weight, easy handling, great grip, one restraining strap unlike the plastic sheath (I can get the knife out when I need it not two mins later) and all-out quality. The only issues I have had are not even a real issue you just have to put some Remington oil on the blade about once a week for rust prevention. The sheath took a while to form to the knife but it formed so well it's ridiculous. I would buy this knife again. Thought about one for my bug out bag but I pretty sure this knife will out last me.

Great service
I had great service from Knifecentre though as a UK resident I was not made aware that UPS would later bill me for import tax. The knife is excellent. Good working size, more manageable than the Ka Bar fighting knife . Came with a great edge which is stropping up nicely. Great product, good service.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Excellent utility knife
This is a very strong blade and is excellent for back country travel where a fixed blade is ideal and small enough that it fits nicely on a backback for easy access. A full size would be a better choice if you are wanting to fell small trees. This is an excellent quality knife for an excellent price.
