Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Unique and functional product
The knife is perfect for my hands. You are gripping a comfortable and secure handle when you hold this knife and the business end is an arrowhead pointed at a 45 degree angle towards your foe in either grip. The sheath is decent, great retention but I don't like the material. 6/5* knife for the price 4/5 sheath. For the money this is a home run. I think it impossible to find a more functional and concealable fixed blade for this price point. Police and civilians alike should feel a bit safer with one of these close by.
